Are you an early career academic or more established with a passion for engineering economics and management? Are you looking to join an academic team where you can build your profile and experience? Then the University of Southampton’s Department of Civil, Maritime and Environmental Engineering is the ideal place to make your mark. We have brand new, world-class facilities and a vibrant 50-strong departmental academic community. Civil Engineering at Southampton was ranked #1 and #2 in the UK this year by the Guardian and the Times Good University Guides respectively. The Faculty of Engineering & Physical Sciences was ranked top in research power in both General Engineering and Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF) in 2014.
Within this environment you will be supported to further develop your academic career and play a pivotal role in expanding educational and research strengths across engineering, particularly in transportation, while delivering a range of teaching and assessment across the School of Engineering including construction management and systems engineering. There are many opportunities for external engagement and gaining leadership experience.
This role is offered on a full-time, permanent basis.
To make the most of this exciting role, you will need a PhD (or equivalent professional qualifications and experience) in project management/economics related to engineering, along with a track-record of published research. You’ll have a proven ability to develop innovative research proposals and attract research funding. Your past involvement in the development and delivery of teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level will ideally be matched by a recognised Higher Education teaching qualification. Highly organised, with strong communication skills, you’ll be ready to manage and motivate others.
