Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering
Are you an academic looking for an innovative and successful university to take your next step? At NTU, we recognise that our greatest strengths lie in the energy, expertise, and experience that our colleagues bring. Thanks to our £421million investment in estates and equipment across our three campuses since 2003/4, we deliver an inspirational learning environment for both staff and students. Our research facilities allow us to shape lives and society, which is central to our mission and achievements of our aims.
2017 has been a year full of prizes, publicity and recognition for the NTU community, culminating in our receipt of the prestigious University of the Year award. Along the way, we’ve recorded some of the highest student satisfaction levels in the country in the 2017 National Student Survey, and achieved the TEF gold standard for the quality of our teaching.
An opportunity has arisen for an individual to join a committed and enthusiastic Civil Engineering Team within the School of Architecture, Design & the Built Environment. The Civil Engineering Subject Area has an excellent reputation in relation to graduate employment through the delivery of strong vocational professionally accredited courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The post holder will be required to further enhance this reputation and to help further develop its research offering.
The role will primarily focus on teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level within the civil engineering subject area whilst also contributing to the development of subject area in general. Candidates will be expected to offer knowledge and skills relevant to the wide civil engineering, design and construction fields but need to demonstrate specific ability and expertise in the teaching and assessment of Fluid Mechanics / Hydrology supplemented by two of the following subject areas:- Engineering Materials, Geotechnical Engineering, Construction Management / Practice and/or CAD/BIM.
You will have a degree in Civil Engineering or a closely related discipline together with proven industry and/or Higher Education teaching experience in Civil Engineering. It is also desirable that you will be an Incorporated or Chartered member of a relevant professional body.
The Civil Engineering courses at NTU have a strong emphasis on student engagement, practical projects and employability, as borne out by recent NSS Survey and DHLE results. So whilst past teaching and research experience is desirable, the more general ability to communicate effectively, enthuse and motivate students, and further develop the overall student learning experience is seen as vitally important.
For an informal discussion or if you have any specific queries in relation to this position, please contact Dr Mark Davison, Head of Civil Engineering on +44 (0)115 8482121, or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
