The Centre for Innovative and Collaborative Construction Engineering (CICE), at Loughborough University, is looking to recruit three Research Engineers to work on an exciting new partnership with High Speed Two Ltd (HS2).
This is an exciting and unique opportunity to play a key part in ensuring HS2 is one of the world’s most technologically advanced railways, developing innovations which will help in the design, delivery and operation of the project – via our renowned Engineering Doctorate (EngD) programme.
Each four-year post covers a core strand that aligns both with HS2’s priorities and key research strengths at the University. The three posts will focus on:
1. Enabling long-term resource efficiency in infrastructure projects
2. Capture and monitoring using HS2 service train imagery
3. Innovations in the construction quality of track-bed and geotechnical assets
The successful applicants will be predominantly based at HS2’s Birmingham head office, but with some meetings and training held at Loughborough’s School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering.

Applicants will need a minimum of a 2:1 degree (or equivalent) with a background relevant to the individual project, and excellent communication and IT skills. A relevant Master’s degree and/or employment experience would also be desirable.
Each studentship is for four years and starts on 1 October 2018. The studentship provides a starting minimum tax-free stipend of £19,277 per annum (2017/18 rates – the stipend will rise in line with the level set by the RCUK) plus tuition fees at the UK/EU rate. The stipend may be higher for more experienced graduates. These studentships are only open to UK/EU applicants.
