We welcome applications from those with interests, experience and expertise in cryogenic research, especially in relation to hydrogen, CO2, Helium and LNG liquefaction, biofuel upgrade and carbon capture innovation and analysis of the hydrogen value chain.
This is an exciting opportunity to join an expanding, unified Engineering Department which is recognised as being one of the very best in the UK, with a reputation for excellence in teaching, research and employability of our students. The candidate would be expected to work alongside colleagues within the Future Energy Systems Challenge as well as the Durham Energy Institute and other partners.
This post offers an exciting opportunity to make an important contribution to the development of the Department of Engineering’s research while allowing you excellent opportunities to develop your career in an exciting and progressive institution.
Demonstrable experience in undertaking research, developing techniques, engaging in research collaborative partnerships and networks, developing funding proposals, writing and presenting research findings, and engaging in citizenship activities are expected from candidates applying for this role.
In the REF2021 research excellence exercise, 95% of our outputs were graded 3*/4*, and all our impact case studies were ranked 3*/4*. Research activity within the Engineering Department is concentrated around three Research Challenges, namely Sustainable Infrastructure, Future Energy Systems and Advanced Materials, Electronics and Communications. Day-to-day research is organised under eight research nodes, with the most relevant to this post being Thermal Energy. We are particularly proud of the collaborative interdisciplinary nature of our research, which also includes strong industrial partnerships.
We are a scholarly community that is open, supportive, collegiate, representative and diverse: our commitment to this is expressed through work of the Department’s EDI and Wellbeing Committee, and our Athena Swan Bronze Award. The Department has just submitted for the Athena Swan Silver Award.
