Lecturer in Digital Manufacturing

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bristol is engaging positively with the growing technology trends of Smart Manufacturing and Digital Engineering. We are looking to expand our capabilities in teaching and research in these fields. The Department is a part of the School of Civil, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, renowned for delivering both high quality teaching and world-class research; attracting the highest calibre of students and providing an intellectually stimulating environment for academic staff.

You will be responsible for developing and delivering teaching for our new Engineering with Management MSc programme, in particular on the Intelligent Manufacturing pathway. This pathway of engineering management explores the challenges in close integration between information technology and manufacturing resources and prepares the graduates for managing intelligent factories that are enabled by the Internet of Things, Digital Twins and Data-Driven production platforms. Such factories, sometimes designated Industry 4.0 (to indicate they herald the fourth industrial revolution) encompass new processes, new resources and new approaches to management and control. You will carry out research in a related area to complement our existing research initiatives in digital design and manufacturing.

In appendix to your application cover letter, please include a short plan for your current research and the future direction that you wish to pursue and how it would link and extend the research capabilities at Bristol. A teaching portfolio documenting your experience and ideas for novel and exciting teaching and how they could fit in the environment at Bristol should also accompany your application cover letter.

We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.
