As part of the strategic development of the School of Engineering, we currently have one position available for a Lecturer with expertise in tribology.
Applications are sought from candidates whose research and teaching interests complement and enhance existing strengths within the Cardiff Tribology Group at the Cardiff School of Engineering. We are interested in applicants whose work will strengthen ongoing partnerships with related disciplines, and foster new research collaborations both within the university and beyond.
The successful applicant for this post will undertake research in related areas of tribology, with research expertise focusing on, but not limited to, elastohydrodynamic and mixed lubrication including numerical simulations, surface failure (scuffing, micropitting etc), lubrication of heavily loaded gears and bearings, health monitoring of tribological contacts and systems, including Acoustic Emission, and so on.
The tribology group at Cardiff has an international reputation for numerical simulation and experimental investigation of elastohydrodynamic contacts, in particular those operating in the mixed lubrication regimes, and is developing growing interests in applying health monitoring techniques such as Acoustic Emission to such contacts. The group currently consists of two Academics, one Research Associate and associated postgraduate students. The role would provide an opportunity to help shape the future direction of Tribology research at Cardiff.
The successful applicant will be assigned to teach modules related to tribology and solid mechanics on postgraduate and undergraduate degree programmes offered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Cardiff School of Engineering, and will be expected to develop new modules when required. Supervision of both undergraduate and postgraduate students and projects is essential.
The position is full-time (35 hours per week) and open-ended.
Salary: £49,794 - £54,395 per annum (Grade 7)
The level of the appointment made will be dependent on the relevant experience of the candidate.
