Vacancy Reference: 139212

Salary: Grade 7/8/9, £39,347 - £44,263 / £48,350 - £56,021 /£57,696 - £64,914 per annum.

This post is fulltime and offered on an open-ended basis.

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 – Ecosystem-Geosphere Modelling

To conduct research and scholarship in the numerical modeling of vegetation dynamics and/or evolutionary processes in response to environmental change across different timescales.

The preferred candidate will conduct research on regional to global scale numerical modeling of bio-geosphere change as related to one or more of the following fields: dynamic vegetation modeling, evolutionary change and adaptation, evolutionary optimality approaches, or global biogeochemical cycles.

We are particularly interested in candidates who can bridge between disciplines within the school and investigate processes active on both human and geologic timescales. The position builds upon existing geosystem modeling and high-performance computing facilities within the school. 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 biogeography, physical geography, or environmental geoscience, field trips and a postgraduate course in their expertise (e.g., ecosystem modeling, quantitative biogeography, biodiversity, global change biology). At Grade (8/9), demonstrated leadership, external funding, and contributions to academic and strategic management.
