Chair & 2 lectureships in Geography at Univ of Sheffield, UK
As part of our post-ref strategy, we intend to appoint a Chair and 2 lectureships in human geography to expand our existing strengths and/or bring us new areas of expertise in research and teaching. Our research in human geography is currently organised around the following clusters: socio-spatial analysis (policy, polics, geodemographics, GIS, economic geographies); international development; social and cultural geography; and society and environment. We welcome applications from all suitable candidates who complement and extend these interests or who bring us new areas of strength. Areas we might potentially strengthen include economic geography, spatial or comparative policy analysis, geodemographics, GIS, political economy, political geography/geopolitics, environmental change or international development but, above all, we are looking for dynamic, outstanding candidates with 4 * research and evidence of a commitment to grant capture. Applicants should also be able to demonstrate research and professional leadership. All candidates should have experience of teaching and be able to contribute to Undergraduate and Masters teaching and of supervising students and departmental administration.
If appointed, you will make substantial contributions to the department, its research and its teaching programmes. You will have considerable experience in Human Geography, or an allied discipline, an excellent record of gaining research funding and be willing to make a substantial contribution to leadership within the department and the university. The post is available from 1 January 2014 and further details are available at jobs.ac.uk and at the University of Sheffield website.
