Lectureships in Mechanics and Materials

University of Cambridge

Closing date: 28 February 2021

Applications are invited for two University Lectureships in Mechanics and Materials Engineering, to be known as the 'Granta Design University Lectureships in Engineering'.

One University Lectureship is primarily an experimental position, with an emphasis on coupled phenomena in the mechanics of materials, supported as appropriate by theoretical research. This field includes the intersection of mechanics and chemistry, solid-fluid interactions and thermo-mechanics. Typical applications are energy materials (for example for the conversion and storage of energy for 'green machines') and additive manufacture.

The other University Lectureship is primarily in the area of data-driven methods in mechanical engineering. Applications include, but are not limited to, probabilistic methods for inverse problems, data-driven methods for structural health monitoring, and application of machine learning methods to mechanics and materials problems.

Together these posts are anticipated to strengthen the Engineering Department's research in mechanics and materials engineering, with applications to sustainable engineering particularly encouraged.

The lecturers will be expected to provide innovative teaching in the areas of mechanics or materials engineering, contributing to undergraduate courses, laboratory coursework, supervising undergraduate projects, examining and supervising of post-graduate students.

A start-up package is negotiable for the successful applicants.

In exceptional circumstances, it may be possible to offer a supplement to the salary range stated for this role of up to 11%, £5500, for a five year period. Any such supplement would be awarded on the basis of a demonstrable history of exceptional achievement and is entirely at the discretion of the University.

The positions are based in the Engineering Department in Cambridge.

In addition to this, please ensure that you upload the application documentation as follows:

- Curriculum Vitae (CV) 

- A full publications list

- Statement of professional, teaching and research experience and describe your future research plans (no more than two pages)

Please indicate in your statement document which of the two posts you wish to be considered for. If you upload any additional documents which have not been requested, we will not be able to consider these as part of your application.

The closing date for applications is Sunday 28th February 2021. If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the HR Office (hr-office@eng.cam.ac.uk, +44 (0) 1223 332615).

The interviewing panel will meet soon after the closing date to produce a short-list; references may be solicited. Short-listed candidates will be invited to attend informal meetings with staff, give a short seminar/lecture and attend a formal interview which is expected to take place in late April or early May 2021.

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Michael Sutcliffe (mpfs@eng.cam.ac.uk) +44 (0) 1223 332996.
