You should share our passion for high quality research-led teaching and be able to contribute to a range of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching of geosciences for a sustainable future. You will also supervise MSc and PhD thesis students.

An interest in emerging and developing countries would also be desirable.

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. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and women candidates as BAME and women are currently under-represented within the School.
