About the Role

Nottingham Trent University seek a Professor and Academic lead of the new Automated Distribution and Manufacturing Centre (ADMC).

The operations team will be focused on identifying opportunities with tier one logistic and manufacturing companies as well as regional small to medium size enterprises. The research and innovation team will be led by the Professor & Academic Lead and will focus on innovation and emerging technologies.

The team will also offer skills development to companies and support wider training which the University delivers with West Notts College.

The job of Professor is aligned to one of three career pathways: Teaching and Research; Teaching and Scholarship; or Teaching and Practice. We welcome applicants with a strong profile within the broad discipline and the ability to integrate a range of technologies and systems which could include industrial robotics, corobotic systems, autonomous mobile robots and sensor, actuator integration. Along with building the team, interfacing with senior representatives from businesses, retailers and the scientific community are key elements of the role, and the post holder will be experienced in cross-collaboration and working with senior representatives from industry.
