Assistant Professor in Control Engineering

Durham, United Kingdom
£45,585 - £54,395 per annum
Closing date
8 Mar 2024

The Department of Engineering at Durham University is currently undergoing a period of strategic growth and now seeks to appoint a talented individual to the role of Assistant Professor in Control Engineering. We welcome applications from outstanding individuals with research and teaching interests in one or more of the Control Engineering specialisations including, but not limited to, Systems Modelling and Prediction for Electronics and Communications, Machine/Deep Learning for/in Control, Cyber Physical Systems and Internet of Things, Network Control, Integration or Intersection of Control, Communications and/or Computing, or other relevant areas of Control. Theoreticians, experimentalists, and modellers are all welcome to apply. The successful candidate will also be involved in research-led teaching in engineering.

This is an exciting opportunity to join an expanding, unified Engineering Department which is recognised as one of the very best in the UK, with a reputation for excellence in teaching, research and employability of our graduates. In the REF2021 exercise, 95% of our Engineering outputs were graded 3* or 4* and the Department is committed to an ethos of research-led education at all levels of our taught programmes. Engineering at Durham University was ranked 5th in The Guardian University Guide 2024, 7th in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023 and 5th in The Complete University Guide 2024. We were ranked 2nd in Engineering behind only Cambridge in a recent Institute for Fiscal Studies report on the difference in graduate earnings by UK university choice. We are a scholarly community that is open, representative and diverse: our commitment to this is expressed through work of the Department's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Group, and our Athena Swan Bronze award.

The Department of Engineering demonstrates significant depth of research excellence across a range of disciplines, with activities that are currently concentrated around three Research Challenge areas: Sustainable Infrastructure, Future Energy Systems and Advanced Materials, Electronics and Communications. Thematically, our research is split into eight Research Nodes which group together our day-to-day activities and expertise, with this role nominally falling into the Communications and THz node. We are particularly proud of the collaborative interdisciplinary nature of our research, which also includes strong industrial partnerships.

We are keen to hear from candidates who have already achieved Chartered Engineer status. As a minimum, if not already professionally qualified, candidates will be expected to demonstrate the ability and desire to become Chartered.
