Lecturer/Assistant Professor in Hydrology
The University of Edinburgh
The School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh wishes to appoint a full-time Lecturer in Hydrology on an open-ended contract. We are seeking a committed and enthusiastic individual to join the teaching team for the BSc (Hons) Geography degree programmes and who has expertise in topics related to hydrological sciences. The appointee will contribute high quality teaching to the BSc (Hons) Geography degree programme and pursue excellent research in the School of GeoSciences. The role will involve course design, delivery, assessment and organisation, aswell as pastoral care, and supervision of undergraduate and graduate students. The appointee will also pursue excellent research, engage in knowledge exchange, and contribute to Institute and School citizenship and administration.
The appointee will be a member of the Global Change Research Institute in the School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh. The institute is home to around 100 academic and research staff and 130 postgraduate researchers whose overarching mission is to understand past, present and future changes in the Earth system, and to inform mitigation strategies for future change. We host longstanding programmes in understanding how the atmosphere, biosphere, cryosphere, land surface and oceans have interacted in the past, in monitoring their current behaviour, and in developing predictions of their future dynamics. Building on these scientific foundations, we further engage in interdisciplinary research focussed on mitigating the many challenges posed by the global climate emergency, environmental hazards, inequalities, conservation and sustainability. Our research extends throughout the world, over the seven continents, across all the oceans, from the poles to the equator, and from the deep Earth to the upper atmosphere. Our research programmes typically involve fieldwork, remote sensing, in situ monitoring, laboratory experimentation and analysis, theory, modelling and stakeholder engagement. We research and teach across all GeoSciences disciplines including ecology, environmental science, geography, geology, geophysics and meteorology.
The School of GeoSciences is actively trying to build a more diverse academic community. We strongly welcome applications from under-represented groups within the School, including candidates who are LGBTQ+, disabled and from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds.
