Outstanding applicants are sought Reader/Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in the successful and expanding Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Bath. At Reader level, the post offers a fast track opportunity for promotion to full Professor and to provide inspirational excellence and leadership in the Department’s emerging power electronics and electrical machines research. Applicants with less experience/developed track records are also welcome to apply at Lecturer/Senior Lecturer level, please see the job descriptions and person specifications for specific criteria at each level.

Research areas of interest include power electronics (especially wide bandgap device based) converters and drives for application areas such as: electrification of transport, including electric vehicles (linking with the Institute for Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems), aerospace and autonomous systems; low voltage and DC networks and smart grids; superconducting machines, fault current limiters and energy storage.

The Department has strong records in both research and teaching and close collaborations with industry. 91% of its research activity was graded as either world-leading or internationally excellent in the Research Excellence Framework 2014 and it is consistently very highly placed in the National Student Survey. Applicants should hold a PhD in a relevant discipline and have extensive or developing experience in an academic or research-focused environment.

The post-holder will carry out research, supervise research students and secure funding. Teaching will be at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, including fundamental electronic/electrical engineering material in addition to advanced modules. Participation in the Department’s student design and research projects is also expected.

All applicants must clearly state the level (Reader/Lecturer/Senior Lecturer) they are applying for, provide a full CV and separate research/teaching statements. The research statement should outline plans for research activity and grant capture over the next five years, and detail the potential fit with existing research (max length 5 pages). The teaching statement should detail areas of teaching expertise and potential teaching contributions at Bath (max length 2 pages). Please note that we are unable to process applications without these mandatory components.

The University is located in the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath and has an attractive, single-site campus that facilitates multi-disciplinary research. New Lecturers benefit from the peer support of a large group of Early Career Researchers, in additional to formal development and mentoring programmes.

Prior to drawing up a shortlist, potential candidates will be invited to give a Skype presentation on their research and teaching.
