We are seeking to appoint two high calibre scientists who will contribute to and enhance the research and teaching activities of the School’s Earth Surface Science research theme in one or more of the broad fields of catchment and river science; biogeosciences; and geo-archives of environmental change. At least one successful applicant is likely to have expertise in geo-spatial science.
Applications are invited for a permanent lectureship/senior lectureship in human geography which will enhance the research and teaching activities of the School of Geography and its internal and external collaborations. Applicants are invited from those whose research and teaching fits within the School’s Economy, Development and Social Justice research theme.
Applications are invited for the post of Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the School of Geography. The post-holder will work closely with Professor Alastair Owens during his term as Head of School and will be responsible for: (i) conducting research on Professor Owens’s project on the social and cultural history of Anglican vicarages in late twentieth-century urban Britain; and (ii) supporting Professor Owens’s other research activity and wider collaborative work with museums and other non-university partners.
The School of Geography will support a number of applications to the Leverhulme Trust’s Early Career Fellowships (ECF) scheme in the 2018 competition and is looking for expressions of interest from early-career researchers interested in working with us. The ECF programme offers an excellent source of funding for outstanding early-career researchers, who have not held a full-time permanent post in a UK university.
