The Department of Mechanical Engineering is seeking to recruit a new professor who will enlarge and enhance our prestigious academic reputation. There will be full opportunity for creative research and the necessary laboratory or virtual space to support this activity. The new appointment will provide intellectual and strategic leadership in a progressive academic environment, and will benefit from the supportive, collaborative and well-organised Department and Faculty system at the University.

There are a number of focussed research centres within the Department broadly covering the activities of staff associated within the following academic groups: Electrical Propulsion and Powertrain and Vehicles; Design and Manufacturing; Solid Mechanics and Materials; Medical Engineering; Turbomachinery, Aerospace and Energy; and Dynamics and Control including Robotics. The candidate will be expected to bring new expertise which broadly aligns with one or more of the activities of existing research centres.
