Human Geography Lectureships

The School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol seeks
outstanding candidates for a number of lectureships in Human Geography.
Candidates will be expected to have demonstrated outstanding research
potential in an area within human geography. We seek applicants whose
research further broadens and expands upon the strengths of our existing
research groups in Geographies of Political Economy, Historical-Cultural
Geographies, and Spatial modelling. Candidates from all areas of human
geography are encouraged to apply. The School is interested to build its
capacity in spatial modelling, critical political economy, gender and
material embodiment, political ecology and nature-culture relations,
resource geographies, geographies of urbanism and technology, geopolitics
and violence, race, religion and social movements, and geographies of the
global South, but applicants from all areas will be considered. We are also
keen to recruit candidates who will enhance the School’s research
contribution to the recently established Cabot Institute which brings
together world-class expertise from Science, Engineering and Social
Sciences to develop multidisciplinary research programmes in environmental
risk and uncertainty.

This appointment builds on the international success of the School. We are
the only Geography department in the country to come in the top category
across every RAE that has been undertaken since 1986. Human geography
research at Bristol builds upon our long standing reputation for
theoretical and methodological innovation, moving into new areas such as
geographies of knowledge and political economic geographies; and providing
evidence for important policy impacts in finance, elections and health.
Physical geography research focuses on Earth system science, developing new
environmental data, producing novel numerical models used in academic and
applied contexts, and deploying expertise in evaluating models using
large-scale datasets.
