Assistant Professor in Aerospace Engineering

34956 to 46924 per annum, depending on skills and experience. Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance.

The Faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham launched new undergraduate Aerospace Engineering courses (BEng and MEng) in September 2016 and applications are invited from well qualified individuals for the above posts. Individuals will be appointed to either the Department of Mechanical, Materials and Manufacturing Engineering or the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering depending on their specialism. It is expected that the posts will result in an appointment to a teaching and research role, but exceptional candidates with extensive industrial experience, lacking a research track, may be appointed to a teaching and learning role.

The University has an extremely strong research track record in the aerospace area with the Institute for Aerospace Technology (IAT) encompassing a multidisciplinary team in the UK and at our campuses in Malaysia and China. The IAT supports the University's broad research base and international leadership in a number of thematic areas within aerospace technology to facilitate increased research and knowledge transfer activity. The Institute has over 50 academic researchers working in internationally recognised research groups, often in partnership with leading aerospace companies, including Rolls-Royce; GE; Airbus; Boeing; BAE Systems; Bombardier; GKN and Goodrich. This exciting new teaching development complements our research capability and adds to the Faculty's existing portfolio of successful and well-respected courses, creating a rare opportunity for academics to design and tailor a coherent, high quality course to meet today's aerospace challenges.

Applications are welcome from individuals with teaching/research experience within the aerospace sector in one of the following areas:

  • Aircraft/Airframe design
  • Spacecraft and space

On our undergraduate courses computer aided engineering is taught using CATIA software and we are keen to attract applicants with experience in the use of that package.

The research of the Faculty was highly ranked in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. Candidates for research and teaching roles should have a record of high quality research and publications and (ideally) teaching experience relevant to the role.

The sucessful candidates will contribute to the delivery of teaching for the Aerospace Engineering undergraduate courses and may also contribute to the teaching of other undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses within the departments of Mechanical Engineering or Electrical and Electronic Engineering as appropriate.

Candidates appointed for a teaching and research role must have a PhD or equivalent in a relevant department.

These are full-time permanent posts.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Steve Pickering, email stephen.pickering [at] nottingham[.]ac[.]uk. Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.

The University of Nottingham is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
