Transforming today's technology for tomorrow's world - that's the ethos at Robert Gordon University's School of Engineering. We combine a wide range of expertise in Engineering with purpose built facilities and strong commercial links. We work closely with local, national and international companies to ensure that we continue to provide professional learning that meets the demands of employers. The result is an impressive suite of degree programmes at all levels.
Contributing to the delivery and development of the School’s portfolio of courses, you will also actively engage in research and/or consultancy.
You will need an Engineering related PhD (or have submitted and awaiting an imminent viva) in either mechatronic systems or control/instrumentation systems and it would be highly advantageous if your PhD (in one of the aforementioned areas) has a renewable energy theme. Teaching and research experience in UK Higher Education relevant to the areas of electronic controllers, mechatronics/automation and/or instrumentation technology is very important for this role.
You must be highly motivated with ‘self-starting attributes’ and a ‘can do’ working style. We are seeking someone with a solid underpinning, and demonstrable experience, in a number of the following areas: measurement systems, control techniques, mechatronic/automation engineering and electrical renewable energy systems. A sound awareness of broad analogue & digital electronics is a must. Good research output is also expected and a knowledge of Graduate Apprenticeship schemes is also highly beneficial.
Research in Engineering at RGU is broad based covering many Engineering subjects including; Materials, Flow Modelling, Thermo/Fluids, Monitoring and Maintenance, Membrane Technology, Petroleum Engineering, Renewables and Communications & Autonomous Systems. Further information can be found at -www.rgu.ac.uk/research.
We pride ourselves in having very strong industrial links and most of our research includes industry funding. We aim to continue to improve our research performance as the best modern University, School of Engineering, in Scotland.
Grade 7 Salary Scale: £36,386 – £42,155
Grade 8 Salary Scale: £43,414 – £51,805
Salary on appointment will be dependent upon experience.
Candidates with limited or no prior experience as an academic will be placed on the first point of the Grade 7 scale.
