Lecturer in Fluid Mechanics (Teaching & Research), UK

The University of Dundee is seeking an exceptional candidate to join our Fluid Mechanics Group, based within Civil Engineering in the School of Science and Engineering. The current research of the group spans a wide range of areas, involving numerical, laboratory and field based studies and has significant strength in the area of environmental fluid mechanics. We are seeking to grow this area by making a Lectureship appointment, with applications especially encouraged from researchers working in coastal and marine processes or in computational fluid dynamics applied to coastal dynamics.

The School is looking for a candidate with a strong track record of research and a clear research plan that articulates with (or expands significantly) the current research areas of the Fluid Mechanics group. It encourages applications from holders of personal Fellowships.

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the development of research in this area by publishing in the highest quality journals and attracting appropriate research funding. For appointments at Grade 8, candidates are expected to show evidence of having attracted independent funding. Additionally, the successful candidate will be expected to take an active role in the teaching of BEng and MEng programmes as well as supporting teaching at Masters level.

The School of Science and Engineering has significant research strengths in Civil Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Physics, Computing and Mathematics. It also houses one of the world's leading forensic science centres, the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification. It provides a friendly and supportive environment for staff and students and is actively engaged in the University's transformative goal of becoming Scotland's leading University.

The appointee will be expected to contribute to research in Civil Engineering and to teaching and administration within the School. He/she will be expected to:

  • Contribute to the ongoing research in fluid mechanics and develop new avenues of research
  • Contribute to the generation of external research funding
  • Publish in high quality research journals
  • Teach at undergraduate and post-graduate level.
  • Supervise students at all levels (honours and MSc projects, PhD)
  • Undertake administrative duties as outlined by the Dean

Any Additional Information

Application Requirements

  • In addition to the online form, applicants must include with their application:
  • Cover letter outlining fit to role
  • Research plan (1-2 pages) covering proposed research over the first three years of the appointment.
  • Teaching plan (1-2 pages) outlining fit to current teaching at Dundee and teaching methodology.


To further discuss the details of this post, informal inquires may be made to Prof. Ping Dong, p.dong@dundee.ac.uk.
