UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH

College of Science and Engineering

Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering (2 posts) (ref 043219) 

The University of Edinburgh is one of the world’s top 25 institutions of Higher Education and provides exceptional research, teaching, and living environments. The School of Engineering comprises more than 125 academic staff, 1,700 undergraduate students, and 640 postgraduate students. We carry out internationally excellent teaching and research, attracting high-calibre students and an excellent level of research funding. We are now investing to strengthen and deepen our coverage of thermofluid engineering: 

The successful candidates will be internationally prominent in Mechanical Engineering (or will demonstrate strong potential to be so). The post-holders will undertake teaching duties, carry out fundamental and applied research, and be expected to attract significant external research income. The post-holders will be members of the Research Institute for Multiscale Thermofluids (IMT).  This theme covers multiscale and multiphase fluid systems undergoing heat transfer, including topics such as phase change, air-fuel mixing in combustion systems, high-speed flows, wetting and associated capillary phenomena (e.g. at microfluidic scales).
 
The level of appointment (Lecturer or Senior Lecturer) will be determined by the selection panel.

The culture of the School of Engineering and the University is open and diverse and we are committed to reflecting that in our appointment process.

For informal discussion, potential candidates are invited to contact the Head of School, Prof. Hugh McCann at +44 (0)131 650 5566, or HoS.Eng@ed.ac.uk or the Head of the Institute for Multiscale Thermofluids, Prof Mark Linne, at +44 131 651 7903, mark.linne@ed.ac.uk or Director of Discipline for Mechanical Engineering, Prof Conchúr Ó Brádaigh, at +44 131 650 8708, c.obradaigh@ed.ac.uk.
