Teaching Fellow in Computational Mechanics

Are you an enthusiastic and forward-thinking mechanical engineer with strong computational modelling and engineering design analysis skills in areas such as computational fluid dynamics and computational structural mechanics? Do you have experience in supervising individual or team student projects? Do you possess excellent communication skills? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading Universities? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University?

We are looking for an outstanding candidate to play a key role in our taught provision of our computational mechanics modules and individual projects in our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in the School of Mechanical Engineering.

You will be expected to provide teaching and support of our computational mechanics modules and engineering project students who are carrying out their individual projects in the general area of computational mechanics, using simulation tools in project areas such as computational fluid dynamics and computational structural mechanics. This will include providing introductory training for the computational mechanics packages being used by students on their individual projects (e.g. ANSYS Fluent, COMSOL, ABAQUS, Matlab SIMULINK etc.) and on-going support in these to students throughout their projects. You will also supervise your own student projects using one or more of the above computational packages and assist the module leaders of the individual engineering projects modules with general administration and assessment duties on these modules.

You will have an undergraduate degree and PhD or PhD award pending (that is submitted, examined and awarded subject to minor corrections) in Mechanical Engineering or a related discipline, and will hold chartered membership of a relevant professional institution such as the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, or be working towards such a qualification.
