The School of Geography, Geology and the Environment is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Geoscience.

The successful candidate will have the potential to develop and/or maintain internationally competitive research, underpinned by publications and grant success.

You will also be expected to contribute to the delivery of our undergraduate programmes in Geology, Geoscience and MGeoscience as well as our MSc course in ‘Geoscience Research’ and may teach on other undergraduate and postgraduate degree pathways, as appropriate. You will have a higher degree in an area related to Quaternary Geology and will be able to demonstrate an ability to teach effectively and innovatively across a broad range of topics in geology, by enthusing and engaging students in order to deliver an excellent learning experience. You will be expected to contribute to the Geology/Geoscience field course programme.

You will join the growing and highly successful School of Geography, Geology and the Environment, which has a thriving, expanding Geology section that has a strong commitment to, and nationally leading reputation in, delivering high quality research and educational programmes in Geoscience.
