Civil, Maritime and Environmental Engineering
The Department of Civil, Maritime and Environmental Engineering represents the ideal environment and career springboard for early and mid-career academics. We have a leading national and international reputation for excellence in onshore, coastal and offshore infrastructure, for example through leadership roles in UKCRIC (UK Collaboration for Research in Infrastructure & Cities), UKRRIN (UK Rail Research and Innovation Network), the EPSRC Offshore Renewable Energy Supergen Hub and Chairs supported by Shell and the Royal Academy of Engineering. We also host particular expertise and capabilities in sensing, robotics, mechatronics and data science, as applied to engineered systems and the natural and built environments. Many of the department’s activities are based on the recently-completed Boldrewood Innovation Campus, where the £48M UKCRIC National Infrastructure Laboratory (NIL) was opened in 2019.The NIL features brand new laboratories for large structures, materials testing and geomechanics (including centrifuge modelling). Adjacent to the NIL are new hydrosciences laboratories, with flumes and the UK’s largest University towing /wave tank, 138m in length, for coastal and maritime applications. Successful candidates will further develop and exploit the potential of the NIL and the Boldrewood Innovation Campus in close collaboration with other research groups across the School, industrial collaborators and academic partners worldwide.
We are seeking to make an appointment in the area of Experimental Geomechanics. This successful candidate will lead research in experimental geomechanics, taking advantage of the new NIL facilities. The NIL features a 6m-diameter geotechnical beam centrifuge, equipped with the latest robotic actuation and data acquisition systems, as well as a 200m2 geomechanics laboratory.
