Reference: A3876Description: The School of Marine Science and Engineering combines 4 academic disciplines: Mechanical and Marine Engineering; Civil and Coastal Engineering; Marine Biology and Ocean Science. With 85 academic staff, 1800 undergraduates and 230 postgraduates, it is the largest university department of its kind in Europe.

The School has an international research profile in marine robotics, offshore renewable energy, composites and metallic materials, and coastal engineering, with access to excellent research facilities. The University's GBP 19M marine building, which opened in 2012, houses exceptional marine testing facilities within the state of the art wave tanks and a new full mission ship bridge simulator. The University also operates a High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster to support numerical modelling and CFD applications. These facilities are further to others within the School and Faculty that include the Advanced Composites Manufacturing Centre, the Electron Microscopy Centre, and the new Marine Station development at Coxside. Engineering research within the School is concentrated under the Centre for Advanced Engineering Systems and Interactions (CAESI) and includes the following research groups: Marine and Industrial Dynamic Analysis (MIDAS), Materials and Structures, and Composite Engineering.

Among the school's accredited undergraduate programmes are BSc, BEng and MEng honours degrees in Marine Technology and Mechanical Engineering and MSc programmes in Marine Renewable Energy. The School is now looking to appoint a talented academic to join the multidisciplinary MIDAS Research Group. You will also be expected to contribute to teaching control systems engineering at undergraduate and postgraduate level across the range of mechanical/marine engineering programmes.

You will be able to demonstrate an ability to identify and lead research into original areas of enquiry, and to enhance and complement the present research expertise, which ranges across artificial intelligence, advanced control systems engineering theory, multi-sensor data fusion, industrial dynamics, autonomous marine robots, integrated navigation guidance and control systems and marine renewable energy. At Associate Professor (Reader) level, you will have a track record of attracting research funding and at Lecturer level you will exhibit strong potential to develop your research career. You will have a track record of being able to deliver internationally esteemed research output evidenced through publication and other indicators. You will be joining a growing and enthusiastic team of researchers working in the South West of the UK.

Applications are invited from professional engineers and/or experienced HE lecturers, who can demonstrate a commitment and enthusiasm for innovation in higher education.
