Strathclyde Chancellor's Fellow in Advanced, Remanufacturing and Distributed Manufacturing.
Strathclyde Global Talent Programme
Be bold. Be innovative. Be a 'Strathclyder'
We are the University of Strathclyde. Our vision is bold and ground breaking, placing us amongst the world's leading international technological universities. We are vibrant, dynamic and passionate about solving the challenges facing society and industry through our cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary research, education and knowledge-exchange with global partners.
Through our Strathclyde Global Talent Programme we will recruit up to 60 outstanding academic colleagues - including Strathclyde Chancellor's Fellows - in areas of strategic importance. One area of importance is Advanced, Remanufacturing and Distributed Manufacturing.
This multi-disciplinary research area includes research that addresses major challenges in the key areas of the creation of products, production processes, and associated services through the development and application of leading edge technical and organisational knowledge and expertise. This area of expertise involves new and improved ways to manufacture existing products, and the design and manufacture of new products through the development and adoption of advanced technologies, materials, management systems and processes. It is applicable to a broad range of industrial sectors from aerospace and automotive, to medical devices and food and drink.
Normally appointed at Lecturer level, the Fellowship will last for 5 years during which you will be supported to establish your career as a research leader and achieve rapid career progression. Fellows who meet the criteria for promotion by the end of the 5 year period will be transferred to an open-ended (tenured equivalent) academic appointment. You will also benefit from research portfolio growth, reduced teaching load and administrative duties and a range of support.
You will hold a PhD, have postdoctoral research experience, an emerging high quality publications record and research interests which align with our strategic focus. You must be able to articulate your research vision.
