UKCRIC Lecturer in Green Infrastructure - Newcastle University

Closing date: 23/07/2017

Newcastle University has a lead role in the UK Collaboratorium for Research in Infrastructure & Cities (UKCRIC) which is funding new Green Infrastructure research laboratories. This includes the Newcastle Urban Observatory which is providing new high resolution understanding of urban water processes.

To support the £11.2m government investment in UKCRIC, the University seeks to appoint a Lecturer to take a leading role in the UKCRIC Urban Water and Green Infrastructure research facilities. The post is available from 1st October 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter. The first three years of the post will focus on conducting and developing the research profile of the facilities, before transitioning to a more balanced lecturing role.

Outstanding academics from all relevant areas of science - or engineering - will be considered, although we particularly welcome applicants with expertise in geotechnics, sustainable urban drainage, urban flooding, natural flood management, urban water management, water quality, adaptation to climate change who will complement our existing strengths. You will benefit from the University’s £60m investment in its new Urban Sciences Building, and have the opportunity to pioneer new research in the UKCRIC labs and to progress and grow the Urban Observatory in a direction that supports your research.

You will collaborate with other researchers in Newcastle, for example in interdisciplinary work in climate resilience, critical infrastructure, Big Data and the internet of things, urban natural hazards and remote sensing. You will have a proven research record in terms of publications and a relevant PhD, and proven or potential achievements in terms of research funding and international esteem. After three years, you will contribute modules to our undergraduate and MSc programmes.
