This full-time post is available from 1 August 2022 (or as soon as possible thereafter) on a permanent basis.
The University of Exeter is seeking to appoint a Lecturer / Senior Lecturer within the Centre for Rural Policy Research (CRPR) in the Department of Sociology, Philosophy and Anthropology (SPA).
The CRPR works on a broad range of issues related to agriculture, land use and environmental stewardship, and food from farm to fork. Current research includes work on: farmer livelihoods in the wake of Brexit and the ongoing restructuring of agricultural markets; sustainable land use and natural resource management in the context of climate change and diminishing biodiversity; science, technology and innovation in farming and the food trade; wellbeing and community resilience in a changing countryside; farming, food and cultural heritage; healthy, sustainable diets for the 21st century; and food security, poverty and food justice. Candidates with interests in these and related areas are encouraged to apply.
In addition to undertaking research that strengthens the CRPR’s research portfolio, the appointee will also contribute to teaching on existing modules in the areas of food and farming at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels as required, as well as supervising PhD researchers.
You will be joining an interdisciplinary Department that has an outstanding international reputation. SPA was submitted to the Sociology review panel in the 2014 REF, and placed 4th nationally (when power is taken into account; 100% of research staff were submitted). This is a testament to the Department’s vibrant and strongly inter- and trans-disciplinary research culture.
