Prosperity Partnership Research Fellows (Vehicle Electrification Project with Jaguar Land Rover)

£29,799 - £38,833 pa

Fixed Term Contract for 2 years with possibility of extension (multiple posts are available)

WMG at the University of Warwick has been awarded an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Prosperity Partnership with Jaguar Land Rover.  These awards seek to bring together researchers in business and academia to tackle strategic issues. The research in this Partnership will address the emerging challenges for vehicle electrification - batteries, power electronics, electric machines, and bearing and gear materials and surfaces. 

WMG is seeking a number of talented researchers to join its new Prosperity Partnership team headed by Professor Barbara Shollock. This strategic partnership between WMG and Jaguar Land Rover offers an exciting opportunity for engagement in joint academic-industrial projects in the area of vehicle electrification.

With a PhD (or nearing completion) in Engineering, Physics, Applied Mathematics/Computer Science, or a Materials-related field, you will be keen to apply your knowledge to electric vehicles. We are looking for people with skills in modelling and/or experimental work.

This is a great opportunity to develop your collaborative research skills, and to grow your own professional network within this area.  In return, we will provide access to state of the art research facilities as well as all the usual employee benefits that you would expect from one of the UK’s leading universities.

Benefits and Working Environment

At Warwick, we offer a great range of benefits, which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus public holidays and University customary closure days, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.

WMG offers a supportive working environment and applications for part-time or flexible working will be considered. We are committed to supporting staff to achieve their full potential. Both WMG and the University of Warwick hold Athena SWAN awards, a national initiative that recognises the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all in academia. We are supportive of staff with caring responsibilities including a generous maternity/paternity/adoption/parental leave policy and the childcare vouchers scheme.
