School Vacancies

We are seeking candidates for the following job vacancies at the School of Engineering.
  • The successful candidate will implement lnfra-Red Chemical Species Tomography (CST) systems on a variety of combustion plant, such as marine engines and gas turbines, and will explore process engineering applications of electrical tomography. They will have in-depth knowledge of tomographic measurement systems and image reconstruction methods, and will be able to adapt optical, mechanical, and both analogue and digital electronic sub-systems, to new target processes. The Edinburgh group in Agile Tomography sits within the Research Institute for Digital Communications. The ability to liaise productively with a range of academic and industrial partners is essential.

  • he School of Engineering, as part of The Edinburgh Centre for Robotics (ECR), University of Edinburgh, invites international applications for three full-time Postdoctoral Research Associates (Grade 7) in Sensors and Offshore Robotics to join the new EPSRC funded Robotics and Artificial Intelligence(RAI) hub: ORCA Hub.

    These three Postdoctoral Research Associate positions will contribute to the ORCA Hub within the Institute for Integrated micro and Nano Systems, and the Institute for Energy Systems in The School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh, and in collaboration with colleagues in The School of Informatics as well as at Heriot-Watt University, Imperial College London, Oxford University and Liverpool University. The successful candidates will play a leading role in developing novel sensor systems and proof of concept robotic systems for underwater manipulation in the dynamic environments found in offshore energy.

    These fixed term posts are full time and are available until 31 March 2021. Appointments to the post(s) will be made for a minimum of 12 months, with the potential to extend to the full term following satisfactory performance reviews. Longer term appointments for exceptional candidates will be considered at the offer stage.

    Please indicate in the supporting statement section if you would like to be considered for a particular project only, otherwise candidates will be considered for both the sensing and the underwater robotics posts.

  • The University of Edinburgh is seeking a postdoctoral Research Associate for 3 years (36 months) to investigate the behaviour of methane gas inside porous rock media using molecular dynamics simulations. This is part of a joint research project between the University of Edinburgh, the University of Strathclyde , and King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) on the dynamics of gas flows in underground reservoirs.

    This position is to work with Prof Jason Reese, Dr Matthew Borg, and their research team in the School of Engineering. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, the School’s joint submission with Heriot-Watt University was first in the UK for “research power”, with 94% of our research activity achieving world-leading (4) or internationally excellent (3) ratings. The University of Edinburgh is one of the world’s top 25 universities.

  • The University of Edinburgh is one of the world’s top 25 institutions of Higher Education and provides exceptional research, teaching, and living environments. The School of Engineering comprises more than 125 academic staff, 1,700 undergraduate students, and 640 postgraduate students. We carry out internationally excellent teaching and research, attracting high-calibre students and an excellent level of research funding. We are now investing to strengthen and deepen our coverage of Chemical Engineering by appointment to: Lecturer or Senior Lecturer (L/SL) in Chemical Engineering, with a focus on Water Engineering.

    The successful candidate will be internationally prominent in Chemical/Environmental Engineering (or will demonstrate strong potential to be so). The L/SL will undertake teaching duties in Chemical Engineering, carry out fundamental and applied research with a focus on treatment of industrial waters and water management in industrial processes (e.g. systems modelling, separation processes, and biological treatment), and be expected to attract significant external research income. The L/SL will also be a member of the Institute for Infrastructure and Environment (IIE), which is presently enhancing its water-related research activities via the Centre for Water Engineering.

    The level of appointment for the Lecturer/Senior Lecturer post will be determined by the selection panel.

    The culture of the School of Engineering and the University is open and diverse and we are committed to reflecting that in our appointment process.

    For informal discussion, potential candidates are invited to contact the Head of School, Prof. Hugh McCann at +44 (0)131 650 5566, or HoS.Eng@ed.ac.uk, Director of Discipline for Chemical Engineering, Prof. Stefano Brandani, +44 (0)131 651 9030, or S.Brandani@ed.ac.uk, or Prof. Alistair Borthwick, Head of the Institute for Infrastructure and Environment, at +44 (0)131 650 5588, or Alistair.Borthwick@ed.ac.uk

  • We seek an outstanding researcher for a project addressing randomised algebra algorithms for real-time process analytics. In essence, the aim is to develop statistical computing tools that utilise a priori available information on model structure. This project is funded by EPSRC, and will be based at the School of Engineering of the University of Edinburgh. The successful applicant will conduct research into developing and analysing randomised sampling algorithms for solving partial differential equations on high dimensional models and inverse regression problems to estimate model parameters. The responsibilities include the design of randomisation algorithms for finite element matrix sketching, design of subset selection algorithms for large-scale regression, analysis of the randomisation-induced error to quantify the variance in the estimated quantities, software implementation in Matlab or Python, and publishing peer reviewed articles and presenting work at conferences.

    The post is funded for 24 months, starting March 1st, 2018.
