Department of Geography and Sustainable Development - Geography and Geosciences.
Lectureships (2) in Environmental Geography - Salary: £37,012 – £45,486 per annum
As the first stage of a new programme of strategic staff investment, and building on existing strengths in environmental management and sustainable development, the Department of Geography and Sustainable Development (DGSD) wishes to appoint to two Lectureships in environmental geography. We seek applications from candidates with, or who are close to achieving, a PhD in natural, field-based science, with expertise in understanding human impacts on natural processes and resources, and who are committed to supporting integrative research and teaching in geography and sustainable development that operates across social and natural science boundaries. We expect the appointees to work closely with social science colleagues in human geography and sustainable development, including the newly established Centre for Geo-Informatics, in order to provide a comprehensive capacity to understand the risks to resilient, self-reliant and sustainable communities posed by anthropogenic environmental change. Applications from those interested in exploring with social science colleagues the policy and behaviour change implications of the use (misuse) of natural resources are particularly welcome.
