We are the largest engineering School within the Faculty of Science and Engineering at the University of Manchester. Manchester was the birthplace of the engineering discipline, and MACE has historical routes in the Institute of Mechanics in founded in 1824. Today the School hosts 1300 undergraduate and 450 postgraduate students, delivers undergraduate programmes across Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, and MSc programmes in both technical engineering subjects and management. With 120 academic staff, 90 technical and support staff, and 300 postgraduate research students and post-docs, the School is at the forefront of engineering education in the UK.
To drive forward our exciting agenda of raising the quality of our teaching, our learning and student experience, as well as world-leading research, we seek to appoint an outstanding early career academic to develop exciting new technology and provide an innovative experience for engineering students.
You will undertake original research in fluid simulation and be able to give evidence of excellent prior work, as well as a clear work plan for developing your research in the future. You will already be able to provide examples of significant computer software development as well as the implementation and testing of novel numerical methods. Our priority is focused on expertise in developing simulation tools in one or more of the following topics based on EPSRC defined research areas.
• Turbulence modelling and simulation; multi/many core architectures, high-order methods, lattice Boltzmann method.
• Heat transfer & multi-physics; fluid boiling, magnetohydrodynamics, plasma, electrohydrodynamics.
• Continuum mechanics; fluid-structure interactions for complex materials, multi-physical continua, bio-fluids, non-Newtonian fluids
• Data-driven approaches; Machine-learning, uncertainty quantification.
As an early career academic, you will be given an appropriate level of teaching responsibility and will be expected to develop innovative approaches to improve the quality of teaching, learning and feedback to enhance the student experience.
The School is committed to Athena SWAN principles, promotes gender equality and diversity throughout the School. Applications are particularly welcomed from women and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic applicants. All appointments are made on merit.
