Our department

The department of Biomedical Engineering has a broad and highly collaborative research activity, complimented by a suite of undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes. Our research falls largely into the following fields;

•          Medical Devices and Diagnostics

•          Cell and Tissue Engineering

•          Rehabilitation Engineering

The department collaborates with local, national and international academic, industrial and clinical sectors and we are keen to further strengthen these activities and relationships to maintain our leading position with respect to our highly impactful research and teaching. We are currently seeking to attract new academic leadership and talent that is complementary to our research and teaching, with a particular emphasis on Artificial Intelligence expertise as applied to rehabilitation and assistive technologies and medical devices and diagnostics.  Depending on the skills and experience of the applicant, this may be a cross disciplinary joint appointment, e.g. with the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, or Computer and Information Sciences.

The opportunity

We would love to hear from you if you have a PhD and postdoctoral research experience; an emerging publication history in high quality academic journals; and research interests which align with this area of strategic priority – particularly if you already hold an external fellowship that can be transferred to us.

In keeping with our commitment to equality and diversity, we encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly those who can support our Athena SWAN activity, which inspires the advancement and representation of women in higher education. 

You’ll be rewarded with:

  • Growth of your research portfolio
  • Reduced teaching load and limited administrative duties over the initial years of your Fellowship
  • Support through our academic career development framework to meet your training needs and enhance your effectiveness – allowing you to be ready for promotion within 5-years of your appointment
  • Mentoring, to help you establish a balance of research, teaching, knowledge exchange and citizenship responsibilities while enhancing your leadership qualities to support your long-term career.

* Your Fellowship will normally be at lecturer level (exceptionally, at senior lecturer (Grade 9) (£51,630 - £58,089) where you have a strong track record in research leadership) for 5 years, with the expectation that you’ll meet our promotion criteria within that period and be transferred to senior lecturer (or, where you’ve been appointed as a senior lecturer, Reader) level.
