The University of Oxford intends to appoint to the Professorship of Control Engineering. A non-stipendiary Professorial Fellowship with Kellogg College is attached to this Professorship. This is a Statutory (full) Professorship, which is the most senior academic grade at Oxford, often named or endowed Chairs.

This appointment is a key part of our plan to strengthen research and teaching in Control Engineering at Oxford as a pillar of our portfolio in engineering science. We seek applicants with an internationally recognized vision across the discipline of Control Engineering and its crossovers with adjacent fields. Current areas of activity within the control group include large-scale, embedded, robust and distributed optimization; polynomial/sum of squares methods; robust and optimal control; and model predictive control. The group also covers applications including biology, battery/energy management systems, transportation, aerospace, manufacturing systems and agriculture. While applications in these areas are welcome, the search is intended to identify the candidate best able to support and develop the group’s interests, widely interpreted.

You should possess an outstanding research and publication record, with internationally recognised stature in the discipline. You will have the vision, leadership, and ability to manage a substantial research team, including a record of securing grant funding, and a readiness to contribute to the development and management of the Department of Engineering Science. You should have an excellent record of teaching and graduate supervision, and the ability to guide and motivate junior colleagues.

Please see the job description for full details of the application procedure and duties of the post. The closing date for applications is 12:00 UK time on Monday 15th January 2024. Interviews are expected to be held in March 2024. For queries about the post that are not answered in the job description, please contact the Head of Department on head@eng.ox.ac.uk or telephone: +44 (0)1865 273003.

Applications are particularly welcome from women, black, and minority ethnic candidates, all of whom are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford. The Department values diversity and inclusion and holds an Athena Swan Bronze award, highlighting its commitment to promoting gender equality in academia.

Our staff and students come from all over the world and we seek to create a friendly and inclusive culture.
