Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Water Engineering, Department of Civil and Structural Engineering, The University of Sheffield, UK
This is an exciting opportunity for a highly able, enthusiastic, versatile and well-motivated individual to join the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering at the University of Sheffield.  Whilst we welcome applications from candidates in all areas of fundamental or applied hydraulics/water engineering, we are particularly seeking applicants whose skills complement our existing strengths in urban drainage, potable water, groundwater and environmental fluid mechanics.

Applications are invited from individuals with a strong academic record (including a relevant PhD or equivalent) with, ideally, interdisciplinary expertise across fundamental and applied research. The postholder will be expected to teach undergraduate and postgraduate courses, as part of the Civil and Structural Engineering curricula, and must demonstrate strong research potential that will lead to external funding, scholarly publications and collaborations with others, both in the Department and across the University.

Applicants must have completed a PhD (or have equivalent experience) in water engineering or a related field. The potential to teach using a range of appropriate instruction methods, along with the ability to communicate complex theories and problems effectively to undergraduate and postgraduate students, are essential.  Research interests that complement the Department’s existing strengths in water engineering, evidence of high-quality research and innovation in water engineering, and a publication record showing evidence of creativity and research versatility are also essential.  A successful record of obtaining external research income and experience of involvement in the management of grants or contracts is desirable, as well as the ability to mentor and develop junior colleagues in both their research agendas and teaching portfolios.

Applicants should further look at the full details of post (reference UOS018505) in the job section of the University (https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/jobs), where applications should be formally submitted.

This vacancy closes on the University jobs pages on 28 March 2018. To submit your application please click on the "Go to application page" button. Application via email will not be accepted.
