An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Lecturer or Associate Professor to join the School of Environmental Sciences to plan, teach and assess appropriate topics at undergraduate and postgraduate level and to support inclusive education and widening access and participation of students from underrepresented & disadvantaged groups.
Areas of subject expertise should include any areas of environmental sciences, physical or human geography, geology, and ecology. The School is broadly based and delivers undergraduate programmes that span physical, chemical, biological and social science aspects of the environment.
