The University of Lincoln was awarded HEFCE Strategic Development Funding to establish a new School of Engineering at its Brayford Campus in the centre of Lincoln in 2009. This is a ground-breaking initiative, in collaboration with Siemens and other employers in the engineering sector that seeks to develop engineering education for the 21st century. The School combines Mechanical, Electrical and Mechatronics Engineering and offers undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees as well as conducting research, knowledge transfer and employer engagement.
Engineering at Lincoln is research focused, spanning two strategic thrust areas: Industrial Digitalisation and System Intelligence, and Sustainable Energy and Power Systems. We have funded research programmes with a diverse portfolio of UK and International companies and funding bodies, in areas ranging from gas turbine technology to bio engineering. Current projects include remote monitoring and fault diagnosis in gas turbines; intelligent vehicle control; laser techniques in materials and manufacturing; renewable energy; biofuel development; advanced combustion; intelligent control of industrial refrigeration systems; wireless sensor networks for agri-tech.
We are now looking for a new academic to join our team, to support the growth of our research in the area of Sustainable Energy Engineering. We are particularly interested to hear from candidates with research expertise focused around green energy and the development and/or combustion of alternative fuels, such as Hydrogen, Ammonia and biofuels, with substantial experiences on laser diagnostics to flows and combustion and/or advanced numerical simulation, and also with teaching expertise in Computational Fluid Dynamics.
This is a great opportunity for the right candidate to further develop their research and teaching career in a rewarding and dynamic environment, with access to excellent facilities and strong industry links.
