As a world-leading research-intensive University, we are here to address tomorrow’s greatest challenges. Between now and 2030 we will do that with a values-led approach to teaching, research, and innovation, and through the strength of our relationships, both locally and globally. Edinburgh is a truly global university and we have always had a commitment to diversity and a community in which students feel valued and welcome.

The School of Engineering can trace its beginnings at the University of Edinburgh to 1868, when Queen Victoria appointed the first Regius Chair of Engineering at Edinburgh – the oldest such position in the UK. The present School of Engineering was formed in 2002 from the previous departments of Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electronics and Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.

Since then, our School has gone from strength to strength, growing rapidly in the last 10 years and now offers undergraduate degree programmes across all disciplines, taught Masters degrees in specialist areas and an enviable breadth and depth of research addressing global challenges.  The School is run as a single academic unit with 430 staff (165 academic staff, 125 professional and technical staff, and 140 postdoctoral researchers), 550 postgraduate research (PGR) students and 2,100 undergraduate and postgraduate taught (PGT) students. As such, it is one of the largest schools in the University of Edinburgh.

We aim to ensure that our culture and systems support flexible and family-friendly working and recognise and value diversity across all our staff and students. The School holds a bronze Athena SWAN award, in recognition of our commitment to advancing gender equality in higher education and research.

We are seeking to appoint an individual with an internationally excellent track record of research who brings an inclusive, collaborative approach and can evidence the ability to provide academic and management leadership across the School.

We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion, and applicants from minority groups are particularly welcomed.

The University of Edinburgh is willing to consider flexible working or job share arrangements for this appointment.

The closing date is Tuesday 31st January 2023.
