This post will focus on teaching and supporting students on BEng/MEng and other Masters level programmes in Mechanical, Automotive and Aerospace Engineering. Particular teaching specialisms we are looking for include one or more of operations management, project management, business models, innovation and/or enterprise. A knowledge and experience of manufacturing would be an advantage. Current areas of research strength in the department include engineering modelling and simulation, machine vision, and robotics. There are opportunities to work with industry on knowledge exchange projects.

You will normally be expected to have a PhD or about to complete a PhD in Engineering Management, Business Administration or a relevant engineering discipline. A teaching qualification/HEA Fellowship is desirable, but at least some experience of, and enthusiasm for, teaching in higher education is essential. Experience of working in or collaborating with industry is desirable.

You will be joining a growing and ambitious department that values teaching and learning very highly. We are looking for a confident and reflective teacher willing to adapt their style and delivery to the needs of different audiences and committed to providing a supportive learning environment. The department has a national reputation for the innovative use of technology to enhance learning and assessment and we would welcome individuals capable of developing this reputation further. You will have the opportunity to contribute to developing the curriculum. UWE graduates already have a high rate of graduate employment but we are aiming to take this even higher through greater interaction between industry, research and education – you can be part of this journey.

You will work in an environment where talent and career aspirations are nurtured and supported. Applicants who are at the beginning of their academic career will be supported to become excellent teachers by undertaking the Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (or if less than 0.6FTE) the Introduction to Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

This post is available on a job share basis for applicants wishing to work part time.
