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 Lecturer, Senior Lecturer or Reader level to join the School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering, particularly in the following areas:

Automation and Robotics

We are looking to appoint candidates with a strong background in automation and robotics for industrial applications with research focus in areas such as (but not limited to) collaborative human-machine systems, soft robotics, sensing and perception, mechatronic systems, artificial intelligence, and/or adaptive control. Research themes that address the increasing need for more adaptive and agile automation and robotic solutions in a clear industrial context would be particularly attractive.

Engineering academics at Loughborough University have a long-standing tradition of industrial experience and engagement. Candidates will have a profile in line with this tradition and those from outside of academia who have promise to become a top academic are encouraged to apply. A relevant PhD or equivalent research/industrial experience is desirable.

Systems Engineering

Candidates will have a focus on systems architecting and the practical use of models, and knowledge of and experience in applying Systems Engineering processes, be able to lead a research programme, and deliver research informed teaching at the postgraduate level in the area of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE).  Candidates will have an established track record within Systems Engineering.  Experience in development of machine learning will also be valued.   
 
Loughborough University has delivered master’s and doctoral level education in Systems Engineering for nearly 30 years that has evolved with the changing needs of industry.  The current programme has a strong emphasis on Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE).  The successful candidate will demonstrate their ability to grow into a balanced programme of postgraduate level of teaching, direction of research students, engagement with industry, and establishing a strong research track record.

Thermofluids for future energy systems

We are looking to appoint candidates with a strong background in mechanical engineering and in particular thermodynamics and fluid mechanics for applications with a research focus in areas such as (but not limited to): low carbon energy generation, storage and transmission; computational approaches to thermofluid challenges and experience of carrying out and/or planning practical/experimental thermofluids related research. Research themes that address the increasing need for low carbon, highly efficient energy systems would be particularly attractive.
