Senior Lecturer in Maritime Engine Systems at Chalmers University of Technology

Applications are invited for a lecturer position in mechanical engineering to join Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. This position is available for two years. Potential candidates should apply before November 01, 2018.

The department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences (M2) conducts fundamental and applied research in all modes of transport to achieve sustainable technological solutions. M2 holds one of Sweden's most extensive simulator centre for navigation and propulsion of ships, as well as world class laboratories within combustion engineering and wind tunnels. The department also offers and contributes to bachelor and master programs in areas such as Shipping, Automotive and Mechanical Engineering to mention a few. In addition, professional education is performed on both a national and international level, with specific designed mission training for different social actors, within our ambition for a lifelong learning. The department continuously strives to establish a cooperation between academia, industry, and society, with a great focus on utilization. M2 is characterized by an international environment with employees and students from around the world, as well as outstanding research and world class education. M2 consists of seven different divisions within the areas of engineering and maritime sciences, and one division of administration and support.

Information about the division

The Division of Maritime Studies currently consists of 51 people engaged in teaching and research within the maritime arena. Advanced research is currently taking place mainly within the two research units Maritime environmental science and Maritime human factors, but the ambition is increased research in maritime operation. Teaching takes place mainly in the different maritime programs at Chalmers. Within the Division of Maritime Studies our competence group in maritime engineering can be found. Today, the group consists of seven people who deliver basic and advanced courses, especially for marine engineer students, but also training courses for active seafarers. The group uses both engine room simulators and modern laboratory environments for practical training in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, control and control technology, electronics and high voltage technology.
