The Department of Civil & Structural Engineering at the University of Sheffield invites applications from outstanding and ambitious candidates for a position in Geotechnical Engineering at the Lecturer / Senior Lecturer level.
We seek a talented individual who can relate their research and teaching vision to impact within one or more of the following key challenges: infrastructure performance and resilience; adaptation of geotechnical systems for an evolving climate; low carbon development and management; integration of digital technologies with geotechnical applications. Applicants with a strong laboratory / physical modelling background are especially welcome, as are those with links to the design profession.
The Department has high quality geotechnical laboratory and physical modelling facilities including, at our Broad Lane site, advanced soil element testing laboratory, transparent soil (laser) laboratory and a 4.5m diameter beam centrifuge. The department is also home to the Integrated Civil and infrastructure Research Centre (iCAIR), part of the UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC), where large scale physical testing on soil-water-structure problems can be carried out. Together, these offer a huge potential to develop and deepen experimental research interests across a range of geo-related problems.
