2 Academic Positions in Fluid Mechanics
Salary range: Lecturer from £45,950; Professor from £71,760 per annum
One appointment will be fixed-term for 5 years in the first instance
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has two academic vacancies in the Fluid Mechanics Section and is looking for highly able, enthusiastic and well-motivated applicants wishing to develop a career in one of Europe’s leading teaching and research institutions. Appointments can be made at any level depending on experience and track record.
The Department has an outstanding international reputation, consistently achieving the highest rating from all previous UK Research Assessment Exercises. The Department has excellent laboratory facilities, particularly for the study of fluid flows, and is keen to ensure that potential appointees would be able to take full advantage of the opportunities that these offer.
Applications are invited from individuals working within any area of Civil Engineering Fluid Mechanics. However, we are particularly keen to appoint in the area of Environmental Fluid Mechanics, including buoyancy driven flows, turbulent mixing, stratified flows and multi-phase flows.
Applicants must have a PhD (or equivalent) in a subject relevant to Fluid Mechanics and a track record of very high quality research, demonstrated by recent publications in internationally leading journals.
The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and to play a leading role in developing the Section’s research in the relevant area, building on and extending the Section’s current activities.
