Lectureship in Aerospace Engineering 

The Department of Mechanical Engineering is seeking to recruit a talented and enthusiastic Lecturer (Assistant Professor) to conduct aerospace research and teach undergraduate topics related to aircraft. There are a number of aerospace-focused research groups and centres within the Department, encompassing aerodynamics, acoustics, aircraft structures, rotorcraft, spacecraft, computational fluid dynamics, aero-engine propulsion, aerospace fluid power and systems, aircraft design, and wind-energy. The candidate will be expected to bring new expertise which aligns with existing research. 

The applicant must be able to demonstrate the capability to conduct independent and/or collaborative research within the scope of Aerospace Engineering, obtain external research funding and publish high-quality research papers.

Any applicant must provide a four-page outline of a potential research grant application and be prepared to discuss this at interview. Typically this application would be aimed at the EPSRC New Investigator Award and it would be expected that the successful Lecturer (Assistant Professor) submit this within the first year of the appointment. 

The appointee will lecture MEng students on undergraduate aerospace programmes. The Department puts a great deal of emphasis on its design and student-research projects, and the appointee will be expected to participate fully in these teaching activities.

The successful applicant will work in a progressive academic environment, and will benefit from the supportive, collaborative and well-organised Department and Faculty system at the University. There is a strong culture of providing newly-appointed lecturers the necessary support and freedom to develop their academic careers. The lifestyle advantages of working and living in one of the most beautiful areas in the country are an added attraction.   

The Department holds a Silver Award for Athena SWAN scheme, which promotes gender equality among all disciplines.  We encourage the development of a diverse and inclusive workforce and offer excellent benefits, with options for flexible working. 

Shortlisted candidates will be required to give a presentation of their current research experience and future research ambitions at a date prior to a formal interview.
