Assistant Professor in Human Geography
Posted: 10/17/2017 (Employment)
This is an exciting opportunity to appoint outstanding individuals to three Assistant Professorships in Human Geography whose work will complement and extend the current work in any one (or more) of our research clusters (Economy and Culture; Geographies of Life; Politics – State – Space; Urban Worlds). We are looking for first-rate scholars in their field and we encourage work that develops a range of theoretical, conceptual and/or methodological approaches. Work with relevance to the topics of the Global Challenges identified by RCUK would be an advantage and we anticipate that one post will offer expertise in Geographic Information Systems.
Successful candidates will have a PhD in a relevant field, and demonstrate a track record of, or potential for, internationally excellent and world class agenda setting publications and securing external funding. They will show a commitment to delivering excellent teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, the highest quality supervision to research postgraduates, and will be expected to contribute to undergraduate and masters-level teaching. In addition to their research, the successful candidates will perform departmental administrative tasks commensurate with their grade and contribute to our wider human geography teaching programme.
The closing date for applications is October 27, 2017. Successful applicants will, ideally, be in post by September 1, 2018. Please direct informal enquiries to Professor Cheryl McEwan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
