About the Role
We are seeking to appoint an Assistant Professor with experience of developing or delivering modules or skills in the field of Automotive Electrification. This role is on the University of Warwick Teaching Career Pathway, providing opportunities for advancement up to and including Professor level. There is significant growth in demand for our education programmes and this is an exciting opportunity for you to develop your professional profile and work as part of a world- renowned education group.
We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
