Professor/Reader in Risk, Safety and Reliability
Strathclyde Professor/Reader in Risk, Safety and Reliability.
Strathclyde Global Talent Programme
Be bold. Be innovative. Be a 'Strathclyder'
We are the University of Strathclyde. Our vision is bold and ground breaking, placing us amongst the world’s leading international technological universities. We are vibrant, dynamic and passionate about solving the challenges facing society and industry through our cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary research, education and knowledge-exchange with global partners.
Through our Strathclyde Global Talent Programme we will recruit up to 60 outstanding academic colleagues – including Professors / Readers - in areas of strategic importance. One area of importance is Risk, Safety and Reliability.
This multi-disciplinary research area includes research that addresses major challenges in the key areas of Engineered products and systems which are becoming increasingly complex and interconnected, driven by the pursuit of enhanced performance and efficiency through all life phases. This increased complexity continuously challenges conventional thinking relating to risk, safety and reliability. This in turn demands the development and integration of advanced approaches to identify, evaluate and mitigate against single and systemic failure modes. Solutions to these challenges will involve for example the integration of intelligent agent based systems, Bayesian belief networks, and genetic optimisation to create a holistic and generalizable toolset.
Our Professors and Readers enjoy a range of benefits, including a generous remuneration package; notable additional financial and non-financial benefits; excellent start-up support; initially reduced teaching and management load; and regular career review, with the opportunity to receive additional remuneration in recognition of extraordinary contribution.
You will be:
- Leading independent and internationally recognised research portfolio in an area of our strategic focus;
- Providing academic leadership to ensure a step-change in performance;
- Publishing in leading international journals;
- Pursuing funding opportunities from both UK and international sources;
- Taking a lead role in ensuring teaching and learning excellence; and
- Leading on developing collaborative and productive links with national and international partners in academia, business, industry and government.
