Build your career with us as we invest in our growing geology programmes.

The roles

The School of Earth, Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences houses world-leading research, as well as large and successful PhD, masters and undergraduate programmes. Vigorous geology research addresses crustal fracture and fluid flow, basin analysis, deep Earth processes, geological disposal of nuclear waste and the extraction of petroleum resources.

As the first phase of major investment into growth in our geology programmes, we're making two appointments: one at professorial level and one at lecturer/senior lecturer/reader level. You will contribute to the School’s Earth Science teaching programmes, while pursuing your own area of specialist geological research.

The person

Both roles demand an outstanding research record and expertise in magmatic or metamorphic processes, tectonics or structural geology. You could be a geochemist or mineral scientist and your research may be experimentally, analytically, computationally or fieldwork focused.

For the professorial post you will need an outstanding record of world-class personal research, with experience of leading a wider research group. You will demonstrate the ambition and leadership skills to grow and extend our research and play a significant role in steering and managing geology teaching, as well as grow our staff and resources to deliver these activities.

For the lecturer/reader post you will have an outstanding research record; experience of field teaching would be an advantage. The level of your appointment will be commensurate with your track-record and future potential.

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Hugh Coe.
