We invite applications for an Associate Professor/Lecturer (Assistant Professor*). You will join the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at the University of Southampton supporting all areas of Astronautics and spacecraft engineering. Some research areas that would complement our existing strengths are: 

  • Space-systems/CubeSat design engineering and/or new concepts for future space systems
  • Space/satellite technology including instrumentation, communications and/or remote sensing
  • Data science for space applications
  • Astrodynamics and space environment including mission design, simulation and analysis
  • Space robotics, space-vehicle control and autonomous systems
  • Additive manufacturing and structures for/in space

We would also welcome applications from candidates with expertise in any combination of above-mentioned areas and indeed all other areas relevant to astronautics and spacecraft engineering. You will join a very active department with inter-disciplinary research interests across Aeronautics and Astronautics where fundamental and industrially relevant problems are addressed with theoretical, experimental and computational methods. We have a strong Astronautics research thrust within the department with work in orbital mechanics, propulsion, instrumentation, debris modelling, spacecraft structures and aerothermodynamics of ballistic and re-entry vehicles. The Department is within the School of Engineering where complementary work in Material science, X-ray/CT Scanning, additive manufacturing and macro-/micro-vibrations are carried out. The school has recently made major investments in new experimental facilities across different departments in experimental aerodynamics and propulsion, structural mechanics and additive manufacturing. The University also hosts one of the most powerful supercomputers in the UK. 

To be successful you will have an academic reputation, demonstrated by high-quality journal publications in your field as you will be committed to developing, largely through external funding, a research team in your area. In education, it goes without saying that you will develop and deliver a range of innovative teaching and assessment approaches in different areas of Aeronautics and Astronautics continually enhancing the student experience.  You will support us in developing our range of modules and project work and to widen our teaching activities in your area of interest. It is essential you have a PhD or equivalent professional qualifications and experience in Engineering or related subject.

All applicants must include a Curriculum Vitae, a three-page research statement, which includes research vision and grant capture over the next five years and a one-page teaching statement highlighting the areas of interest and ideas for innovation in education in Aeronautics and Astronautics.
