The space engineering group of the School of Engineering of the University of Liverpool is looking for a highly motivated candidate to join our department permanently. Closing date 7th of Feb 2023
This appointment is a potential opportunity for either ‘early career’ or more experienced candidates. You will already have an established track record of academic endeavour. This will include papers in internationally leading journals in your field, the potential for, or demonstration of, the ability to attract significant funding from a range of sources. To strengthen our existing portfolio of activities, we are particularly interested in candidates who have an expertise in Orbit Determination and Space Systems. You will be expected to engage with existing – and develop new – networks of academic, industrial, and government collaborators in Aerospace/Space networks within and beyond the University.
We are looking for a new enthusiastic academic who is passionate about the student experience both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and will support the growth of our current research linked teaching portfolio in space engineering to complement our current offer. We are particularly interested in candidates who have a proven track record and expertise in relevant space discipline (e.g., GNC, orbit determination, attitude control, space systems or other) to expand and strengthen the activity led by Dr Soldini, who holds an UKRI Future Research Leaders Fellowship with the project title: REMORA – REndezvous Mission for Orbital Reconstruction of Asteroids: a fleet of self-driven CubeSats for tracking and characterising asteroids and is a science co-I for the NASA-DART, ESA-Hera and JAXA-Hayabusa2 missions. We especially welcome candidates with strong computational, theoretical and experimental focus on autonomous systems and AI.
