The Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering (ACSE) invites applications for Lecturer and Senior Lecturer positions in the area of Space Weather and Space Systems. We seek to appoint Lecturers/Senior Lecturers with the potential/ability to conduct world-leading research related to Space Weather and Space Systems.
We are looking for innovative and ground-breaking researchers who are able to develop, lead and sustain independent research of international standing relevant to Space Weather and Space Systems that is underpinned by rigorous fundamental research relevant to at least one of the three core research themes in the department: Signal Processing and Control, Machine Learning and Data Science, Robotics and Autonomous Systems. Examples of our current research topics in this area are Solar/Space Plasmas, Space Weather, Solar Wind, The Solar- Terrestrial System as a whole, Spacecraft Instrumentation, underpinned by fundamental research in nonlinear systems, system Identification of linear and nonlinear processes in data, methods of data analysis for multi-spacecraft missions, and data science. We expect successful applicants to be able to further support this research theme in our department through high-quality research publications, in terms of originality, significance and rigour, as well as research grant income and impact generation.
