As part of an on-going programme of investment and development, the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Cardiff University is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Earth Surface Processes.
The successful candidate should share our passion for high quality research and research-led teaching, contribute to a range of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching of Earth and Environmental Sciences. You will also supervise MSc and PhD thesis students.
The successful candidate will show evidence of ability to develop and sustain an internationally recognised, externally funded interdisciplinary research programme in Earth Surface Processes. A strong commitment to research aimed at helping address major societal problems is essential and an interest in emerging and developing countries is also desirable. Areas of interest may include process geomorphology, critical zone science, land surface modelling, vegetation responses and dynamics to climate, atmosphere-biosphere-geosphere interactions, fluxes and stores of water, energy, and carbon, and other topics pertaining to the interaction of climate change with the Earth’s surface. We are especially interested in hiring academics who can develop synergies within our existing research portfolio, including the Centre for Resilience and Environmental Change, and beyond.
The School of Earth and Environmental Sciences is a lively and dynamic community that aims to promote sustainability through education, dissemination, and direct participation, enabling students and staff to make positive changes to our environmental impact, in particular supporting Cardiff University’s declaration of a Climate Emergency and aim to become carbon neutral (Scopes 1 and 2) by 2030.
The School is also committed to promoting equality and diversity, including the Athena SWAN charter for promoting inclusive working practices in STEMM subjects in higher education. Staff and students from the School are active members of the global ‘Unlearning Racism in Geoscience (URGE)’ community. We particularly welcome female applicants and those from an ethnic minority, as they are under-represented within the School at these levels.
