Full Time Permanent (x2) and Fixed-Term (x2) positions in Physical Geography / Environmental Sciences, University of Birmingham UK

Nick Barrand
The University of Birmingham is continuing to make strategic investments across its research base in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences. As part of a significant investment in Geography / Environmental Sciences, we are now seeking to appoint two full time permanent research and teaching staff at Lecturer or Senior Lecturer level (equivalent to Assistant and Associate Professor) in Physical Geography, and two 5-year fixed-term posts at Lecturer or Senior Lecturer level in Geography (Human or Physical Geography).

The posts are open to all fields of the discipline, but applications from candidates with Cryospheric interests are strongly encouraged. The successful candidates will join the Physical Geography Research Group, which has core research strengths in Glaciology, Ecohydrology, Biogeochemistry, Biogeography, Fluvial Geomorphology, Wetland and Forest Hydrology, Hydro-Climatology and Sociohydrology. The successful candidate for the fixed-term posts will join either the Human or Physical Geography Research Groups.
