ESBiomech24 Congress in Edinburgh

Lecturer / Assistant Professor in Biomechanics in Sheffield, UK

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sheffield (UK) is looking to expand its academic team in a number of areas. Our priority in this recruitment call is to bring in excellent individuals working in emerging areas within their field who are also able to contribute to our cross-disciplinary efforts in tackling global challenges. This specific post requires an expertise in Biomechanics, but please bear in mind the overall aim of the call when putting together your application.

Biomechanics is one of our main research themes and we are particularly interested in candidates who can benefit from and complement existing expertise, for example by collaborating with colleagues on new research initiatives that extend our capabilities in this area.

You will have expertise in biomechanics. We are particularly interested in extending our capabilities in the areas of gait biomechanics and wearable sensors, experimental tissue biomechanics, multiscale and data-driven computational modelling.

As Lecturer, you will conduct a programme of research, attracting external funding from a range of sources, publishing work in high-quality peer-reviewed journals and attending conferences and seminars. You will also carry out teaching duties including designing, delivering, assessing and reviewing teaching programmes for undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Initially you will be allocated a lighter than average teaching load (for example one 10 credit course) and reduced administrative duties to allow focus on establishing a research career and developing as a teacher. We will also provide a generous support package to ensure rapid progress in research activity.

Interested candidates can apply here.
