The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at UCL is recognized as one of the leading Departments for research in its subject area, worldwide. Current research areas in the Department include Communications and Information Systems; Electronic Materials and Devices (including Nanotechnology); Optical Communications & Networks; Photonics and Sensors, Systems and Circuits. The Department also has an extensive teaching programme, both at undergraduate (BEng and MEng) and Masters levels. Further information about the Department can be found at  

To further enhance and shape the future of research in Electronic and Electrical Engineering at one of the leading and most prestigious Universities in the UK, the Department wishes to make three appointments at Lecturer level.

For these appointments, we seek candidates with research experience in:

  1. Optical communications – spanning all areas from optical networks design, through to high-speed digital transmission and advanced optical sub-systems/devices, to join the Optical Networks Group. Areas we would like to expand include experimental aspects of future, optical fibre transmission systems for long-haul and access applications, intelligent optical network architectures, nonlinear optics, information theory and machine learning for all aspects of optical communications.



   2.  RF/Microwave Electronics, radar systems, antennas, microelectronics design, RF Sensors or control engineering, to join the Sensors, Systems and Circuits Group. A personal vision and commitment to grow interdisciplinary research activity as required to support the Group’s ambitions to work across disciplines in areas related to Security, RF Sensing, Healthcare, the Environment and Robotics is particularly important for this role.

Applicants should have an excellent track record and experience of carrying out internationally-leading research, an outstanding publications record, and a demonstrated ability (or potential) for obtaining financial support necessary for research at the highest international level. Track record of international collaborations, IP generation and industrial experience are all assets for these positions.  

The ability to inspire students (both undergraduate and post graduate) and research staff to achieve their full potential is also of great importance to us.

These are full-time, open-ended positions and we expect the successful candidate to take up the position from 1 January 2018, or as soon as possible thereafter. Interviews are expected to take place in October 2017, and we will inform unsuccessful candidates around the same time.
