Mechanical Engineering has been a major discipline in the University of Sheffield since its foundation in 1905 and is a thriving department within the University's Faculty of Engineering. We are one of the UKs leading departments of Mechanical Engineering, and are home to over 1000 students (Undergraduate, Postgraduate Taught and Postgraduate Research) and 58 academic staff. The Department is seeking to appoint a Lecturer to work within the Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine (Insigneo), an initiative between the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Sheffield, and the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust. You will also be a member of staff in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

The successful applicant will need to hold a good first degree and PhD in a topic relevant to biomechanics (or equivalent experience) and have research experience and plans that are complementary to the research themes of Insigneo, details of which can be found on the Insigneo website:
https://insigneo.org/. In addition, you will need to demonstrate how you plan to conduct a high quality programme of research, including attracting external funding from a range of sources, publishing working in high quality peer-reviewed journals, attending conferences and building an international profile.

Furthermore, you will also be required to carry out teaching duties including designing, delivering, assessing and reviewing teaching programmes for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Initially, you will be allocated a lighter than average teaching load (typically just one 10 credit course), and little or no administrative duties to allow you to focus on establishing your research career. We will also provide a generous support package to ensure rapid progress in your research activity.
