The Department of Civil & Structural Engineering at the University of Sheffield, UK is inviting applications from outstanding candidates for the position of Lecturer in Geotechnical Engineering, to help shape our research activity and taught programmes. While applications from all areas of geotechnics – whether numerical or physical – are welcome, we seek a talented individual who can relate their research vision to impact on key challenges such as infrastructure performance/resilience, adaptation of geotechnical systems for an evolving climate, low carbon development/management, decarbonisation of energy production, and integration of digital technologies.
The Department’s teaching is underpinned by international leading research, ranked top 4 in the UK for research excellence, and offers excellent laboratories and facilities for students. All undergraduate and postgraduate courses are accredited. The Department has particular expertise in resilient infrastructure, sustainability and carbon-neutral construction, digital technologies, characterisation of new materials, and management of risk and hazards. We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
