Forwarded from CLIMLIST...

Dear Colleague,

The University of Birmingham is making a major strategic investment
across its research base in the School of Geography, Earth and
Environmental Sciences (<http://www.gees.bham.ac.uk/>) including three
new appointments to strengthen further and expand the expertise of the
Water Sciences research group.

The post in "Surface water environments and processes" may be of
particular interest to CLIMLIST subscribers because we are looking to
add to our expertise in hydroclimatology.

A short description of the post is provided below, with a full job
description available in PDF format:
<http://www.download.bham.ac.uk/vacancies/jd/14586.pdf>

The closing date for applications is 10 August 2011.

I would be pleased if you would draw this post to the attention of
potential applicants.

Best regards,
David

LECTURER/SENIOR LECTURER IN WATER SCIENCES: SURFACE WATER ENVIRONMENTS
AND PROCESSES (post reference 14586)
This appointment seeks to develop the Water Sciences research group's
capacity in the particular area of surface water environments and
processes. It is expected that the successful candidate will have
expertise in one or more of: surface water hydrology, hydroclimatology
(climate-hydrology interactions), macro-scale hydrology, and/ or river
catchment processes. Potential to link with our research strengths in
hydroecology and/or biogeochemistry would be considered favourably. The
appointee will have technical skills to deliver innovative science by
using state-of-the- art methods (e.g. numerical modelling, remote
sensing, statistical tools, laboratory and/or field experimentation).

In addition to demonstrating a track record of, or potential for,
internationally excellent research, applicants must have a commitment to
delivering high quality teaching and learning in physical geography and
the environmental sciences at all levels (i.e. undergraduate,
postgraduate, and higher research degrees). The successful candidates
will be involved in administrative tasks (appropriate to their
appointment grade) to support delivery of research and teaching within
the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Science
