The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering is currently recruiting for an academic in Robotics Engineering at Lecturer (Assistant Professor) or Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) level. This post is part of the University’s investment in its expanding multi-disciplinary robotics research and will contribute to our new MEng Robotics Engineering and MSc Robotics and Autonomous Systems, see http://www.bath.ac.uk/departments/department-of-electronic-electrical-engineering/.
The Department has a strong record in both research and teaching and close collaborations with industry. 91% of its research activity was graded as either world-leading or internationally excellent in the Research Excellence Framework 2014 and it is consistently very highly placed in the National Student Survey, for example 95.76% Overall Satisfaction in NSS 2017, ranked 4th in the UK.
Bath has a compact, single-site campus that facilitates multi-disciplinary research. The post-holder will join a successful and expanding department. New Lecturers benefit from the peer support of a large group of Early Career Researchers, in additional to a formal development and mentoring programme. The University of Bath is based in an attractive campus on the edge of the World Heritage City of Bath and offers the lifestyle advantages of working and living in one of the most beautiful areas in the country.
Applicants should hold a PhD in a relevant discipline and have a strong or developing track record of publications and research grant capture that is appropriate for the level they are applying for. In addition to a full CV, applicants must state the level they are applying for and provide research and teaching statements of up to two pages each. The research statement should outline plans for research activity and grant capture over the next five years and the fit with existing robotics and autonomous systems research in the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering and across the University, for example in Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science. The teaching statement should detail areas of teaching expertise and range of potential modules in the new programmes.
Prior to drawing up a shortlist, potential candidates may be invited to give a Skype presentation on their research and teaching interests to senior academics from the Department.
We encourage the development of a diverse and inclusive workforce and offer excellent benefits, with options for flexible working. Female applicants are particularly encouraged to apply.
