Working at the Department

The Department of Engineering Science is an exciting place to work. I have been associated with the Department for the last 25 years as an academic and during that time I have seen a lot of change, invention and growth.

Our world-class research has real-world impact; for example it has led to the development of a new jet engine turbine with significant fuel savings and a reduction in CO2 emissions. The water industry has adopted our membrane filtration work; we have designed technology to preserve more livers for transplant and our patient monitoring work has led to a reduction in the number of cardiac arrests in hospital.

By attracting the best staff and students from around the world we are able to continue and develop this successful research. We provide challenging but stimulating work opportunities and aim to support your career development and future prospects. Research work can be particularly demanding and we aim to provide a supportive and inspiring environment, whilst valuing our diverse workforce and promoting equality throughout the department.
