The School of Geographical and Earth Sciences (GES) at the University of Glasgow, announces the opening of three academic positions (Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader; open-ended contracts) as part of a new cluster hire in Stressed Environments and Communities. The cluster will build upon the school's expertise that collectively examines how environments and communities become stressed and the geomorphic, ecological, human, and global consequences of this stress. The chosen candidates are expected to develop internationally visible and funded research programs. We are particularly interested in candidates who can bridge disciplines in the school and investigate processes between human and physical geography or ecology and environmental science. The candidates are expected to link their research to existing school strengths in Earth System Science and/or Critical Human Geography, as well as one or more University units such as the Centre for Sustainable Solutions, Centre for Data Science and AI, the Centre for the Isotope Sciences (SUERC), the Glasgow Computational Engineering Centre, Glasgow Refugee, Asylum and Migration NETwork (GRAMNET), and the Glasgow Center for International Development (GCID).

For position: Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader - Biogeomorphic Systems

To carry out research and scholarship in the area of Biogeomorphic Systems. Fields of research could include (but are not limited to) biogeomorphology, ecohydrology, rhizosphere processes, soil science, vegetation-atmosphere-hydrosphere interactions, or nutrient and element cycling. Techniques used can include: geomorphic, geochemical, molecular, physiological, geophysical, hydrologic, field, or analog/numerical modeling experiments. We are particularly interested in candidates who can bridge between disciplines within the school and investigate processes active on both human and geologic timescales. We seek individuals who can deliver an excellent student experience through teaching and assessment as well as contribute to school management and administration. Teaching contributions will be in the broad areas of an undergraduate course(s) in physical geography, geosciences, field trips, and in the candidate's area of research expertise at the post-graduate level. At Grades 8 or 9, demonstrated leadership, prior external funding, and contributions to academic and strategic management.
