The Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Bath is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Electrical Propulsive Systems to conduct high-impact research, provide excellent postgraduate research supervision, and deliver high-quality teaching in Automotive Engineering. The successful applicant will have track record in applied engineering and teaching, with the potential to develop a research portfolio. In particular, the post-holder should have experience (or potential) in research encompassing electrification, battery-thermal management, or electrical machines and drives.
Based at the Department, the Institute of Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (IAAPS) is a leading institute for theoretical, experimental and analytical research into powertrain systems in the UK. The team has an excellent track record in delivering industry-relevant projects, and has long established collaborations with industrial partners. Our work covers all of the links in the chain from energy storage to its conversion into mechanical work on board a vehicle. The recently secured £61m investment for a new facility in Bristol and Bath Science Park will deliver significant new test facilities and collaboration space to propel the IAAPS team into a global leading position. Research will play an important role in the vital task of making a cleaner environment.
