We are excited to announce we are recruiting for a full-time Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering, to join CFCM and the University of Exeter. Applications close on 16/11/2020.

Formed in June 2020, the Centre for Future Clean Mobility works closely with national and regional businesses to provide support in research and innovation in clean and smart powertrains. We work with international blue-chip companies as much as we work with local SMEs.

Right now we have 8 active projects in clean and smart powertrains and transport, and we’re part of the national Driving the Electric Revolution centres. Before CFCM was formed, we established a strong track record in helping companies innovate, notably working with Supacat on the hybrid ATMP, and with Plymouth Boat Trips on their new electric ferry.

The department of Engineering, led by Prof David Butler, has created a new position as Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering to work with the CFCM on clean propulsion. The new full-time permanent Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering will join CFCM and build on its research and teaching strengths, alongside those of the College as a whole. We’re primarily looking for a researcher with experience in clean mobility, i.e.:

  • design, simulation and optimisation of clean powertrains;
  • energy/power monitoring and management;
  • machine learning and systems integration;
  • hardware in the loop co-simulation;

The ideal candidate will have a track record of delivering impact-driven work, strong connections with industry partners and an enthusiastic approach towards inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary research.

The starting salary will be from £35,845 up to £46,718 on Grade F, depending on qualifications and experience.

The University of Exeter is proud to hold an institutional Athena SWAN Silver Award, which means we are commitment to advancing the careers of women in STEMM employment in higher education and research. We also particularly welcome applications from disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates. Applications close on 16/11/2020.

Apply here.
