Departmental Lecturer in Civil Engineering Fluid Mechanics, University of Oxford, UK

We are seeking a full-time Departmental Lecturer in Civil Engineering Fluid Mechanics to join the Civil Engineering research group at the Department of Engineering Science (Central Oxford). The post is fixed-term for 5 years from appointment and is associated with St Edmund Hall.

The Civil Engineering Environmental Fluid Mechanics group conducts research across a broad spectrum of topics ranging from flows through porous media, offshore and coastal engineering, and a very extensive programme in Offshore Renewable Energy principally comprising tidal stream and wind energy research. The post holder will contribute to the existing programmes of research in wind and tidal stream energy, as well as develop new research projects and lead independent research, sponsored by research councils and/or industry. You will lecture and teach undergraduate and graduate students and contribute to the teaching, research, and academic administration of the Department. You will be a member of St Edmund Hall, where you will enjoy benefits of membership of the Senior Common Room and contribute to the teaching of Engineering in the college.

You will possess a PhD in a relevant field and additional research experience. Good communication skills and an aptitude for teaching are essential. You should have extensive specialist knowledge in fluid mechanics for Offshore Renewable Energy.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Richard Willden: richard.willden@eng.ox.ac.uk.

In your online application you will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, including a brief statement of research interests (stating how your experience and plans fit with the advertised position), CV and details of two referees.
