Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering (Geotechnics)
Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for the post of Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering. The University of Wolverhampton is making a major strategic investment of £100M to establish a dedicated campus with new facilities for the School of Architecture and Built Environment on a 12 acre city centre brownfield regeneration site as part of the City of Wolverhampton canal-side redevelopment. The School of Architecture and Built Environment is one of five Schools forming the Faculty of Science and Engineering, and is based in the city centre of Wolverhampton. With excellent industrial links, active research programmes and professionally accredited courses, the School is committed to further growing its existing research and consultancy provision. We have seen an increase in our Civil Engineering student population and are in the process of increasing these provisions. You will support the teaching provisions within Civil Engineering with a particular emphasis on Geotechnical Engineering.
Due to the highly student-focussed nature of our activities, you will be expected to demonstrate enthusiasm for teaching and to cooperate wholeheartedly with other staff in the School in their wide-ranging activities. Involvement in professional activities as well as contributing to recruitment, marketing and business activities within the School will be expected.
You should ideally have a doctorate in Civil Engineering (or equivalent) or related area, relevant industrial experience will also be considered. The University of Wolverhampton operates a widening participation policy and as such you should be able to demonstrate that you can develop and maintain empathy and a good rapport with students. The post has four key performance areas; teaching, research, new course development and external income activities. A proven familiarity with recent developments in one of the areas within Civil Engineering, as well as the ability to work flexibly in a team environment are essential qualities. The generation of research outputs is expected to build upon the successes the School have had in previous research submissions and activities, as well as contributing to recruitment, marketing, transnational education and business activities within the School. A well-established research record would be a distinct advantage, as would experience of new course development as the School implements its expansion plans.
