Job description

An exciting opportunity has become available for academic leaders to become part of the Advanced Systems Group and lead on research in aspects of autonomous systems including sensing, connectivity, security, safety and trust. They will be expected to make a substantial impact on the global academy, society and the University through effective and innovative leadership in research, scholarship, teaching and/or enterprise. The role holder will have a significant and on-going international and national reputation in areas of intelligent and autonomous systems, with an emphasis on trust, resilience, security and safety. They will hold substantive management/leadership roles at Institute level and will contribute to University-level strategic planning processes. We therefore expect the role holder to contribute to the formation and implementation of strategic priorities in the University and to work across disciplinary and structural boundaries in the University where it is appropriate to do so.   

The Institute of Future Transport and Cities (FTC) brings together world class expertise in disciplines across art and design, human factors, engineering, manufacturing, computer systems and business studies to deliver our vision of “safe and sustainable transport solutions fit for the cities of the future”. Covering the full spectrum of land, rail, air and water based transport, we address the whole innovation chain from design, materials, advanced manufacturing, systems and supply chain as well as the business environment. The Institute builds on some of our existing successful strategic partnerships with organisations such as Unipart, Horiba-MIRA and FEV.
