Three new exciting opportunities for engineering and manufacturing experts are being advertised at WMG, University of Warwick, including Regius Professor of Manufacturing – which was last held by the late founder of WMG Professor Lord Bhattacharyya.
The three engineering and manufacturing roles being advertised at WMG, University of Warwick are:
1. Regius Professor of Manufacturing
2. Professor (Research Director) in developing WMG’s research strategy
3. Associate Professor or Reader in Future Mobility
The Associate Professor or Reader in Future Mobility will focus on Intelligent Vehicles research, exploring ways to move people and goods around in a safer, more efficient and environmentally friendly way.
WMG is partnered with many local businesses, keeping the West Midlands at the forefront of autonomous vehicle research, and this new Associate Professor or Reader will be working with Government and industry funded projects to exploit new ideas and technologies to look beyond traditional, infrastructure-heavy approaches to transport, and create innovative ways to improve vehicles and make journeys better and accessible to all.
The Professor (Research Director) will lead the development of WMG’s research strategy and provide academic leadership in their chosen field, to keep WMG at the forefront of innovation in research, education and knowledge transfer activities.
Finally the Regius Professor of Manufacturing which was bestowed by Her Majesty the Queen in 2016 was held by the founder of WMG the late Professor Lord Bhattacharyya. As WMG enters its 40th year in 2020 an exceptional researcher is sought to shape the future of manufacturing.
Professor David Mullins, Interim Head of WMG at the University of Warwick comments:
“WMG is at the forefront of research and innovation. As a key element of our future strategy and leadership, we are recruiting three senior engineering and manufacturing specialists with a passion and exemplary research and impact track record in areas from electrification and intelligent vehicles, to advanced manufacturing and materials, health and wellbeing and cyber security.”

Grad jobs are now being advertised at WMG, University of Warwick. There are 13 jobs available starting September 2019, which will be working on projects such as Automation Systems, Energy Innovation and Smart Connected and Autonomous Vehicles.
The closing date to apply is the 15th March 2019.
Following the successful launch of the WMG Graduate Development Programme last year, WMG has launched recruitment for its 2019 graduate programme, with 13 places available to graduates from all Higher Education Institutes.
The programme is designed for aspiring engineers and follows three pathways – Automation Systems, Energy Innovation and Smart Connected and Autonomous Vehicles. The Graduate Trainee’s will be working alongside academics, and industry partners.
Starting in September 2019, the programme will last for two years during which graduates will complete five/six different placements, each offering the opportunity to develop their engineering skills and knowledge in key areas, with the chance to apply these skills to real-world research and development.
On completion of the scheme, the graduates will be equipped with the skills to apply for roles such as a Project Engineer or Project Manager, or pave the way for future studies such as a Master’s or PhD.
"There is so much support offered here, not just from your peers, but from your mentors and managers too. There are regular discussions on how you can develop and enhance your skills and knowledge to steer your career in your chosen direction. There is such a variety of opportunities offered, such as the chance to attend professional conferences, as well as gaining a project management qualification. Progression and development is at the heart of the organisations culture and it really shows.”
WMG Graduate Trainee Engineer Ben Ayre, also joined the scheme last year following his graduation from the University of Warwick.
“My highlights so far have included working on multi mullion pound projects with a variety of organisations to achieve real impact. I’ve also had the opportunity to undertake professional development courses and qualifications. It has also been great to have the support of the other graduates, making the transition between university and work life easier. I would advise anyone who is wants to work in a varied team working on lots of cutting edge projects to apply as it is an excellent scheme.”
Trainees benefit from a training salary of £26,243 a year.

WMG has welcomed its first cohort on to its new bespoke graduate development programme.
Over the next two years, the first cohort of nine graduates will have the chance to develop their engineering skills in these key areas and will have the chance to apply these skills to real-world research and development.
Six members of our team have been recognised for their hard work and commitment at the Warwick Long Service Awards 2017.
Maddie Langeveld, David Mullins, Kevin Fielding, Nigel Brennan, Andrea Latham and Anita Taak were all honoured at a special awards ceremony hosted by Stuart Croft, Vice-Chancellor and President of the University of Warwick.
Maddie, our Teaching and Learning Manager, who is celebrating 20 years here, said: “I’ve officially had around eight different job descriptions in my time at Warwick and there are new challenges regularly which keep things interesting. I also love how paths cross with colleagues every few years, it’s always nice to catch up with someone you have worked with previously, and to find out where their career has taken them.”
The continued success and growth of WMG at the University of Warwick, means that we are now looking for almost 200 new recruits to join our team. The search is on to find engineers, researchers, project managers, data analysts, software developers, and technicians.
To help with our search we’ll be holding a recruitment open day at our International Digital Laboratory at the University of Warwick on Saturday 16 September. On the day attendees will have the chance to tour our world-class research facilities, and staff from our various research areas will be on hand to explain what it’s really like working at WMG. There will also be the chance to join a tour of our state-of-the-art research facilities to check out the sort of projects you could work on.
With a whole range of vacancies coming up, including engineers, researchers, technicians, project managers and administrative roles, there's never been a better time to see what we're all about.
WMG at the University of Warwick will be holding a Recruitment Open Day on Saturday 16 September, for prospective job seekers to find out more about their current vacancies.
With a whole range of vacancies coming up, including research, technical and project management roles, the Open Day is intended to give potential applicants an insight into what it's really like to work there.
In July our SME team welcomed a group of interns as part of the 2017 Summer Internship Programme. They are working with local SMEs on a range of projects covering design and manufacture, tool development, electronics, materials testing and characterisation, and lean methodologies.
Over the past five years, we have delivered 110 internship projects and will deliver another 25 as part of this year’s programme. The interns work alongside our team of experts, giving them valuable work experience, and in turn our SMEs get to work with talented up and coming undergraduates, and access to the state-of-the-art research facilities at the University of Warwick.
If your company is interested in our Internships Programme contact Jen Manerova, Internships Officer, on 02476 523 776 or email: email@example.com for more details.
Part funded by the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, WMG’s SME group at the University of Warwick has been delivering this internship scheme since 2010, with over 120 businesses so far benefiting from a range of impactful outcomes.
The scheme encourages students studying STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects to consider careers in the manufacturing supply chain. Coupled with this, it supports SME manufacturers to increase productivity by embedding new technologies and processes into their businesses for minimal cost (£2000 per 8-week project).
