Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia - Department of Geography and Planning

An excellent opportunity for a Lecturer with a strong profile of teaching and research to join the Department of Geography and Planning at Macquarie University.

Join Macquarie and start seeing the world in a different light!

Department of Geography and Planning within the Faculty of Arts at Macquarie University was established in January 2015 and brings together the disciplines of Human Geography and Urban Planning. The Department has a strong interdisciplinary approach to the relationship between people and the social, environmental, cultural, economic and political processes shaping our everyday places and landscapes.

Our research is largely inspired by critical social theory and is eminently committed to social justice. Many of our projects are international in nature and aim at a geographical understanding of major contemporary social, political and cultural questions. Our empirical work implies a direct engagement with people and communities and is deliberately inclusive in its methodologies and in the recognition of the co-production of all knowledge.  

Current research in the department includes major projects in Indigenous knowledges, more-than-human geographies, biopolitics and geopolitics, environmental humanities, global environmental change and justice, social dimensions of climate change, urban regeneration and housing, urban political ecology, digital geographies, tourism and refugee mobilities, camp and carceral geographies.

Successful applicants will be expected to make a significant contribution to the vibrant research agenda of the department and to develop, teach and supervise undergraduate and postgraduate coursework. Priority will be given to applicants with a strong international publication record in the discipline and with experience in teaching at all levels.
