Role Description

Technology for the green economy – this academic position is now available within our Energy and Power Theme.

Do you want to be at the forefront of delivering a sustainable energy future for our communities and for the environment? 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. Energy and Power is one of eight major themes at Cranfield University.  We are advancing the potential solutions in energy and power to ensure our future needs are met.

We continually engage with business and influence industrial and academic design-thinking practices to improve their capabilities to translate insights into commercially successful outcomes.

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. Energy and Power areas are (select one or more from this list during application):

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Process Engineering
  • Materials Science or Bioengineering
  • Industrial or Production Engineering
  • Renewable Energy Engineering

Talented researchers and academics, who are enthusiastic about research in any of the above mentioned specialist areas, have a PhD relevant to one of these areas, want to make a difference with your industry partners, and are keen to be part of a dynamic and professional team, are invited to apply.

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.

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 the leading international peer-reviewed journals of your respective field.  You will be expected to develop and build long term partnership relationships with industry, science programmes and professional bodies.

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.
