Engineering at Derby has a bold vision to deliver an outstanding learning experience to our students, further develop and expand our research capacity and increase our industry engagement in the region and beyond to fulfil targets for Research Excellence Framework (REF) and Knowledge Excellence Framework (KEF) as well as provide the best opportunities to our graduates. The discipline area is located in the University’s STEM annex in Markeaton Street, where staff offices and lab facilities are co-located. Key investments in the last few years include dedicated intelligent instrumentation and smart sensor technologies, robotics, renewable energy, power engineering and advanced materials and manufacturing. The discipline area is actively engaged in knowledge exchange projects and an active applied research agenda.
We have identified significant opportunities with regional businesses in the areas of mechanics of materials, thermofluids, green energy, power generation, and advanced materials and structures, which aligns with the direction of our mechanical engineering degree and are hence strategically investing in a new post at senior lecturer level in the discipline. The recruitment drive is focused on evidenced and emerging potential in the candidates to help us fulfil our ambition. The post will further increase our research and teaching capacity in engineering materials, mechanics, energy systems, thermal and fluid dynamics.
You will actively engage in research and knowledge exchange which influences leading-edge practice, informs and inspires the research-led curriculum and teaching, and contributes to continuing subject expertise and contribution to the REF. You are expected to build on your potential to acquire external funding, engage with industry and create high-quality publications of international standing. You will develop and deliver an innovative and flexible range of learning and teaching materials providing high quality, accessible learning opportunities and an exceptional student experience in line with the University’s strategic objectives, ensuring that employability and ‘real-world’ learning are at the heart of the curriculum. While candidates might be required to contribute to teaching in the discipline area in general, this role has a specific emphasis on both teaching and research in the areas of a) Composite Materials b) Mechanics of Materials, c) Metallurgy and d) Advanced Materials and Structures.
