  • Infrastructure Lead Engineer (Audio Visual)

    Code: (IT0077)

    The recent pandemic has driven a significant change in the way that teaching sessions and general meetings are delivered across the University of Hull.  There is now much more of a likelihood that some attendees will be online and some will be physically together in a traditional meeting or lecture room rather than everyone either being online or everyone being ‘in person’.  As a result of this the ICT Department’s Field Services team has an exciting opportunity for you to consider as a Lead Engineer, as it seeks to renew and refresh its audio-visual technology and infrastructure in response to the changing environment and needs of the University community

    We are looking for a highly motivated team player with a positive and enthusiastic attitude. The successful candidate will play an important role in the provision and support of AV and IT services across the University. The post holder will contribute to the efficient operation of the ICT Field Services team within Infrastructure Services and will be primarily involved in the provision of audio-visual services that support teaching, research, meetings and campus events.  The role will involve system design, maintenance, fault diagnostics, fault recovery and user support for all audio-visual equipment used on our main University Campus and associated satellite sites such as the Aura Innovation Centre and the Wilberforce Institute for Emancipation and Slavery in the Old Town.

    Previous experience with Crestron and Extron AV systems would be highly beneficial although training will be provided as required.

    Along with the audio-visual responsibilities the post holder will also be required to assist the team in providing 2nd line IT support.  This will require excellent levels of customer service and involve triaging and adding diagnostic value to support calls assigned to the team whilst monitoring progress against support requests and the provision of timely and effective customer feedback.

    The University is introducing an ‘Agile’ working policy so, whilst the University campus will be your contractual place of work and you will be required to attend campus for defined activities, there will also be opportunities to adopt an element of agile working, for example some flexibility of working hours or location, within defined parameters and with the agreement of your line manager.

    To discuss this role informally, please contact Kev Close, Infrastructure Services Lead Engineer: e-mail k.m.close@hull.ac.uk

  • Research Assistant in Psychology

    Code: (HS0694)

    We are seeking a part-time (0.4 FTE) research assistant to join our research team within the Department of Psychology, University of Hull. The post is available for a fixed term of 8 months. 

    The post-holder will join a team of researchers working on a project investigating future thinking and depression, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The post holder will work alongside a Post-Doctoral Research Associate, under the supervision of the grant holders, Dr Rachel Anderson (PI), Professor Steve Dewhurst and Professor Kevin Riggs.

    This is an experimental project investigating the usefulness of episodic simulation as a training tool to modify how individuals (non-depressed and depressed) think and feel about the future and involves data collection from both student and clinical populations. The research assistant will work closely with the research associate to recruit participants and conduct the necessary experiments. It is expected that suitable candidates should have prior experience of conducting cognitive/experimental psychological research and a knowledge of cognitive theories relevant to mental health (particularly depression). Knowledge of research in human memory/future thinking, experience programming experimental studies and previous work experience with clinical/vulnerable populations would all be advantageous for prospective applicants.

  • Post Doctoral Researcher in Fibre Optic Sensors for Composite Manufacturing Monitoring

    Code: (FS0626)

    EPSRC funded research project led by the University of Hull with University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) and with support from Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy

    The manufacture of large composite structures, such as wind turbine blades, involves complex mechano-thermo-chemical processes which occur during resin infusion and curing. Instrumentation to monitor the process is challenging because of the large physical size of the components, the difficulty of accessing the interior of the mould, the need to maintain structural integrity of the structures produced and the large number of measurands of interest. We have demonstrated fibre optic sensors that are able to individually monitor key process parameters.  We have now received funding from EPSRC to investigate how these sensors can be integrated into arrays, for simultaneous real time monitoring of multiple parameters at many measurement points. 

    We are seeking to appoint 2 postdoctoral researchers to work as part of the larger research team to investigate:

    Post 1 will be responsible for the integration and evaluation of individual sensors and sensor bundles using combinations of Fibre Bragg Gratings and Long Period Gratings to monitor measurands including temperature, strain, resin flow rate and degree of cure. This will involve simulation and experimental trials of gradually increasing complexity. The performance of sensor bundles and associated calibration and signal processing will be evaluated for a range of novel materials to support the sector’s transition to more sustainable production. 

    Post 2 will focus on the interrogation of sensor bundles and the calibration and signal processing to disaggregate measurands. They will also consider the interconnection of sensor bundles into arrays including optimal use of the optical bandwidth; the use of time domain multiplexing and mesh configurations to asses which configurations give defined levels of robustness to damage. 

    The research team has an extensive track record of research into monitoring complex manufacturing processes and strong links to the offshore wind industry through EPSRC programmes: Prosperity Partnership: A New Partnership in Offshore Wind, The Supergen Offshore Renewable Energy Hub and the Aura Centre for Doctoral Training in Offshore Wind Energy and the Environment. The team is based in the Department of Engineering at the university of Hull but draws on expertise in the Department of Physics and Mathematics and the Energy and Environment Institute. This project will be carried out in collaboration with composites manufacturing experts at the University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre with support from Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy – the world’s largest manufacturer of offshore wind turbines.

    Applicants should hold a PhD or equivalent in a relevant subject and have research experience in the application of fibre optic sensing systems and signal processing, including recent high quality publications on relevant topics. 

    The terms of the grant funding require that employment commences no later than 31 December 2022.

    To discuss the roles informally, please contact Prof James Gilbert: j.m.gilbert@hull.ac.uk

    For information about the department visit Department of Engineering | University of Hull

    We are committed to family-friendly and flexible working policies on an individual basis, and follow the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice undertaken to address gender equality in higher education and research.
