Applications are invited for the post of Fixed Term Lecturer in Physical Geography, in the College of Science, Department of Geography, reference AC00066. This post is fixed term until 30 April 2015.
The Geography Department is large and successful, with over 30 academic staff, and 400 undergraduate and postgraduate students.
