The role

The School of Earth Sciences wishes to appoint a short-term Lecturer in Volcanology to assist in the delivery of its postgraduate and undergraduate taught programmes for 1 year.

What will you be doing?

You will work with the Volcanology MSc Programme Director and the Undergraduate Director of Education to assist in the delivery of MSc Volcanology and undergraduate Geology education. This will involve facilitating MSc student discussions of current topics in Volcanology and helping the students to develop critical thinking, communication and research skills through lectures, group discussions, and feedback on assessments. You will also propose and supervise or co-supervise MSc research projects. Additional teaching duties will depend on the needs of the School and your own skills, and they could include co-teaching geological field classes, supervising MSci projects, tutorials, developing digital teaching materials or lecturing on petrology.

You should apply if
  • You have a PhD in Earth Sciences or related relevant subject,
  • Research expertise in Volcanology,
  • Sufficient formal education or practical experience to be able to teach fundamental Geology skills (e.g. mapping or petrography),
  • You share our ambition for a diverse and equitable School.

Please provide a CV as well as a cover letter (no more than two pages) that describes a) your scientific experience and background; b) educational experience, vision and values; and c) how you could contribute to a collegiate community, including our commitment to EDI.

Deadline for applications: 18th June 2021. Interviews will be held around the 20/21st July 2021 (subject to confirmation). Appointment start date is anticipated to be the 1st September 2021.

We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.
