Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for three University Lectureships. They should have a proven record of scholarship in experimental and/or theoretical research involving Engineering Materials, Solid Mechanics, Mechanics of Biological Materials or Computational Mechanics. The lecturers will be expected to contribute directly to the research and teaching of the Mechanics, Materials and Design Division of the Engineering Department. This Division enjoys an international reputation for high-quality, innovative research in materials design and characterisation, including novel micro-architectured materials, bulk high-temperature superconducting materials, and increasingly in biological materials.
The posts will involve contributing to the teaching of the undergraduate course in Engineering, leading to the BA and MEng degrees. The successful candidates will take up the appointments 1 October 2006 or as soon as possible thereafter. The appointment will be for 5 years in the first instance with the possibility of reappointment to the retiring age subject to satisfactory performance. The current pensionable scale of stipends is in the range of £25,565-£39,303 per annum.
