Role Description

Lecturers in Clinical/Biomedical Engineering


The Department of Electronic Engineering at the University of York has an international reputation for excellence in research and teaching. In line with the Department's long-term plans for expansion we seek to appoint an outstanding academic to build upon and expand existing strengths in Medical Engineering, with specific relevance to Clinical and/or Biomedical Engineering, contributing to the research, teaching and administration of this discipline. As a Department we strive to provide a working environment which allows all staff and students to contribute fully, to flourish, and to excel. We are proud of our Athena SWAN Bronze Award.


You will have evidence of developing an international research record and should possess a clear research vision across the area of Clinical and/or Biomedical Engineering. We particularly welcome applications from candidates with expertise in one of the following areas:

Clinical Engineering - The advancement of innovative medical technologies and their delivery to clinical practice, including medical imaging, patient diagnosis and monitoring, rehabilitation, digital health and wearables, the design and implementation of clinical studies, including regulatory compliance and quality assurance.

Biomedical Engineering - The application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes, including biomaterials, bioinstrumentation and bionics, biomechanics and biofluidics, biomedical imaging, and cellular, tissue, and molecular engineering.

You will contribute to the Department's growing research reputation in these areas, including supporting impact activities, in addition to designing, developing and delivering undergraduate and postgraduate teaching across a range of related subjects. Specifically, you will:

  • Individually and collaboratively develop research projects and proposals, contributing to the production of research outputs, outcomes and impact;
  • Publish original research in appropriate journals or other relevant media as appropriate and attend international conferences for the purpose of disseminating research results or for personal development;
  • Design, develop and deliver teaching across a wide range of modules and within a particular programme or subject area;
  • Supervise PhD students;
  • Undertake, effectively, a range of administrative and managerial responsibilities.

Skills, Experience & Qualification needed

Key requirements for the post are:

•  A PhD in Electronic Engineering, Physics, or cognate discipline with Clinical and/or Biomedical Engineering relevance, or other, equivalent experience;

• Expertise and specialist knowledge in the principles, design concepts and implementation of Clinical and/or Biomedical Engineering technologies with a focus towards real-world deployment;

• Proven ability to contribute to high quality research which is publicly evidenced;

• Ability to supervise the work of others including PhD students.

For an informal discussion regarding this post, please contact the Head of Department, Prof Andy Tyrrell (andy.tyrrell@york.ac.uk), or Simone Quinn (simone.quinn@york.ac.uk), if you would like to learn about working in the Department of Electronic Engineering at York.
