Principal Lecturer in Civil Engineering

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, or for an individual to gain promotion within the team. The Civil Engineering team 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 help to further develop its research offering.

This role will primarily focus on the academic management, resourcing, delivery and development of these courses whilst also contributing to general teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level within the subject area. Candidates will be expected to offer knowledge and skills relevant to the wide civil engineering, design and construction fields. Demonstrable management and leadership skills are essential as you will play a key role in the development, teaching and management of academic staff and programmes within the discipline.

You will have a degree in civil engineering or related discipline. In addition to this you will have previous experience of teaching and research and preferably appropriate professional practice. It is desirable that you will also 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 the 2014 NSS Survey results which placed the NTU Civil Engineering courses 1st equal in overall student satisfaction. To further to support the student learning experience, the Civil Engineering laboratory facilities are currently undergoing a £350,000 upgrade. So whilst past teaching and course management 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
