There is a faculty (i.e. open ended academic) position at Loughborough going. Loughborough is consistently in the 10 best university in the UK by recent rankings, often up to 5th, and we think it’s a friendly and academically exciting place that produces world-leading environmental science.
The job advert for a ‘Lecturer’ – translation from UK terminology – this would be called (entry-level) ‘Professor’ in many other countries. The lectureship is in Geography and our head of department has stressed to us that this can be in either human or physical geography: a couple of quotes below (bold is my addition).
“The position is broad”
“We would especially welcome interest in the climate-energy-development nexus, which might bridge physical and human geography through wider considerations of sustainability and resilience.”
My personal belief is that the broad scope of interest is genuine, and that early career scientists in the DAMOCLES network could be of interest e.g. with impact-centric compound methods spanning from physical science to human considerations, and with a potential focus on resilience.
