University of Aberdeen 
School of Geosciences 
Lecturer in Environmental Seismology 
REF: GEO366A 


The University seeks to expand its research and teaching capabilities by appointing a highly motivated Lecturer in Environmental Seismology.  
This position will primarily enhance existing research excellence in the School of Geosciences through high profile publications and high-impact research resourced from external funding. The aim is to build on existing expertise in the School through geophysical monitoring approaches with an explicit link to environmental 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, a strong international orientation to their research. This broad remit would apply at both Lecturer and Senior Lecturer levels, though the expected levels of experience and achievement would be greater for the latter.

The successful candidate will have an outstanding emerging or existing research profile in environmental geophysics with a commitment to publication in leading international scientific journals, and a PhD in geophysics or a related area of geo/environmental science/engineering. The successful candidate will have a commitment to developing their research profile through challenge-orientated research projects in collaboration with other staff in the School of Geosciences and across the University. Their research will have a strong applied orientation to understanding and solving environmental problems at various scales. The appointee will be committed to delivering high-impact research, publicised through outreach activities and will be a team player able to lead and participate in larger, complex interdisciplinary research projects.

Salary will be at the appropriate point on the Grade 7 salary scale (£40,792 - £48,676 per annum) and negotiable with placement according to qualifications and experience.

Any appointment will be made subject to satisfactory references and a 3 year probation period.
