The Department of Earth Sciences at Durham University is seeking talented and ambitious academics to fill two Lectureship vacancies. The Department has broad interests across the range of geosciences (see web link below). We encourage applications from candidates working in any areas of geoscience research, although applicants with expertise in reflection seismology and/or marine sedimentology are particularly encouraged.
Successful applicants will be employed by the Department to conduct research and teaching of the highest, international quality. Academics are expected to raise funding to undertake research and to recruit and supervise postgraduate students and postdoctoral research staff. The Department will support new academic staff as much as possible to achieve this. All academic staff are encouraged to develop their own research groups and are also expected to contribute to existing Department research themes and collaborate across the University as appropriate.
The new lecturers will be expected to contribute to delivery of the Department’s research-led, undergraduate teaching in the classroom and the field. This will include teaching large groups, small (tutorial) groups, supervising dissertation/research projects and acting as an advisor for undergraduates. Staff may be asked to teach outside their expertise at an elementary level.
