Are you enthusiastic about transferring your expertise to the next generation and want to accelerate your research career through developing innovative solutions in collaboration with industry and government?

If so, come and join the Cranfield community. Cranfield is an exclusively postgraduate university that is a global leader for education and transformational research in technology and management. Our people are our most valuable resource and everyone has a role to play in shaping the future of our university, developing our learners, and transforming the businesses we work with. We are re-invigorating our postgraduate curricula in water, energy and power, and environment and agrifood and we seek talented and business-engaged academics to join our expert, applied teams. 

Cranfield University, recognised for its high quality, innovative, business-engaged research and renowned academic thought leaders, is investing in the future and looking to attract the best academic talents in the world. Cranfield has been a leading provider of science and education for the global water sector for over 40 years and has an international reputation for its transformational research and teaching. Our contributions span the science, engineering and management of water in municipal, industrial and natural environments. 

Our academic and research staff, including scientists, engineers, technologists, policy specialists and social scientists, are engaged in delivering postgraduate teaching, research, consultancy and training in a national and international arena. As part of our pursuit of excellence, we are recruiting for outstanding academic talent to support our long-term plans and strengthen critical mass in our niche areas of research. Specialist areas that we are particularly interested to receive applications in include (select one or more from this list during application):

  • Water Engineering
  • Water Treatment
  • Public Health Engineering
  • Monitoring and Control

Our equal opportunities and diversity monitoring has shown that that women and minority ethnic groups are currently underrepresented within the university and so we actively encourage applications from eligible candidates from these groups.

Talented researchers and academics with the personal drive to deliver high quality science in any of the above mentioned specialist areas, have a relevant PhD, and are keen to be part of a dynamic and professional team are invited to apply. You will be able to demonstrate a promising track-record of early achievements appropriate to your research area and career stage including significant publications (as main author) in leading international peer-reviewed journals.
