The University of Hull is embarking on a series of major research
initiatives to tackle important global issues that focus on sustainability,
energy and the environment and is forming a research institute focused on
the interface between sustainable energy and environmental resilience.


Jointly with the Faculty of Science and Engineering, we wish to appoint
seven University Research Fellows that have proven abilities to undertake
independent and/or collaborative research programmes to support and
strengthen its mission and contribute to the academic leadership of at
least one of the following research areas:

   - Environmental sensors and systems
   - Surfaces and coatings for hostile environments
   - Wind turbine blades: materials, structures and advanced manufacturing
   - Offshore wind array modelling optimisation and control
   - Fault -tolerant control and dependable systems engineering for hostile
   - Coastal zone sediment dynamics
   - Aquaculture in coastal and marine environments

The Research Fellows will embark on a 5-year fixed term structured-research
development programme aimed at supporting the transition of the research
staff into full academic careers; developing their own independent research
ideas and skills that are necessary to establish themselves as the next
generation of research leaders. Each Fellowship will be provided with a
Research Support Fund (£12k per annum) to cover essential research costs.

We welcome applications from candidates that hold substantive fellowships
(e.g., EPSRC Early Career Fellowships, Royal Society University Research
Fellowships and European Research Council Starting Grants) that can be
brought to the University of Hull and can thus be extended in length. Those
who are currently candidates for such a fellowship are also welcome to
apply, and should give details of their date of application and when the
outcome is expected to be known.

The University of Hull holds the Athena SWAN University Bronze Award in
recognition of its commitment to advancing women's careers in science,
technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment and offers a
number of family-friendly employment practices that are designed to enable
a good work-life balance.

The fellowships are full-time positions of 36.5 hours per week for 5 years
from 1st June 2017.

   - Short CV (of no more than 4 sides of A4, minimum font size 12).

   - Statement, if in receipt of a substantive externally-funded fellowship
   (or in the process of application), of how you would move the fellowship to
   the University of Hull and integrate with the 5-year plan (above).
