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 Offshore Energy Engineering, with an emphasis on mechanical engineering. These subject areas of the role will span the Offshore Oil and Gas space, and importantly will seek to develop the transition of related skills and techniques into the Offshore Renewables space. 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 Offshore Oil and Gas or Offshore 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 Offshore Engineering, Marine Engineering, Subsea Engineering or a Mechanical Engineering topic closely related to the field. 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. You may alternatively be an experienced and PhD qualified Oil and Gas professional, seeking to move into academia and develop a research portfolio.
