Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering
We aim to provide international leadership in research and innovation and an unrivalled educational experience.
The home of world leading engineering, we have an international reputation for being at the forefront of technological innovation and for maintaining extensive links with industry. The School is one of the largest engineering schools of its kind in the UK.
We are looking for candidates at Senior Lecturer and Lecturer level to join the School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering, particularly in the following areas:
Candidates with a focus on manufacturing platforms and technologies for next generation healthcare products such as cell and gene therapies or other ‘Advanced Therapeutic Medicinal Products’. A research focus in areas such as the new unit operations required for manufacture of emerging healthcare products, the challenges of manufacturing logistics and delivery models, manufacturing economics, or manufacturing regulation. Manufacturing research themes that address the increasingly bespoke or personalised nature of healthcare products and the resultant stratified markets would be particularly attractive.
Electrical power/power electronics
Candidates will have a strong background in the field of power systems or power electronics including hardware applications. Research areas such as (but not to be limited to) low-carbon energy systems, distributed generation, electrical energy storage, HVDC, electrical machines and drives, electric vehicles.
Microelectronics, IoT, embedded electronics
Candidates will be expected to have a demonstrable ability to carry out research or development in one or more of the following areas: real-time embedded software, IoT, applications development using programmable electronic devices and electronic circuit modelling and design.
Candidates will help strengthen and/or broaden our current research activities within the field of design engineering. Areas of research interest include and are not limited to: sustainable design, design methods, processes, tools and frameworks, CAD, modelling and simulation, product, machine and systems design.
About the School
Our highly sought after graduates are testament to our success, helping to provide industry with the skills and knowledge to give them the competitive edge required to succeed in the 21st century. We bring together outstanding facilities, superb teaching and strong links with industry to make sure our graduates are completely ready for their future career.
The vision for our research is to provide world-leading engineering solutions to today’s global challenges. Research grants, principally from the UK Research Councils and the EU, and extensive industrial collaborations generate more than £14million annual research funds and provides a portfolio at present in excess of £52million.
In addition to holding two prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prizes for our research, we are currently home to a number of national centres, in Regenerative Medicine, Power Trains and Control, Intelligent Automation and the Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology (CREST), which has a world-leading reputation for research across a spectrum of renewable energy technologies. We are also host to EPSRC CDTs and partners in others.
