Job description :

This year has seen Coventry University cement its status as the country's top modern University, with a rise in the Guardian University Guide 2018 to 12th spot, the highest ever placing for a modern university. We continue to build on our reputation from other key league tables, notably last month's Complete University Guide where we were ranked top new university, and the Times Higher Education world rankings - the latter naming Coventry University as one of the world's top institutions under 50 years old.

The Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing at Coventry University is one of the largest in the UK. Consisting in three schools and four research centres, it is nationally and internationally renowned as a centre of innovation for its teaching, learning and research.

The Faculty is looking for a leader to develop a robust multi-disciplinary team with a view to the developing world-leading research in the area of Electrification of Automotive Powertrains with strong industrial links. 
The post is ideal for an experienced academic with an active research portfolio and strong industrial connections, but due consideration will be given to an industrial specialist from the field of Automotive Powertrain Development.

Staff and facilities at your disposal include:

  • State of the art powertrain testing facilities at the university and industrial partners
  • Industry standard 0D, 1D- and 3D-simulation software and calibrated simulation models
  • Access to an extensive benchmarking database for automotive powertrains
  • A team of technically capable staff with experience power electronics, electric machine diagnostics, powertrain systems modelling and more.

For an informal chat about the role, please call the Dean's Office on 024 7765 8673 to make a telephone appointment with our Pro-Vice-Chancellor Professor Michael Fitzpatrick or the Director of the Centre for Low-Carbon Propulsion Systems, Hartwig Busch.
