Competitive Salary and Benefits  

Guardian University of the Year 2019; Times and Sunday Times Modern University of the Year 2018; THE 2017 University of the Year; these are just some of the accolades bestowed upon Nottingham Trent University.  

We are focused on ‘Creating the University of the Future’, transforming the lives of our students and, through them, the world in which we live. To us, research is about more than writing papers and proposing new ideas. By daring to think differently, we’re disrupting the research landscape and finding the answers to the questions that really matter.  

Almost 40% of global energy CO2 emissions stem from the construction or use of buildings and in the UK, the heating of domestic households represents 37% of all heat emissions. To focus our deep research experience in this area the University’s School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment (ADBE) has created a new Centre of Excellence in Low Carbon Construction and Retrofit.  

We are seeking to appoint a committed and passionate academic with a background in construction management, retrofit or a related discipline. You will be an outstanding leader and team player with a positive attitude and vision to help build a unique forward-looking Centre encompassing research, skills, and consultancy to position ADBE as the leading regional provider of low carbon skills and retrofit education.

If you would like to contribute your expertise, creativity and energy to this wonderful institution and exciting new centre full details can be found at
