Look to the future with a world-renowned University that will champion your most ambitious academic interests. Join our team, show us how to think even bigger and we’ll help you explore what you are capable of, and inspire future generations to exceed their expectations.

The University of Southampton welcomes applications for two lecturer or associate professor positions in engineering in areas related to energy. You will strengthen our thriving culture within the triple helix strategy of the University, which emphasises cross-fertilisation between research, education and enterprise. Our community is built on interdisciplinary collaboration, which has inspired these split posts between Chemical Engineering (School of Chemistry) and Mechanical Engineering (School of Engineering).

Southampton is in the top 1% of world universities and a top 15 UK research-intensive university. We also inspire thousands of students every year to explore their strengths and forge life-changing discoveries, we open up a wealth of opportunities for the most inquisitive minds. Join us, and you’ll have the scope to create your own opportunities.

About the role

We're seeking individuals with interests in electrochemical energy technologies, that would fit well with our strength in the Electrochemistry and Energy Technology groups, and we seek applicants with interests within either group’s remit.

You'll be predominantly based in the home School (0.8 FTE) that is most aligned to your experience, but will also have a partial role (0.2 FTE) in the second School to facilitate building/maintaining an internationally recognised research programme.

The successful applicant will demonstrate:

  • Clear plans to build an ambitious independent research programme.
  • Potential to raise external research funding (research councils, EU, charities and industry).
  • An ability to inspire and support both colleagues and students on our Chemical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering programmes.
  • Commitment to improving equality, diversity and inclusion.

What we can offer you

  • A collegiate research-led community.
  • A highly integrated research environment.
  • A collaborative and enterprising culture.
  • Sector-leading high performance computing where needed.
  • A generous benefits package including a contributory pension scheme, competitive holiday allowance, subsidised health and fitness facilities, a cycle-to-work scheme and a range of discounts.

The University values diversity and equality, and we actively encourage applications from under-represented groups. We are holders of the Race Equality Charter Bronze Award 2022, and institutional and departmental Athena SWAN silver awards. We recognise that employees may need working patterns that fit with caring responsibilities. Due consideration will be given to applicants who have had career breaks for maternity, paternity or adoption leave, disability or illness. 

Interviews will take place in person in Southampton, which is an hour from central London by train and has an international airport alongside beautiful surroundings on the south coast and in the New Forest. Find out more about the University and city here.

If you need advice about your suitability, you are encouraged to contact the Head of Chemistry, Professor Andrew Hector, or the Head of Mechanical Engineering, Professor Richard Wills, for further details.

Along with your application please submit your academic CV with a covering letter that provides details of your current and future research plans and what you feel you and your research vision will bring to our School.
