We wish to appoint two University Lecturers/University Senior Lecturers to join the Department of Engineering's Civil Engineering Division. Civil Engineering is central to the Department's aims to benefit society by creating world-leading engineering knowledge that fosters sustainability, prosperity and resilience. The Division will shortly be moving to the new £36 million Civil Engineering Building that will house both the Civil Engineering Division and the UKCRIC National Research Facility for Infrastructure Sensing

We are seeking candidates with an excellent track record of research within Civil Engineering. The Civil Engineering Division at Cambridge has a world-leading reputation for Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Smart Infrastructure, Sustainable Development and Construction Engineering and Technology. The successful candidates are expected to strengthen this reputation and lead internationally distinctive research agendas. This could cover advanced structural engineering, soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering, design, infrastructure sensing and informatics, water engineering or next generation construction techniques and processes. Infrastructure resilience, smart infrastructure and material innovation, modelling infrastructure data and learning from infrastructure data, efficiency and reuse, are examples of cross-cutting themes. However, this list is not exhaustive and excellent candidates who can articulate a strong vision for Civil Engineering research in any area are encouraged to apply. More broadly, they will develop their research interests within the remit of the Department's research theme of Energy, Transport and Urban Infrastructure, producing world-class research commensurate with the Department's international reputation and its top-rank research rating. Responsibilities will include inspirational undergraduate teaching throughout the four-year Engineering course and supervising undergraduate projects and postgraduate students.

The Civil Engineering Division is currently setting up the UKCRIC National Research Facility for Infrastructure Sensing. Whatever research area candidates wish to pursue, we will be interested to hear about how they may be able to engage with infrastructure sensing, interpreted in the widest sense.

The successful candidates will take up their appointments as soon as possible and no later than 1 September 2018.

  • a Curriculum Vitae (CV),
  • a publications list highlighting your top three publications and
  • a statement of professional, teaching and research experience and future research plans within an integrated engineering department (no more than three A4 pages). Please highlight how you would take advantage of interactions with one or more of the internationally-leading Cambridge Civil Engineering Research Groups and Centres listed in the 'Further Information' document for these vacancies, and any likely engagement with infrastructure sensing.

If you upload any additional documents which have not been requested, we will not be able to consider these as part of your application.

The closing date for applications is Friday 27 April 2018. If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the HR Office (hr-office@eng.cam.ac.uk, +44 (0) 1223 332615).

The interviewing panel will meet soon after the closing date and agree a procedure for short-listing candidates who will be invited to visit the Department, give a short seminar/lecture and attend a formal interview. This process may include soliciting references before a final short-list is agreed.

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Simon Guest (e-mail: sdg@eng.cam.ac.uk)
