*** 2 x CONTINUING/TENURED ACADEMIC JOBS IN PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY AT MONASH UNIVERSITY, MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA ***
The School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment at Monash University in Melbourne Australia, is seeking two forward thinking, dynamic, and innovative academics to take on the roles of Lecturer (Level B) or Senior Lecturer (Level C) in the area of Physical Geography. The field of Physical Geography represents a key research theme within the School, and there will be excellent scope for collaborations and building a world-class research program. Monash is Australia’s largest university, and as a member of the G08 is one of Australia’s leading research universities.
The successful appointees will be expected to make significant contributions to the research and teaching program of the School of Earth Atmosphere and Environment, building on and extending our existing strengths in Climate Research, Coastal Science, Cryospheric Science, Environmental Geochemistry, GIS and Remote Sensing, Hydrogeology, and Soil Science. Our school also includes outstanding groups in geology and atmospheric sciences, and our new colleagues will work in a broad and collegiate environment spanning the Earth Sciences.
We are searching widely for the best people in physical geography, and will adjust our teaching programme to suit the particular skills and interests of the successful candidates.
Here are some subject areas where I think we could do with additional expertise - but this list is by no means exhaustive and it contains my own biases.
- Earth Surface Processes
- Geomorphology, particularly quantitative elements (e.g. numerical modelling combined with empirical constraints).
- Earth Observation (satellite, drone, etc) especially if coupled with one of these other subjects.
- Quaternary landscape, sea level, vegetation and climate change.
- The history, land use, and timescale of Australian Indigenous peoples.
Monash University strongly advocates diversity, equality, fairness and openness. We fully support the gender equity principles of the Athena SWAN Charter and invite you to join us in celebrating women in STEMMand specifically women in Science and the School of Earth Atmosphere and Environment’s commitment to Equity Diversity and Inclusion. Applicants from underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
Monash and the University of Melbourne are currently developing a joint field station at spectacular Point Nepean, one hour drive from the Monash Clayton Campus, and this will provide first-class opportunities for collaboration.
The positions close on Sunday 19th September. There is more information and you can apply here.
This is a rare opportunity to join our team. I am very happy to answer questions about the positions or to connect you to other staff in our school.
Kind regards, Andrew
We are also currently seeking two post docs, one in ice sheet modelling and the other in climate modelling & sea ice as part of the newly funded SECURING ANTARCTICAS ENVIRONMENTAL FUTURE programme.
These positions close on 9th September.
