The Maudslay-Butler Research Fellowship in Engineering was established to encourage the highest quality of research in any area of Engineering. The Research Fellow will develop and benefit from close links with the University’s Department of Engineering. The Maudslay Trust, which supports the Research Fellowship, commemorates Henry Maudslay, a pioneering mechanical engineer.  We welcome applications from any candidates who have recently completed a Ph.D. or who will be expected to complete their Ph.D. in any aspect of Engineering around 1 October 2022. The Fellowship will be for three yearsThe holder will be expected to do a limited amount of undergraduate supervision for the College, but would require the permission of the Governing Body to undertake other paid work.  The stipend will be in the range of £24,174 to £27,116 p.a, depending on whether the successful candidate has been awarded their Ph.D.

Research Fellows are offered subsidised accommodation, in College if unaccompanied, in College-owned flats or houses if partnered; where accommodation is not required the Maudslay-Butler Research Fellow will be provided with a study in College.
