Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for the post of Springfield Futures 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. The Civil Engineering Department is experiencing rapid growth and plans are in place to develop new courses including an integrated full time Master’s. You will be expected to further develop the curricula in Structures Engineering on the undergraduate and post graduate courses.


The School of Architecture and the Built Environment is an active and thriving subject area within the Faculty with good industrial links, active research outputs and professionally accredited programmes delivered in the UK and overseas. The School is committed to growing its academic provision which centres on architecture, construction, the environment and civil engineering.  This post is a reflection of that growth agenda.  The post has four key performance areas; teaching, research, new course development and external income activities.  Teaching will involve lecturing architectural related modules on the undergraduate and post graduate courses. 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.


You must have a doctorate degree in in Civil Engineering related areas or should be nearing completion. 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. 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, together with relevant professional body qualifications. A well-established research record would be a distinct advantage, as would experience of new course development as the School implements its expansion plans.
