MichelleLOyen's picture

Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a University Lectureship in Solid Mechanics, which falls within the Mechanics, Materials and Design Division of the Engineering Department. The successful candidate will take up the appointment as soon as possible.

The lectureship has recently been endowed by David and Susan Hibbitt, and the aim is to attract a high calibre researcher with a record of scholarship and research in experimental, computational and/or theoretical solid mechanics. Expertise is required in the mechanics of materials (structural, biological or energy materials, for example) and the successful candidate is expected to make a significant contribution to the Department’s teaching and research activities and to build a strong, externally funded research programme. The activity will fit within the Cambridge Centre for Micromechanics, which is an inter-departmental, inter-disciplinary research group housed within the Engineering Department.

The appointment is subject to an initial probationary period of 5 years with the expectation of reappointment to the retiring age subject to a tenure review. The current pensionable scale of stipends is in the range of £32,471 - £41,133 per annum.

Further particulars and an application form may be obtained from the Personnel Office, Department of Engineering, Trumpington Street, Cambridge CB2 1PZ, UK (tel +44 (0) 1223 332615, fax +44 (0) 1223 766364, email applications should be sent to this address no later than by Friday 15 December 2006 and include a completed form, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and a one-page statement of research interests and future plans.

Informal enquiries should be made to Professor Norman Fleck (telephone +44 (0)1223 748240 or email


A colleague of mine at ABAQUS sent me this link with more background on the Hibbitt fellowship. I found it quite interesting and thought others might also.

I applied for this position before, and didn’t get it.

A memory.

And what about foreign applicants? Do you provide them with housing?
