Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Spacecraft Engineering

The Department of Aeronautics wishes to make an academic appointment in the area of Spacecraft Engineering (including Robotics related to space applications). The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic teacher and outstanding researcher who will help maintain our high levels of scholarship and research.  In the recent REF 2014 exercise, 46% of the department’s research was defined as “world leading”.

The department is very active in a range of research aimed at developing and applying theoretical, computational and experimental techniques to address the most challenging, fundamental problems in Aeronautics science and technology with the aim of reducing emission, noise and weight of next generation of aircraft.  Recently, the department has initiated the establishment of a research network within the College focused on the theme of Green Aviation. The department is now intending to further grow its expertise in space research.

The successful applicant will have a strong research reputation in one or more of the following space related fields:

  *   advanced spacecraft subsystems such as propulsion and control systems;
  *   innovative concepts for the design and integration of future space systems; and
  *   multibody spacecraft including space-based manipulators (robotics)

The potential to make milestone contributions is of the greatest importance.

Applicants should hold a PhD (or equivalent) in Engineering, Mathematics or Physics. They should also have an outstanding research record, as demonstrated by their publications, a good track record in securing research grants and contracts and experience of teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level in the Aeronautics field.

Informal enquiries may be made to the Head of Department, Professor M H Aliabadi, Tel: 00 44 (0) 207 594 5077, E-mail: m.h.aliabadi at imperial.ac.uk<mailto:m.h.aliabadi at imperial.ac.uk>
