The University of Bristol School of Earth Sciences seeks an outstanding candidate for a permanent Lectureship appointment within the broad area of geophysics. Research areas include the use of physics to study any aspect of the interior, surface, or atmosphere of the Earth or other planetary bodies. We welcome applications with either a pure or applied focus.
The School of Earth Sciences is internationally leading in research, teaching, and impact (2nd in UK, top-15 internationally). The Geophysics group currently consists of 7 permanent academics, 1 technician, 15 postdocs/research fellows, and 20 PhD students. Research spans a wide range of geophysical topics including seismology, potential fields, remote sensing, earth observation, tectonics, mineral physics, geodynamics, atmospheric science, and planetary science.
The successful candidate will conduct world-class, innovative and agenda-setting research that complements and extends the research portfolio of the existing geophysics group and the broader School. A demonstrated track record of research excellence and ability to obtain external funding are essential.
The post holder will also be enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge with students and will have a strong commitment to classroom and fieldwork teaching. We offer undergraduate BSc and MSci degree programmes in Geophysics, Geology, Environmental Geoscience, and Palaeontology and Evolution (~80 students per year total).
