Are you interested in becoming a researcher that contributes to the cutting edge of
knowledge in the field of Mechanical Engineering? Are you inspired by facilitating the
learning of others so that they can apply their knowledge back into the field of
Mechanical Engineering, which deals with the sub-disciplines of design,
thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, solid mechanics, dynamics,
mechatronics, manufacturing and materials science? Do you want to grow into an
academic and researcher in this exciting field? If your answer is yes, then we would
like to offer you an exciting opportunity, in collaboration with the Department of Higher
