Tutors are being recruited for a Nanoscale engineering module that is part of the Stage 3 offering in the Engineering and Innovation undergraduate degree programme.

T366 provides students with an up-to-date understanding of a range of nanoscale engineering concepts for them to utilise that knowledge in a variety of ways, including further study and professional development. Nanotechnology is ubiquitous in daily life, and the role of nanotechnology in modern society has grown quickly in the last decade, influencing industries such as micromechanics, electronics, and biotechnology. As a result there are a rapidly increasing number of emerging technologies which contribute solutions to previously inaccessible challenges.

T366 explains some of the challenges and opportunities to which nanotechnology offers solutions, and provides examples of the needs which can be addressed by nanoscale engineering. Three themed areas are explored: structured technologies, which introduces nanofabrication; energy and electronics, which is concerned with applications in these areas; and health, which outlines some of the medical applications addressable through nanoscale engineering.

You should have a degree in a STEM discipline, with relevant experience. Tutors will be required to mark assessments, offer comprehensive feedback and facilitate online tutorials.
