University Lecturer in Structural Engineering

We wish to appoint a University Lecturer in Structural Engineering to join the University of Cambridge, Department of Engineering's Civil Engineering Division. This is a linked post offered in association with Homerton College and the successful applicant will be elected to a Fellowship of that College.

Civil Engineering is central to the Department's aims to benefit society by creating world-leading engineering knowledge that fosters sustainability, prosperity and resilience. A new £36 million Civil Engineering Building to house our Civil Engineering Division and the new UKCRIC National Research Facility for Infrastructure Sensing are indicative of the University's and UK Government's commitment to Civil Engineering.

Cambridge's Civil Engineering Division has a world-leading reputation for Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Smart Infrastructure in Construction, Sustainable Development and Construction Engineering and Technology. The successful candidate is expected to strengthen this reputation and lead an internationally distinctive research agenda within Structural Engineering. This could include advanced structural engineering within cross-cutting themes such as infrastructure resilience, structural and material efficiency, and smart infrastructure. However, this list is not exhaustive and excellent candidates who can articulate a strong vision for structural engineering research in any area are encouraged to apply.

The successful applicant will also contribute and champion core structural engineering teaching. Structures is central to the general engineering undergraduate course at Cambridge, and the post-holder will help to maintain and develop our reputation for excellent teaching. The association with Homerton offers additional opportunities for pedagogical innovation where the post-holder will play a key role in selecting, mentoring, teaching and providing academic guidance for Homerton College engineering students.
