Earth Sciences at Durham University is a UK top 5 and global top 30 department, with 35 academic staff, 30 research staff, 90 PhD students and 300 undergraduate students. We wish to appoint two collaborative, intellectually curious and inclusive colleagues as Assistant Professors, with research and teaching interests in any area of Earth Science that complement the department’s existing expertise. You will make a key contribution to the Department’s future success by providing the highest quality education to both undergraduate and postgraduate students, and by conducting research that is recognized internationally for its originality, significance, and rigour. You will be encouraged and helped to build your own research group, to collaborate widely, and to realize the full potential of both the discipline-specific and broader multidisciplinary impact of your research. Your research may innovate new research themes or contribute to existing themes in the Department and across the University.
We will help you to reach your full potential in both education and research. Start-up packages can be negotiated and we welcome applications from those who wish or need to adopt flexible working practices.
The Department strives for a collegial and collaborative working environment and is a member of the Athena SWAN Charter, currently holding a departmental Bronze Athena SWAN award.
Interviews are anticipated to take place in early 2019 and successful applicants will, ideally, be in post by 1 June 2019.
