Air Traffic Management and Communication Navigation Surveillance
Cranfield is an exclusively postgraduate university that is a global leader for education and transformational research in technology and management.
A part of the university’s Aerospace Theme, the Centre of Aeronautics (CoA) is one of the world’s largest centres of postgraduate education and research in aeronautics, with over 200 MSc and PhD students. Amongst its programmes, the CoA delivers the world-renown MSc courses in Aerospace Vehicle Design (AVD) and Aerospace Dynamics (AD) which recently celebrated their 70th anniversaries.
We are looking for a candidate who is an enthusiastic teacher and outstanding researcher and who will help maintain and expand further our portfolio.
CoA has a Large Aircraft Flight Simulator (LAFS), an avionics rig and various other flight simulators. Additionally, we are investing in an innovative ATM Laboratory, which will also include the networking of the simulators and possibly other resources across the University. You will contribute to the further development of the ATM Laboratory and to the establishment of the Cranfield Global Research Airport, and in particular the new £67 million Digital Aviation Research and Technology Centre (DARTeC) which will be built at Cranfield University by 2020 to spearhead the UK’s research into digital aviation technology.
You will have a PhD in an Air Traffic Management related subject. Postgraduate research experience is required in at least one of the following fields: air traffic management; complex (transportation) systems; agent based programing; systems engineering. Industrial and direct experience of practical ATM would be a distinct advantage.
In addition to high quality research you will be expected to contribute to the AVD course (Avionics option) and to its management. The aim is to grow the ATM/CNS content, leading to possibly a separate ATM option and bespoke short courses.
If appointed at Senior Lecturer level you must be a nationally recognised thought leader with extensive research and development experience. Experience in winning research grants and managing staff, together with a significant publication track record is also required.
