The College of Engineering at Swansea University has undergone a very significant period of transformative growth and development over the past five years which has included doubling student numbers while increasing quality, raising our international research profile and moving to a brand new purpose built campus in 2015. The newly built Bay Campus is part of a £450 million development project at Swansea University and houses the academic areas of College of Engineering and School of Management as well as offering a wide range of brand new teaching spaces, student accommodation and facilities. The College of Engineering buildings comprise of nearly 30,000 m2 of purpose built facilities including £100M investment in facilities.
The development and expansion of the College is continuing under its Head, Professor Stephen Brown, and the College is currently advertising for a number of new academic positions in a wide range of areas and are seeking applicants who would like to be part of our stimulating and collegiate academic environment.
The College of Engineering is ranked 10th in the UK for the combined score in research quality across the Engineering disciplines (REF 2014). Our research environment was ranked 2nd (behind Cambridge) in the UK with 94% of research produced by our academic staff being of World-Leading (4*) or Internationally Excellent (3*) quality. The College is also ranked 10th in the UK in the Times Good University Guide (General Engineering).
This post is one of 19 new academic posts in place for the 2016/17 academic year. For this position, the College is seeking someone to work within the IDEAS (inter-disciplinary engineering) research group and to also link to the E-BASE cross-discipline research initiative (Engineering in Sports and Exercise). The IDEAS Group has a strong international reputation in biological analysis, bringing systems engineering and physics approaches to the study of biological cell populations. Its work on cell population analysis has led to a number of major publications in the last few years in Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Methods and Nature Communications. The group is now seeking to translate its expertise in population analysis to application in human exercise and activity in collaboration with the Sports Science department within the college. The post holder will be expected to play a key role in this new activity, being involved in the research led by Professor Huw Summers, Professor Paul Rees and Professor Gareth Stratton.
The post holder will be expected to contribute to teaching across the Medical Engineering Portfolio in the College. They will also support the development of core mathematical skills within Medical Engineering and Sports and Exercise Science degree programmes.
Applicants for these academic positions should provide recent evidence of an ability to deliver high quality and innovative teaching and to communicate their subject to an academic and student audience is essential.
