Apologies for cross posting
We invite applications for a*Lectureship in Geohazards* in the School of
Environmental Sciences within the Faculty of Science at UEA. A
*Lectureship in Georesources* will follow shortly.
The School is one of the largest and longest established academic
departments in Europe to focus on the study of the global environment,
ranking 1st for impact in the REF 2014, and holding a Silver Athena SWAN
*Lecturer in Geohazards*
Candidates will be able to demonstrate strong expertise in an area of
geohazards research and will be excited by the opportunity to develop
their research interests in the rich interdisciplinary environment the
The central focus of the post is in a field of geological hazards
research dedicated to the physical understanding of natural hazardous
phenomena and their impacts. We welcome applications from those with an
interest in a broad range of geohazards, to include those associated
with a rapidly changing environment such as coastal erosion and glacial
dynamics. We particularly welcome applications from those with
experience in the use of geophysical tools such as remote and near
field-sensing. Candidates should have a keen interest in deploying
their knowledge in an applied context or in reducing the societal
impacts associated with hazardous events.
The post holder should also have a keen interest in developing excellent
teaching and will contribute to the School’s BSc and MSc programmes in
geosciences, primarily advanced level teaching in one or more of the
following modules: Applied Geophysics, Geophysical Hazards, Global
Tectonics and Geomorphology.
Applicants must have a PhD in geohazards or a closely allied and
appropriate subject and fulfil all essential elements of the person
This post is available from 1 July 2020, on a full-time indefinite basis.
