The Role

The School of Civil Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bristol is committed to providing the highest level of education to Engineers of tomorrow. An essential part of this learning experience is understanding the management responsibilities of the profession.

The Department of Aerospace Engineering is now looking to enhance their capability in providing up to date and relevant education in this area through provision of stimulating and authentic learning environments. We are thus looking for someone who can provide a balance of academic and commercial expertise to teach the students about links between society, management and engineering and promote this developing environment.

What will I be doing?
  • Preparing and updating learning content in a variety of digital formats to develop the education programme for engineering students to understand the management context of engineering.
  • Be responsible for the delivery and coordination of the relevant units to make sure that all students receive an excellent learning experience.
  • Serve as the first point of contact for undergraduate enquires with regards to relevant engineering management units.
  • Take responsibility of maintaining and enhancing academic standards in the relevant units to ensure that academic outcomes are reflective of student learning.
  • Review and reflect on the feedback received for the relevant units and contribute to redesign and redevelopment of these.

You should apply if:
  • You are excited about stretching the imagination of undergraduate engineers about the profession!
  • You have domain expertise in system-level engineering management including global working practices, teamwork, and remote project delivery.
  • You value working within a diverse and multi-cultural team and prepared to serve as a role model in inclusive workplace behaviours.
  • You understand the nature of the challenges of teaching practice-based knowledge in a highly academic setting.
  • You can build strong, effective relationships with a range of stakeholders within and beyond the University.
  • You have excellent communication skills and can clearly articulate verbally and in writing.
  • You are someone who can get up to speed quickly, thrives on digesting lots of information, is mindful of competing priorities, and can drive activity forward in a sustainable manner.

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.
