Meeting global challenges in water security are central to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The University seeks to strengthen its contribution to the research evidence base needed to achieve this by appointing a highly motivated, research-focused Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Global Hydrology/Hydrogeology and Water Security.

This position will primarily enhance existing research excellence in the School of Geosciences through high profile publications and impactful research resourced from externally-funded projects. The aim is to build on existing expertise in the School through large scale hydrological/hydrogeological modelling with an explicit link to water security issues. This is aligned with the University’s institutional commitment to directing its research profile towards interdisciplinary challenge-orientated research. Consequently, the successful candidate is likely to have, or rapidly develop, strong international orientation to their research.

You will have a PhD in hydrology, hydrogeology or a related area of water resource science/engineering. You will have a commitment to developing this through challenge-orientated research projects in collaboration with other staff in the Northern River Institute and elsewhere in the University.

Your research will have strong applied orientation to understanding and solving water security problems at larger regional or international scales. You will be committed to delivering impactful research that is publicised through outreach activities. You will be team player able to lead and participate in larger, complex interdisciplinary research projects.

For appointment made at Lecturer level, salary will be at the appropriate point on the Grade 7 salary scale (£41,526 - £49,552 per annum).
