LocationUnited Kingdom, Dundee
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateSunday, December 09, 2018
The School of Science and Engineering seeks an exceptional candidate to join its
Fluid Mechanics research group based within the Civil Engineering Discipline.
The group’s current research involves theoretical, numerical and experimental
studies on a wide range of problems in environmental, industrial and physical
fluid mechanics, marine hydrodynamics, ocean engineering and marine renewable
energy. The School is seeking to maintain excellence in this area by the
appointment of a Lecturer (at either Grade 7 or Grade 8), and applications are
encouraged especially from researchers working in marine hydrodynamics and ocean
engineering. Applicants with expertise in computational fluid dynamics and/or
advanced numerical modelling techniques as applied to environmental fluid
mechanics are strongly encouraged to apply for this post. A candidate is sought
with a strong track record of research appropriate for their career stage and a
clear research plan that articulates with or expands significantly upon the
group’s current research areas. 

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the development of
research in the area of computational fluid mechanics through the highest
quality publications supported by appropriate external research funding. For
appointments at Grade 8, evidence of independent funding is expected.
The School has recently grown in this area by the addition of a new MSc
programme on Marine Hydrodynamics and Ocean Engineering. The successful
candidate will be expected to contribute significantly to the delivery and
development of this programme and the full range of teaching programmes within
the Civil Engineering Discipline including BEng, MEng and MSc degrees.

The School comprises the Disciplines of Biomedical, Civil, Electronic, and
Mechanical Engineering, Computing, Mathematics, and Physics, as well as the
Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification (CAHID). The School benefits from
superb research infrastructure, substantial opportunities for interdisciplinary
collaboration and the University’s established excellence in delivering
undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses (as demonstrated by impressive
National Student Survey scores). The Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014)
profiles of Civil Engineering, General Engineering (encompassing Physics) and
Mathematics are all 1st in Scotland and in the top 10 in the UK. Computing and
CAHID deliver world leading research with impact.  

The priorities of the successful candidate will include:
•	Developing and conducting externally-funded research projects. 
•	Publishing research in high quality and peer-reviewed journals and other
platforms, as appropriate.
•	Teaching modules in fluid mechanics, computational fluid dynamics and marine
hydrodynamics at undergraduate and taught postgraduate levels. 
•	Developing student skills in environmental fluid mechanics, computational
fluid dynamics and ocean engineering.
•	Supervising students undertaking undergraduate and postgraduate individual
•	Contributing to the School’s academic and pastoral support for undergraduate
and postgraduate students.
•	Developing MSc and/or CPD programmes.
•	Contributing to student recruitment activities within the School at both
undergraduate and taught postgraduate level. 

The School seeks a candidate with:
•	PhD in a relevant subject.
•	Demonstrated ability as a teacher and student mentor.
•	Demonstrated capacity for high-quality research.
•	Excellent communication skills.
•	Excellent team working skills.
•	Enthusiasm, creativity and drive.
•	Ability to provide leadership within research or teaching teams.
•	Ability to work collaboratively with colleagues and to encourage the
commitment of others.
•	An understanding of the future challenges to which industry must adapt and a
vision for how students can be prepared to meet this need.
•	Where relevant, experience of curriculum development.
