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 and worldwide.
