The University of Cambridge and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council are making a strategic investment around the theme of 'Energy Efficient Cities'. The aim is to strengthen the UK's capacity to address energy demand reduction in cities. The funding provides for three University Lectureships with over £1m of associated direct research support in the form of three positions for post-doctoral research associates, four research studentships, and about £400,000 for equipment, consumables, and travel. Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for these Lectureships; two in the Department of Engineering, and one in the Department of Architecture. The successful candidates will be in the following areas:
Building Technology: research technologies for low-energy buildings, whose scope includes novel materials and surface treatments; heat transfer through and ventilation flows in buildings; sensors and smart computer-based systems to optimize energy use; and technologies to exploit the energy available on the site from ground source heat pumps to photovoltaic roofs and wind turbines, addressing technologies to improve current stock as well as new build. Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Robert Mair (email firstname.lastname@example.org, tel. 01223 332631) or Professor Randall Thomas (email email@example.com, tel. 01223 332717).
Transport Technology: investigate technologies for the next generation of ground vehicles. Candidates are sought with interests and relevant background in one or more of the following and allied areas: achieving high efficiency and low emissions with extreme engine downsizing; ultra-light weight vehicles; sensors and smart computer-based systems; improved energy storage devices for electric/hybrid vehicles; integration of building and vehicle power supply; and attention to the vehicle's energy-consuming sub-components. Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Ann Dowling (email firstname.lastname@example.org, tel. 01223 332739).
Building and Transport Design: to address urban design and planning to integrate low-energy buildings and transport, developing quantifiable systems level models so that trade-offs can be assessed. Areas of interest include Land Use and Transport Interaction Models (LUTI), behavioural studies, sustainability assessment, and policy design. Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Marcial Echenique (email email@example.com, tel. 01223 332958).
In all cases, a willingness to collaborate, an ability to develop a systems-level view and to address multi-disciplinary optimization would be important. The successful candidates will have or be expected to develop a record of world-class research commensurate with the Departments' international reputations and top-rank research ratings. Teaching responsibilities will include contributing to undergraduate courses, supervising final-year projects, and supervising graduate students. The successful candidates will take up the appointments on 1 September 2008 or as soon as possible thereafter. The appointments will be for a probationary period of five years and, subject to satisfactory performance, with appointment to the retiring age thereafter.
The salary for all three posts will be in the range of £34,793 to £44,074 a year.
