Assistant Professor in Multiscale Modelling

Ref: 11619-010
Permanent Position 

The School of Engineering is looking to recruit an exceptional individual to contribute to the research and educational goals of the Warwick Centre for Predictive Modelling (WCPM). WCPM links expertise in multiscale modelling with the development of advanced scientific computing paradigms. This integrative approach enables researchers to work across traditional boundaries to advance fundamental understanding and develop accurate modelling methodologies in support of next generation technologies. 

Applications are invited in all areas of modelling relevant to WCPM but a proven ability to work with multiscale models is essential, as is a willingness to engage with quantification of the uncertainties arising in models. Extensive high performance computing skills, and a strong background and interests in the broad areas of computational mathematics or statistics are desirable. Applicants with interests in materials modelling, fluid dynamics, geotechnics and bioengineering are particularly encouraged. 

Key duties include independent and collaborative research, development of research partnerships with colleagues across the university, supervision of PhD students and post-doctoral fellows and contributing to the teaching needs of the School of Engineering. 

All applicants must include both a Curriculum Vitae and a two-page outline of their plans and intentions for research activities and grant capture over five years. This bespoke plan will be treated in the strictest confidence and with full respect for ownership. This is a mandatory component of our selection process, without which we will be unable to progress your application. 

The University aims to promote work life balance for all employees and the School of Engineering will consider a range of possible flexible working arrangements in order to recruit the best candidate. 

The School of Engineering is committed to the principles of the Athena SWAN Charter which recognises work undertaken to address gender equality, representation and progression for all staff working in an academic environment. The School currently holds the Athena SWAN Bronze award and the University holds an Institutional Silver award.
