Role Description

The Energy and Power theme at Cranfield University has a long and successful history of delivering cutting edge applied research for government and industrial clients. Our research activities are extensive and growing, in line with the transition of the energy and power sectors to new business models.

After a period of strategic evaluation and reorganisation, we are now into growth mode and are seeking to recruit a Lecturer in Marine Renewable Energy systems, with an emphasis on mechanical engineering. This new role will enhance our existing skills in the area and broaden our depth of expertise, and you will be part of an energetic team that has high ambitions to be world leading across this field.

We are therefore looking for a high energy and committed individual who has a growing reputation within their academic field for excellence and innovative thinking. You will have a publication history relevant to the Marine Renewables sector, and the ability and desire to expand that list and drive your way to the front of your area of specialization. You will be ambitious for success as an academic, with outstanding ability to match that desire. We expect you will be able to demonstrate a keen understanding and importantly a passion in your subject area, for both research and teaching. That enthusiasm will manifest as a commitment to ensuring an exceptional student experience at the post graduate level, and a keen desire to secure research funding which allows your ever increasing research portfolio to grow and impress.

You will have a PhD in Marine Engineering, Renewable Energy, or a mechanically focussed area pertinent to the subject. You may already be a lecturer with an established track record, or an impressive post-doctoral researcher with suitable experience to assume a lectureship role. Candidates with significant Wind Energy experience would be particularly well placed for this role, but given the scope of the subject area this is not a definitive requirement and other specializations will be considered.

For an informal discussion, please contact Professor Phil Hart, Professor and Director of Energy and Power, on (T); +44 (0)1234 758249 or (E); P.R.Hart@cranfield.ac.uk.

At Cranfield, we value Diversity and Inclusion, and aim to create and maintain a culture in which everyone can work and study together harmoniously with dignity and respect and realise their full potential. We actively consider flexible working options such as part-time, compressed or flexible hours and/or an element of homeworking, and commit to exploring the possibilities for each role.
