Fixed Term Contract for approx 30 months
Salary from £28,132 to £38,907 a year

The School of Civil Engineering at the University of Birmingham has a rich and diverse history of water-related research spanning over 50 years and covering all aspects of the engineered water cycle. The Water Engineering group has a global reputation for excellence in water and wastewater research and has a worldwide academic network on four different continents.

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic Research Fellow to support our current research portfolio and help us drive forward new initiatives. The Water Engineering Group’s current research focus is placed on experimental and numerical approaches to address the challenges that we face in managing water security and resource efficiency and the associated links with energy management. This broad remit encapsulates experimental and numerical analysis of water and wastewater treatment processes, water quality monitoring and measurement, and fundamental fluid mechanics.

We are looking for an enthusiastic Research Fellow with postgraduate experience in one or more of our current areas of interest. Candidates must be able to demonstrate significant achievements in either numerical modelling or laboratory- and field-based experimentation and analysis. The Research Fellow will be expected to support current research projects, deliver new work programmes and work with Research Group members on the future direction of water engineering at Birmingham.

To apply, you should possess a good first degree, or higher, in Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering or related areas and have completed a PhD in water engineering or water science. It is likely that the successful candidate will have an exciting vision, which demonstrates how they could achieve an independent research career within a three-year period.
