Coventry University Group is a global education group with a mission of creating better futures. Driven by our passion and belief that through education, equity, and innovation our students, people, and communities are empowered to transform their lives and the world around them. Our people are the key to our success and each role within the group plays a key role in shaping the world around us.
As an Assistant Professor in Computer Science for Energy working in the Centre for Computational Science and Mathematical Modelling you will actively collaborate with fellow researchers to contribute to the research strategy and activities within the centre.
You will be responsible for commissioning and delivering impactful, trans-disciplinary research in the application of computing, signal processing, and data science methods in the energy domain: for example, in anomaly detection for systems security and fault detection in battery cells, working in partnership with the Centre for E-Mobility and Clean Growth (CEMCG).
The role will allow you to contribute to the research centre’s strategy and agenda, producing research with a demonstrable contribution to society and the economy through the development of relationships and partnerships externally. You will have the ability to identify and obtain external funding to support your research. You will develop the next generation of researchers, through the supervision of research fellows/assistants, doctoral students, masters’ students, technical and other support staff.
For the academic aspect of the role, up to 40% of the role will be teaching and supervising undergraduate and postgraduate students within the field, and contributing to teaching and learning across the group by being responsible for development and delivery of teaching. To ensure that students have an effective learning experience by providing quality academic guidance and advice and where appropriate reflect critically on teaching practice, implement improvements, disseminate good practice, contribute to quality monitoring and professional accreditation process.
A PhD or equivalent in a relevant area of research (or relevant discipline).
You will have an internationally recognised research profile of fundamental contributions to knowledge in the area of computer science, but will have experience of applying this knowledge to the energy domain. With an outstanding record of producing recognised, high-quality research outputs, you will have the ability to secure research funding and to deliver projects, while establishing networks relevant to the centre’s strategy.
Through your trans-disciplinary practices, you will have the ability to inform and influence industry, business, health services and policy makers and articulate the value of your research. You will have experience supervising research at postgraduate level and have a track record of successful teaching practice with evidence from documented relevant quality assurance mechanisms.
In addition, there may be the opportunity to provide an accompanying fully-funded studentship (international fees and living stipend) for projects in the area of computer science for energy.
As a global education group, equality, diversity, and inclusion are embedded within the fabric of our organisation and are a key focus of our core values. We harness the power and potential of the diverse cultures, backgrounds, abilities, and experiences of our students, colleagues, and partners to create opportunities for all.
