Lecturer in Climate Change

School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Cardiff University




Vacancy Number: 13531BR

As part of an on-going programme of investment and development to address pressing global challenges, the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Cardiff University is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Climate Change.

You should share our passion for high quality interdisciplinary research-led learning and teaching and be able to contribute to a range of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching of Earth and Environmental Sciences. You will also supervise MSc and PhD students.

The successful candidate will demonstrate an ability to conduct and sustain an internationally recognised, externally funded, interdisciplinary research programme within the broad topic of climate change commensurate with the level of appointment. A strong commitment to research aimed at helping address major societal problems is essential, particularly with emphasis on the sustainable development goals (SDGs). Areas of interest may include any interdisciplinary aspects of climate change science, including, but not restricted to, climate change impacts, mitigation, adaptation, risk and resilience. An interest in emerging and developing countries is also desirable. We are especially interested in appointing academics who can develop synergies within our existing research portfolio, including the Centre for Resilience and Environmental Change, and beyond.

The School of Earth and Environmental Sciences is lively and dynamic community that aims to promote sustainability through education, dissemination, and direct participation, enabling students and staff to make positive changes to our environmental impact, in particular supporting Cardiff University's declaration of a Climate Emergency and aim to become carbon neutral (Scopes 1 and 2) by 2030.

The School is also committed to promoting equality and diversity, including the Athena SWAN charter for promoting inclusive working practices in STEMM subjects in higher education. Staff and students from the School are active members of the global 'Unlearning Racism in Geoscience (URGE)' community. We particularly welcome female applicants and those from an ethnic minority, as they are under-represented within the School at these levels.

The position is full-time, (35 hours per week) available immediately and is open-ended.

The appointments will be made, dependent on relevant qualification and experience within the following grade bands:

Lecturer Salary:
£34,304 - £40,927 per annum (Grade 6) or
£43,434 - £50,296 per annum (Grade 7)
