UEA is advertising for an ATR Lecturer in Natural Hazards. 

Details are at <https://www.uea.ac.uk/hr/vacancies/academic/-/asset_publisher/h0n2rDvu3ug8/content/lecturer-in-physical-geography-of-natural-hazards>

The University of East Anglia invites applications for a Lectureship in the Physical Geography of Natural Hazards in the School of Environmental Sciences.  Candidates will have developed strong expertise in a field of geophysical hazards research and will be excited by the opportunity to develop their research interests in the rich interdisciplinary environment the School offers. The post-holder will be expected to develop an innovative and internationally recognised research programme, making an important contribution to the physical understanding of natural hazards; and will also have a keen interest in deploying this knowledge in an applied context and the societal impacts associated with hazardous events. 

 

In addition, skills in mathematical modelling and/or spatial information systems and the analysis of spatial data are desirable.  With a keen interest in developing excellent teaching the post-holder will contribute to advanced level teaching in geophysics. This will include field teaching and support for the School’s BSc programmes in Environmental Geophysics, Environmental Earth Sciences, Geography, Environmental Sciences, and Meteorology and Oceanography.

A PhD in Geophysics, Earth Sciences or a closely allied and appropriate subject is required and applicants must fulfil all essential elements of the person specification.

This post is available from 1 August 2016, on a full-time indefinite basis. 

We particularly welcome applications from suitably qualified female academics as they are currently under-represented in senior positions within the School.
