We are living through unprecedented change on Earth; scientific understanding of geological hazards, sustainability, infrastructure, climate change, energy and natural resources is increasingly important to society. Durham University wishes to appoint three outstanding, collaborative and broad-thinking colleagues as Assistant Professors, with research and teaching interests in either of the general areas of Geophysics or Environmental Geoscience. This includes but is not limited to subject areas such as Climate and Environmental Change; Earth Observation; Subsurface Investigation, Exploration or Remediation; Geohazards; Biogeoscience; and Digital Environment.
You will have the opportunity to 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 at a high international level. You will be encouraged and helped to build your own research group, to collaborate widely and to explore the full potential of the impact of your research. Your research may innovate new research themes or contribute to existing themes in the Department and across the University, including cross-disciplinary and collaborative vehicles such as the Durham Energy Institute and the Institute for Hazard, Risk and Resilience.
