Tenure-track posts in Earth Observation, University of Leeds, UK

The School of Earth and Environment seeks to appoint two Academic Research 
Fellows to strengthen its research in Earth Observation of geohazards and the 
cryosphere.

Academic Research Fellowships are tenure-tracked positions, and provide an 
opportunity for researchers with outstanding potential to establish an 
independent academic career. Each fellowship lasts for five years with reduced 
teaching and administrative responsibilities, and there is an expectation that 
you will progress to an established academic post during this period. You will 
have an excellent research track record in Earth Observation of either 
geohazards (post 1) or the cryosphere (post 2), together with the vision and 
drive to develop a prestigious research portfolio.

Successful applicants will become members of either the Centre for the 
Observation and Modelling of Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tectonics (COMET; 
http://comet.nerc.ac.uk) or the Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling 
(CPOM; http://www.cpom.org). COMET and CPOM are Earth Observation research 
centres of excellence based at the University of Leeds and funded by the UK 
Natural Environment Research Council.  As a member of either centre, you will 
have the opportunity to direct activities of scientific and technical support 
staff, and you will be expected to work closely with our investigators based at 
Leeds and at other UK Universities to enhance the performance, stature and 
profile of our research.

Closing date for applications is 31st March 2014

Salary will be on University Grade 8 (£37,012- £44,166 p.a. )

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Tim Wright, Director of COMET 
(t.j.wright@leeds.ac.uk<mailto:t.j.wright@leeds.ac.uk>) or Professor Andy 
Shepherd, Director of CPOM 
(A.Shepherd@leeds.ac.uk<mailto:A.Shepherd@leeds.ac.uk>).
