Description: 

We now seek to appoint a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography, depending on qualifications, track record, and experience. This full-time post is available on a permanent basis. This post is being advertised simultaneously with a second, more senior appointment in Physical Geography. The post will be based at the Streatham Campus, Exeter.

Physical Geography at Exeter is diverse and leading-edge. Our work is influential in shaping research agendas in fields that include soil and peatland carbon dynamics, ecosystem functioning in tropical forests, soil erosion and landscape restoration, river and floodplain processes, ice sheet and glacier dynamics, past and future climate change, and coastal and marine ecosystems and processes. We invite applications from candidates able to demonstrate how their current work and future ambitions would extend our current areas of research, teaching, and external engagement. For this post, we especially welcome applications from those with expertise that extends our interests in the fields of glacial, coastal, or river catchment science.

Lecturer applicants will hold a PhD or equivalent in physical geography and will be developing an independent, internationally-recognised research programme. Applicants will be able to demonstrate a strong record in attracting research funding, or demonstrable potential to attract such funding; teamwork skills to work in collaboration; and an active and supportive approach to inter-disciplinary research that will help to foster interactions and links both within the University and with external partners and industry. For appointment at Senior Lecturer level, in addition to the above, applicants must be able to demonstrate a strong potential for research leadership; a strong track record in refereed publications; proven success in significant grant capture; and relationships with external organisations and funders. Appointments at all levels will be expected to enhance the student experience at Exeter through sustained contributions to our taught degree programmes.
