Job description

As part of the growth of the Department of Engineering, we are seeking applications for a Lecturer in Engineering.
We are creating a vibrant Department that looks to lead innovation in education and research at one of the world’s leading universities. To support our ambition, King’s is investing in new multi-million-pound teaching and research laboratories of more than 3000 sqm for the Department at heart of its Strand campus, which opened in August 2022. We celebrate diversity and actively promote an inclusive environment and encourage applicants from underrepresented groups.
In moving our ambitions forward, we are continuing to appoint academics to join us in shaping the future of education and research for King’s Engineering.
We are developing a strong research profile with activities in areas such as mechatronics, sensors, signal and information processing, electronics, electrical engineering, materials, and telecommunications.  As we are looking to both strengthen and expand our activities, we are seeking candidates with research and/or experience in the above and in industrial automation and manufacturing, process modelling, digital twins, Internet of Things (IoT), immersive audio technologies and mechanics and structures. We welcome candidates whose research in these areas supports engineering for resilience, security and sustainability.
We have research links in our Faculty of Natural, Mathematical and Engineering Sciences, across the College, and beyond.  King’s is part of the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) with shared research and facilities between King’s, UCL and Imperial.  All of these foster an active, vibrant, and collaborative research environment.
We offer undergraduate and postgraduate education, with a distinctive approach, combining traditional teaching methods with modern, project-based learning, catering for the needs of our students and the industries in which they will work.  It is essential that applicants have the enthusiasm and commitment needed to ensure the success of these programmes.
