Geography at Durham consistently ranks among the very best departments not just in the UK, but also in the world. We were graded top for research power in REF 2014 and our students report satisfaction levels of 95% in the National Student Survey. From the field to the virtual environment, we are dedicated to exploring innovative methodologies. As a Professor in Human Geography, you will provide leadership in both research and teaching. Your world-leading, world-changing scholarship will complement and significantly extend the work in one or more of our core research clusters: Economy and Culture; Geographies of Life; Politics - State - Space; Urban Worlds. You will benefit from our commitment to ensure that you have one year in five free to focus on research, which will in turn deepen your exceptional standards of teaching and supervision.

Youll need:

  • A good first-degree, complemented by a PhD in Geography or a related subject (either completed, or currently in progress).
  • A track record of producing world-class research in the field of human geography, including a research plan which supports and enhances the activities of the department.
  • A proven ability to lead national or international research groups and networks, and to mentor early career researchers.
  • Experience of contributing significantly to the development of PhD programmes and the recruitment and excellent supervision of PhD students.
  • Ideas to develop successful research project proposals, with the scope to secure funding or generate income and potential to make a far-reaching impact.
  • Experience of leading and delivering high-quality and distinctive teaching across lectures, smaller study groups and research-based field trips, with HEA status.
