Lectureships at Newcastle University

There are currently two lectureships (equivalent to Assistant Professor) advertised in Physical Geography in the School of Geography, Politics & Sociology, Newcastle University. Successful applicants will undertake research and teaching that complements and extends existing strengths in Physical Geography. The School's research focuses on understanding the processes and mechanisms that shape the Earth and how its physical environment supports, and is impacted by, human activities. Applicants will develop and undertake internationally recognised research within their field and are expected to make a full contribution to both field- and practical-based undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. Field, earth observation, GIS and laboratory approaches, which shape the research-led undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programs are encouraged and supported.


Applicants must have a good first degree and a PhD (or near completion) in Physical Geography or a related field, with postdoctoral experience an advantage. Research areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • water science,

  • past environments,

  • glaciology,

  • ecosystems,

  • geomorphology, and

  • geohazards.
