Applications are invited for a Grade 7/8 lectureship (Teaching & Research) in Physical Geography in Biological and Environmental Sciences (BES).
Within BES, we provide a deep-time, science-based perspective on contemporary environmental issues through new understandings of the complex relationships between long-term environmental change, human adaptations and resilience embedded in landscapes. We seek to appoint a physical geographer with specific expertise in the area of environmental hazards, risk mitigation, geomorphology and/or environmental resilience. Rapid changes in our environment are leading to elevated levels of risk due to unsustainable exploitation of resources, increased frequency and magnitude of extreme climatic events and greater exposure to non-climatic risks such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions through development of previously marginally habitable land driven by demographic and economic pressures. This new appointment will complement existing BES staff working on water and energy security to form a nexus of staff focussing on capacity building and resilience to rapid environmental changes across the globe.
