We seek to appoint an Associate Professor of Climate and Earth Surface Processes no later than 31 July 2020. The successful candidate will work at the Department of Earth Sciences and will hold a Non-tutorial Fellowship at University College. The appointment will be initially for 5 years at which point, upon completion of a successful review, the postholder will be eligible for reappointment to the retiring age.
We welcome applications from scientists working in all quantitative aspects of climate science and Earth surface processes, in particular those focused on interactions between the fluid and solid components of Earth’s surface. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) greenhouse gas processes, causes and consequences of rising sea level, carbon cycling, land surface processes affecting climate, water–rock interactions, weathering, evolution of the cryosphere, and scientific questions surrounding the use of Earth resources for climate solutions. The appointee will apply innovative and/or advanced techniques to the study of this important zone at Earth’s surface in order to better understand its role in past, present and future environmental and climatic change.
The successful candidate will have a doctorate in Earth Sciences, Physical Climate or a closely related subject; evidence of a substantial and realisable research plan; the ability to teach effectively at an undergraduate and graduate level including in the field; excellent interpersonal skills; and an ability to attract research funding. The appointee will be a Fellow of University College and will provide support to Earth Science Tutorial Fellows and students within the College.
