Start Date: On or before 1 January 2018, or as soon as possible thereafter

The School of Earth and Environmental Sciences invites applications for a Lectureship-level appointment from individuals that utilise applied, field-based or theoretical approaches to address fundamental questions about the processes that control Earth’s surface environments. We particularly welcome applicants that would expand our core research and teaching strengths in geology, palaeoclimate, geochemistry and economic geology into a modern environmental context. This could be in fields including (but not limited to) hydrogeology, environmental remediation, environmental mineralogy, remote sensing, GIS and environmental systems (e.g. hydrological, atmosphere, ocean) modeling or global environmental change.

The successful candidate will complement our vibrant research groups in Global Change, Solid Earth & Planetary Science, Geobiology & Earth System Evolution, Economic Geology & Energy and Earth Surface Processes, and will be able to develop an externally funded, innovative and impactful research programme. The successful candidate will additionally be expected to contribute skills-transferable and research-led teaching to our degree programmes, including the BSc in Environmental Earth Science.

Our work is complemented by collaborations with researchers in the Schools of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics & Statistics, and Physics & Astronomy, and the Environmental Change research group in the School of Geography & Sustainable Development. We also engage with the Scottish Oceans Institute, the European Marine Biology Research Centre, the Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland, and the Centre for Advanced Materials.

More information about the School can be found at http://earthsci.st-andrews.ac.uk/ and informal enquiries should be directed to: Dr Tony Prave (ap13 [at] st-andrews [dot] ac [dot] uk).

Applications are particularly welcome from women who are under-represented in Science posts at the University.
