Welcome to the University of Glasgow

The James Watt School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow delivers world-class engineering education and research and has shaped the modern world through notable engineers such as James Watt and William Rankine. We aim to pioneer frontier technologies through our research, underpinning industrial innovation both today and tomorrow. Through our UK-based and international degree programmes, we aim to educate students with the analytical and creative skills to adapt, thrive and lead in an ever-changing world. The School is set to grow and receive major infrastructure investment, so this is a tremendous opportunity for emerging research leaders and World Changers to join us.

It is the University of Glasgow’s mission to foster an inclusive climate, which ensures equality in our working, learning, research and teaching environment. The James Watt School of Engineering strongly endorses the principles of Athena SWAN, including a supportive and flexible working environment, with commitment from all levels of the School in promoting gender equality.

We would therefore particularly welcome applications from women and other groups who are currently underrepresented in these positions in JWSE. Details of JWSE's Athena SWAN Award and activities can be found here.

The School’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Group is happy to answer questions from applicants on gender equality in representation, progression and success (Professor Cindy Smith: Cindy.Smith@glasgow.ac.uk or Debbie Goldie: Debbie.Goldie@glasgow.ac.uk).
