Role Description

We are looking to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced individual to design and deliver teaching on our incident and accident investigation courses (MSc modules and CPD short courses).

About the Role

We would expect a successful applicant to be able to demonstrate an appropriate balance of industrial experience (for example, as an air safety investigator or safety manager within an investigation agency, operator or manufacturer) and teaching ability.

Applications from those with a practitioner background are actively encouraged. Our expectation is that the candidate will be able to demonstrate domain expertise and experience equivalent to that of a higher degree (Masters or Doctoral degree).

About You

Whilst a track record of academic research is not necessarily a requirement for this role, those applicants who are on a research track will be expected to be able to demonstrate a record of publications in relevant journals. At the senior lecturer level, a research-active applicant would need to demonstrate sustained performance in winning research funding, successfully supervising PhD candidates and publishing in relevant journals.

A Senior Lecturer would also be expected to play an active ambassadorial role for the University which may include presenting or chairing sessions at conferences or international symposia; being utilised as an expert in their field, and in the development of new business / research opportunities. 

Cranfield University is internationally renowned for its work in aviation safety, aircraft accident & incident investigation and increasingly the transfer of that knowledge into other sectors such as rail, marine, construction and healthcare.
