Lectureship in Geographies and Global Health - AC2141ML

University of St Andrews - School of Geography and Sustainable Development

Start Date: Negotiable, as soon as possible

The School of Geography and Sustainable Development is seeking to appoint a suitably-qualified person to a new lectureship in geographies of global health, building on recent appointments in human geography and on-going collaborations with the School of Medicine. We are looking for a global health scholar with interests and expertise in any aspect of global health geography, but preference may be given to candidates whose research uses qualitative, quantitative and/or mixed methods. Candidates will be expected to have a track record of research in the global South and a commitment to interdisciplinary work.

The School has a very active research culture and commitment to research that ‘makes a difference’ in terms of wider social impact and engagement with stakeholders. The candidate will be affiliated to one or both of two research groups: ‘Geographies of Space, Sustainability, Inequality and Possibility’, a vibrant new group of critical human geographers and sustainability scholars and the well established ‘Population and Health’ group, one of the largest groups in the UK. The School has a very successful one-year taught MSc in Sustainable Development and currently contributes to the MSc in Global Health Implementation run by the School of Medicine. The person appointed to this post will carry out teaching duties in these courses as well as in our highly competitive undergraduate programmes.

Applications are particularly welcome from women, who are under-represented in Science posts at the University.

The University is committed to equality for all, demonstrated through our working on diversity awards (ECU Athena SWAN/Race Charters; Carer Positive; LGBT Charter; and Stonewall).  More details can be found at http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/hr/edi/diversityawards/.

Informal enquiries to: Professor William Austin, Head of School (gsd@st-andrews.ac.uk); Professor Nina Laurie; (nina.laurie@st-andrews.ac.uk) Professor Hill Kulu (hk49@st-andrews.ac.uk).
