Job description

Job summary

 

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London is seeking to appoint a lecturer in Fluid-Structure Interaction. This is an area of national importance with many research challenges and opportunities. The successful candidate will become a member of the Fluid Mechanics Section and will be expected to undertake internationally leading research in fluid mechanics; to build a research group consistent with a developing international reputation; and to undertake teaching (both under-graduate and post-graduate) of the highest standard.  

The appointee will be encouraged to take full advantage of the extensive laboratory facilities that are housed within the Civil Engineering Department on Imperial’s South Kensington campus. They will also play a role in the continued development of our new MSc course entitled: Engineering Fluid Mechanics for the Offshore, Coastal and Built Environments.

This is a full-time, open ended post.

Duties and responsibilities

 

You will be expected to plan, resource and direct an original and high-quality research programme in one or more aspects of fluid-structure interaction. There should be a strong scientific element to the work, with an emphasis on the fluid mechanics of the interaction processes.

You will have the capability to carry out research projects alone (supervising research students/assistants) and will also be expected to develop collaborative projects, particularly with other members of the Department/College, to tackle broader engineering challenges. 

You will also be expected to contribute to teaching on both our Undergraduate course in Civil Engineering and our new MSc course in Engineering Fluid Mechanics for the Offshore, Coastal and Built Environments. The teaching component will involve a significant component of engineering design, together with involvement in UG and MSc research projects. 

Essential requirements

 

The successful candidate will need to demonstrate that they meet the criteria listed below:

    • PhD (or equivalent) in a subject relevant to fluid-structure interactions.

    • A track record of high quality research activity and publishing technical papers in leading international peer-reviewed journals.

    • The appropriate technical skills to perform cutting edge and rigorous research in an aspect of fluid-structure interaction.  

    • The vision and imagination to develop a series of good ideas for funded research projects.

    • The ability to coordinate, organise, lead and inspire the work of others, and to seek external funding, from Research Councils, Government, EU and Industry.

    • The ability to interact positively with other academics, and to communicate effectively, especially in respect of teaching.

    • The necessary background to teach across the many areas of civil engineering fluid mechanics and, specifically, to teach topics appropriate to fluid loading and fluid-structure interaction.

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.
