The successful candidate will undertake research and develop novel solutions in the mechanical design of MW-class electrical machines. The successful candidate will also be supporting a number of research projects within the group and will be working closely with colleagues across technical disciplines. This post is in the Faculty of Engineering based on the University Park campus. However, when needed, travel across University sites and to industrial partners may be required.
Candidates must hold a PhD or equivalent (or about to obtain) in mechanical engineering or a relevant area with research experience and interest in the mechanical design of rotating machinery. The successful candidate should demonstrate abilities to collaborate with multidisciplinary research teams and projects including in the planning, tasking, resource management, liaison with partners and dissemination of research results. Excellent research techniques and methodologies, communication skills and the ability to be a team leader are essential for this post. The University of Nottingham is also developing a major initiative in aircraft hybrid propulsion and the successful candidate will be expected to make a significant contribution to the development of innovative research in this area as well as take lead in the design and development of complex test systems.
