The role

The Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Bristol is looking to recruit a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Applied Control. 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. We are especially keen to recruit candidates who can complement our existing research initiatives - these include applications to existing and potential future air vehicle configurations, both crewed and autonomous. Expertise in experimental/hardware aspects including actuation, sensing and on-board computing would be valuable.

What will I be doing?

• You will be responsible for devising and delivering undergraduate teaching of aerospace control - this could include introductory feedback control and more advanced topics such as modern MIMO or robust control.

• You will conduct research in an associated area, including applying for funding and supervising research students, supported by one of our established research groups.

• You will be presenting your research at international conferences in your field and publishing high quality peer-reviewed journal papers.

• You will be building research collaborations with industry.

• You will support students through our tutorial system and supervising student projects.

• You will contribute to academic administration within the Department and School.

You should apply if:

• You can deliver inspiring teaching in control across all levels of an MEng degree programme

• You can create new knowledge through novel and insightful research and understand how to translate research through to application.

• You can maintain a consistent output of published work and funding applications to support your research.

• Your personal research ambition includes the desire to work collaboratively and support the research of other academics in your research group and beyond.

• You enjoy supporting students to learn and are willing to continually develop your teaching skills within a supportive academic community.

For informal discussion about the post, you are welcome to contact:

• Dr Steve Burrow ( stephen.burrow@bristol.ac.uk ), (Head of Department)

• Professor Mark Lowenberg ( mark.lowenberg@bristol.ac.uk , (Head of Dynamics and Control Research Group)

• Professor Simon Neild ( simon.neild@bristol.ac.uk ), (Head of School)

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.
