Lectureship in Physical Geography

The Department of Geography wishes to appoint a suitably qualified scholar to a 
University Lectureship in Physical Geography from 1 October 2017, or as soon as 
possible thereafter. 

The Department of Geography is a friendly scholastic community with 
wide-ranging research interests spanning the physical and social sciences and 
the humanities. This opportunity follows two recent professorial appointments 
in physical geography.

We seek to recruit a dynamic and collegial individual who will have strong 
research interests and expertise in the linkages between climatological, 
ecological and Earth surface processes. We encourage applications from 
researchers developing and combining the analysis of natural proxy archives, 
field or experimental methods, data mining and/or numerical model simulations 
to further our understanding of the dynamics and evolution of Earth systems, 
including within coupled human-environmental systems. The successful candidate 
will develop significant interactions within one or more of the thematic 
research groups in physical geography, which bring together staff, postdoctoral 
research associates and PhD students – Biogeography and Biogeomorphology; 
Climate and Environment Dynamics; and Glaciology and Glacial Geology – and will 
explore linkages with other researchers in the Department, the University, and 
more widely.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD in an appropriate area, a developing 
record of high quality research publications and experience of, or clear 
potential for, winning research grants. S/he will be expected to teach and 
examine on the undergraduate programme in Geography (including field courses, 
laboratory classes and quantitative methods), and to contribute to graduate 
research training. S/he will contribute, as appropriate, to the academic 
administration of the Department and the University.
