This role offers the opportunity to uncover behaviour, trends and phenomena never before observed in a critical national asset; our wastewater collection (sewer) network. You will work across the full range of scales from detailed analysis of sensor test data to truly big data collected in live field measurements. You will learn techniques from existing experts, then learn from the data to become an expert yourself in a new and challenging field of development.
You will be driven and determined, having a strongly numerate technical background and be looking to make an impact from Day 1 in a dynamic and growing business, working with experts inside the company and through our academic partners.
You will have (or are to be awarded) good BEng/MEng, degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Physics or Mathematics, a PhD in a relevant subject is desirable. You will have a good working knowledge of machine learning approaches and mechanical principles. A good working knowledge of a relevant computer programming language and simulation packages, (for example Matlab, C/C++, or Python) is essential.
The Department of Civil and Structural Engineering is one of the largest Civil Engineering departments in the UK. Over the last five years research activity in the Department has expanded, and we now have over 70 researchers. Research work of an internationally competitive standard is being carried out, in one of the most active research communities within civil engineering in the UK. For further information regarding the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering see: www.sheffield.ac.uk/civil. Mechanical Engineering has been a major discipline in the University since its foundation in 1905. Further information regarding the Department of Mechanical Engineering see: www.shef.ac.uk/mecheng.
nuron was set up to address the need for a step change in monitoring technology for the wastewater industry, and to lead a team of bright entrepreneurs, innovators and engineering experts. nuron was founded by Mike Ainger and commenced trading in 2015.
nuron’s ambition is to be the leading supplier of modular distributed optical monitoring solutions and containment systems for complex/harsh environments, starting with the waste water industry.
The University’s Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support personal and professional development.
We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
