University of Birmingham (UK)
Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Quaternary Geology
This post is in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (GEES) and is associated with the Geosystems research group. The Geosystems group covers a wide range of activity concerned with the dynamic behaviour of our planet and its complex history, and hence is multidisciplinary, just as Quaternary science. Current Quaternary research at Birmingham includes internationally leading work in speleothem science, modelling of Holocene environments, and multiproxy studies of lacustrine systems. We are looking for an individual who will enhance our existing strong research profile by developing their area of expertise as well as investing effort in collaborations with colleagues in the School and elsewhere in the University. Evidence of a strong track record in publishing work of the highest academic quality and impact, and (for a senior appointment) obtaining external research funding is important. The appointee will also be involved in delivery and management of teaching including both field teaching of the Earth Sciences, and Quaternary science and related subjects. In this respect, we aim to attract an inspiring teacher, able to communicate with researchers, undergraduates, and the general public.
Closing date: 15th May 2012 Informal enquiries to Ian Fairchild
