We are a world class research-intensive university. We deliver teaching and learning of the highest quality. We play a leading role in economic, social and cultural development of the North East of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.

The Role
The Newcastle University School of Engineering and our partner Dyson are excited to offer an opportunity for an experienced research professional to join a team of dedicated engineers on an EPSRC project. The project will examine the mechanical design of electrical machines, focusing on the coupled dynamic behaviour of permanent magnet rotors, stators, bearings, and impellers, with research outputs directly feeding into the next generation of Dyson consumer products.

You will be a central member of the team, focusing on creation and mechanical analysis of novel electrical machines, along with rotor-dynamic simulation modelling (finite element method etc), including the multi-physical interactions between electromagnetics, thermodynamics, material mechanics, fluid dynamics and rotor-dynamics.

For the senior role you will have extensive experience of academic research, large collaborative projects and strategic leadership. You will also be able to demonstrate knowledge of the critical aspect of dynamics and mechanical design of rotating machinery. You will hold a PhD in the field of rotor-dynamics, and a Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy or the equivalent level of experience. For the Research Associate Role you will have similar technical knowledge but less experience of leadership.

You will be based at Newcastle University, but will regularly visit Dyson, with short work spells based in their UK offices and secondment opportunities to overseas research institutions.

We are the UK's largest academic research group in Electrical Power, involved in activities from Nano Watts to Giga Watts. Through our state-of-the-art research laboratory facilities, our activities are highly cross-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary. We are well known for our high level of industrial engagement.
