Teaching Fellow in Human Geography (Fixed Term)

Applications are invited for a Teaching Fellow in Human Geography with a particular emphasis on social and political geographies of risk and resilience, including those relevant to any one or combination of natural hazards and climate change, financial risk, human security, or infrastructure. The ability to teach research methods in human geography will be an advantage.

Teaching Fellowships offer the opportunity of valuable experience to those early in their academic careers and the University is keen to maximise the benefit to as many people as possible. The post of Teaching Fellow will involve a significant teaching load, which may extend into the summer period, and there may be related scholarship and the opportunity for administrative duties which relate to education and pedagogy.

Successful applicants will, ideally be in post by 1 January 2020, or as soon as possible thereafter.

The post is for a fixed term only, and it is not anticipated that the post will be extended beyond this fixed term which will end on 31 December 2020.

For informal enquiries please contact Professor Mike Bentley, Head of Department +44(0)191-334-1859, m.j.bentley@durham.ac.uk. All enquiries will be treated in the strictest confidence.
