The Role

This role will be allocated to our Civil & Transportation Engineering Subject Group. The successful candidate will contribute to teaching and research in the areas of Surveying, Building Information Modelling and Structural Design.

You will contribute to the University's objective of growing our academic reputation for research-informed student learning. An ability to drive research projects forward and to generate high quality outputs is important.
