Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering, Open University
We are seeking to recruit a Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering to contribute to the development of a new mechanical engineering strand of teaching within our distance-learning BEng/MEng qualifications. You will also work as part of the engineering teaching team to help with the presentation of existing general engineering modules, and to carry out up to two weeks of face-to-face teaching annually at our engineering residential schools held during July and August.
You will be research active in the field of Materials Engineering. In REF2014, Panel B13 judged 91% of materials engineering research at the OU to be ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ based on outputs. You will work within the School of Engineering & Innovation’s Materials Engineering Group and will be expected to secure external research funding, publish in high-ranking peer reviewed journals and contribute to future REF submissions.
You must be committed to the principles of equality and diversity in all aspects of your teaching and research. Experience of online and/or distance education would be desirable.
The University is proud to have gained an Athena SWAN Institutional Bronze Award in April 2013. The School of Engineering & Innovation is currently awaiting the outcome of its application for Bronze Award status.
