Lecturer in Robotics and Mechatronic Systems – Grade 8

University of Liverpool


The Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics are seeking an individual working to extend and enhance the state-of-the-art in Robotics and Mechatronic Systems and to strengthen our position in this area.

The Department has a long-established track record in the research and teaching of mechatronics, robotics and embedded systems. With the new development of the University¿s Digital Innovation Facility, the Department is looking to expand its research and teaching in the areas of robotics, mechatronics and embedded systems as part of the University¿s ambitious Strategy 2026.

This permanent lectureship post is a response to a growing need for ambitious academic staff with a desire to excel in this domain, in research, teaching and the development of our current strong strategic partnerships.

You should be an enthusiastic, motivated and professional person who will help deliver a research programme of international excellence and rise to the challenge of applying for, and obtaining, prestigious research funding. You should have a background in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Robotics and Embedded Systems with experience in innovating effectively at the interface between these academic disciplines. You will have expertise in, and evidence of, working with non-academic organisations to solve real-world problems: we actively encourage individuals who are enthusiastic about applied robotics, automation and mechatronics for real-world solutions. You should have a PHD in a related area.

The School of Electrical Engineering Electronics and Computer Science is an Athena Swan Bronze award holder and is committed to encouraging, developing and supporting individuals in their research and academic careers. A dynamic, diverse and inclusive working environment must be an integral part of our society, giving everyone the opportunity to participate and to benefit.  Thus, we welcome applications from all sectors of the community.

As part of our commitments to increase diversity and inclusivity within our school, we particularly welcome applications from women, people who identify as an ethnic minority, people with disabilities and people from LGBTQ+ communities, as they are currently under-represented in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics.

This position is equivalent to US tenure track Associate Professor.
