Professor of Process Systems Engineering
Minimum salary £71,760 per annum. Full-time, open-ended appointment
The Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London is
consistently recognised as world-leading, heading the ranking list in
the last three UK Research Assessment Exercises, in 1996, 2001 and 2008
and in the Research Excellence Framework in 2014. The Centre for Process
Systems Engineering resides within the Department and is a multi-
institutional centre with a worldwide reputation for shaping the
direction of systems engineering research.
We attribute our success to the wide range of skills and expertise of
our students and staff. Our research interests range from the
microscopic e.g. molecular organisation and interactions - to the
megascale e.g. design and optimisation of whole distribution networks.
We have expertise in mathematical analysis and modelling as well as in
experimental investigation and measurement. In all of these areas we
deploy, and indeed often devise ourselves, the most up-to-date methods.
Much of our research is collaborative and cross-disciplinary within and
across departments, across different faculties, as well as with other
Universities, and with Industrial partners both in the United Kingdom
