The Faculty of Spatial Sciences at the University of Groningen is looking for an Assistant Professor in Physical Geography. The Faculty of Spatial Sciences consists of approximately 100 members of staff, 100 PhD students and around 1000 undergraduate students. We focus on high quality teaching and research in the fields of social and economic geography, demography, and spatial planning. With a single collective research theme of 'towards Wellbeing, Innovation and Spatial Transformation' (tWIST), it is our mission to produce research which is world-leading, distinctive, and policy-relevant. With two bachelor and eight master programmes, we provide a wide range of courses within the fields of geography and spatial sciences.
The Department of Cultural Geography contributes to the bachelor programmes of Human Geography & Planning and Spatial Planning & Design, and the master programmes of Cultural Geography and Tourism Geography & Planning. The Department’s research is centred around issues of place, identity and wellbeing. In particular, we explore the relations between people and place, and the social experience of transformations in rural and regional communities around the globe. We continuously renew our research and educational programmes, for example by incorporating innovative digital developments.
As an Assistant Professor you will contribute to teaching, research and management tasks. Your main teaching tasks will be in bachelor and master courses related to physical geography and in supervising master and/or bachelor theses. To strengthen our team, we are looking for an interdisciplinary physical geographer who can make connections between physical geography and cultural landscapes, environmental management, land use planning, sense of place, and related topics.
