The University of Surrey is an international university with a world-class teaching and research profile and an enterprising spirit. Inventive and forward thinking, our heritage shows a recurring theme of doing things differently – and achieving notable results. For example, we have won four Queen’s Anniversary Prizes and were awarded Gold for our Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) submission. Our research is focused on things that matter to the world and our education is world-class. We take a modern approach to blended working, with flexibility around whether our teams work from home or from our beautiful campus here on Stag Hill, in the Surry town of Guildford. Surrey is a place where your work-life balance matters, you can bring your whole self to work, and you can believe in what you do.
The School of Mechanical Engineering Sciences is home to around 40 academic members of staff, 750 undergraduate students and 70 doctoral students, as well as 40 research, technical and administrative staff. Each of our research centres are supported by cutting edge experimental facilities including advanced microscopy and surface analysis, wind tunnels, mechanical and vibration testing, design centre, and mechanical workshops. We are also home to a Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre and a NERC-National Centre for Atmospheric Sciences. The University has recently launched Institutes in Artificial Intelligence and Sustainability, both of which have strong resonance with activities undertaken in the School of Mechanical Engineering Sciences.
In addition to a sector-leading salary you will receive a generous annual leave entitlement and excellent development opportunities. Our benefits package includes discounted membership to the Surrey Sports Park, nursery on site and relocation assistance (subject to meeting certain criteria). At Surrey, we are committed to providing an inclusive environment that offers equitable opportunities for all, in the pursuit of Surrey’s vision to be a leading global University. We work together to create a truly inclusive culture. The School has a current Athena SWAN Bronze Award and we place great value on diversity and welcome applicants from all backgrounds. We are seeking to increase the diversity within our community and would particularly encourage applications from women and from other under-represented groups. If you are successful in your application, you will join an energetic and innovative working environment with access to a variety of academic and professional development opportunities.
