Lecturer in Low Carbon Design

£41,526 to £49,553 per annum. Potential to progress to £55,750 per annum through sustained exceptional contribution. (Grade 8)

Structural Engineering is changing. Climate change, sustainability, digital design and fabrication, AI and automation are all impacting the structural engineering profession. We are looking to recruit a Lecturer in Structural Engineering to help shape our taught programmes and research activity to address and take advantage of the future’s challenges. We wish to appoint a Structural Engineer with the vision and drive to help our department contribute to the UK Structural Engineers Declare Climate & Biodiversity Emergency campaign, to which our department is a signatory, and with a focus on Low Carbon Design. Your research background could be in timber, composites, glass, steel, LCA, structural analysis or design but whatever your experience we are looking for new ideas and approaches to Low Carbon Design to help shape and lead our structural engineering researchers and graduates to be at the forefront of the profession utilising their knowledge and skills to engineer a better future.

You should have a proven track record of publishing high quality journal papers, of delivering impact and the potential to generate research funding. You should also have a real passion to deliver high quality teaching at all levels and openness to new ways of delivery and assessment. You will be educated to degree level in Civil and Structural Engineering or a related discipline or have equivalent experience together with a PhD in a relevant subject area or have equivalent experience.

The Department’s teaching is underpinned by international leading research, ranked top 4 in the UK for research excellence, and offers excellent laboratories and facilities for students. All undergraduate and postgraduate courses are accredited.

Over the last five years research activity in the Department has continued to expand, which enables high employability for students through research-led teaching. Civil engineers also have a responsibility to address emerging global engineering challenges. The Department’s growing expertise in resilient infrastructure, sustainability and carbon-neutral construction, energy generation and storage, digital technologies, characterisation of new materials, and management of risk and hazards, shows a dedication and passion about making the world a better place and producing engineers who will build a better future.
