Salary Range: GBP48,336 - GBP60,306 per annum
Mode: Full Time, Permanent
Reporting to the director of National Transport Design Centre (NTDC), you will have responsibility, with a commensurate level of authority, for establishing and growing a portfolio of research for the Centre, supporting the main research themes of 'Influencing Factors' and 'Design Process and Technology'. This portfolio may contain internally-funded research, company directed and funded research and collaborative R&D. In addition, you will have responsibility for developing the portfolio of post-graduate education, up to and including doctoral level.
You will have a demonstrable track record in leading and directing research groups in the area of design and/or closely related disciplines, a significant personal record of generating high quality (3* and above) research outputs, and a history of securing research funding from a variety of sources.
The first three years of operation of the Centre will be critical, and whilst there will be a significant focus on securing activity and establishing credentials early, the incumbent in this role must also have a long-term view of the sustainability of the research and education portfolios.
