Chair in Civil Engineering (Research in Resilience) at the University of Warwick

The School of Engineering at the University of Warwick invites applications for a chair in Civil Engineering: Professor in Civil Engineering (79055) with research in resilience

The School of Engineering are seeking to appoint a Professor in Civil Engineering to lead new research of international excellence in an area of civil and environmental engineering that complements the strategic aims of the School of Engineering. The successful candidate will promote and lead the continued development of teaching modern civil and environmental engineering within the range of taught programmes offered by the School at undergraduate, specialised masters and continued professional development levels.

The post holder will have a relevant honours degree or equivalent and hold a PhD level qualification or equivalent in an associated field. Substantial experience of research, teaching and administration in a major university or equivalent is also an essential, as is an outstanding record of achievement and leadership in research of international leading standing. Evidence of potential to promote, develop and lead the broad discipline of civil and environmental engineering within the context of a large integrated School of Engineering would be an advantage.

We welcome applications from candidates whose research is in the field of resilience. Applications from female candidates and those from a minority ethnic background are also particularly welcome as these groups are currently underrepresented within the School of Engineering.

The University aims to promote work life balance for all employees and the School of Engineering will consider a range of possible flexible working arrangements in order to recruit the best candidate.

For an informal and confidential discussion about this opportunity, please contact Professor Toby Mottram, Discipline Stream Leader for Civil and Environmental Engineering ( or tel: 02476 522528).
