Continuing the recent investment in the Department of Geography and Planning, we wish to recruit a Lecturer in Human Geography whose research strongly matches the current activity in the Power, Space and Cultural Change research group and connects to other research groups across the School of Environmental Sciences.

We are interested in your commitment to diversity and the future of the discipline of human geography as we are in your research and teaching. We are keen to appoint people not just based on their past achievements, but also on the potential they show for the future and we want to draw on the widest possible range of talents and backgrounds. We believe that a diverse and supportive environment, bringing difference perspectives to our work and allowing people to blossom is the best platform for cutting edge research and excellent teaching.

Applicants should demonstrate an ability to conduct relevant, internationally excellent research, would ideally have relevant experience in higher education teaching, and have a keen interest in developing interdisciplinary/cross-disciplinary links in research and teaching. Although not restrictive, we are particularly interested in attracting applicants with specialisms related to any of the following areas: the global south/majority world; post/de-colonial, critical race, and/or, inter-sectional feminist theories; critical understandings of development, diverse economies, and; participatory/grassroots/community/activist methodologies. Scholars who identify as BAME or who are from the majority world are particularly welcome.
