About the role
The School of Geography, Geology & the Environment is seeking to make an academic appointment at Lecturer (Grade 8) level with a focus on Human Geography. As a Lecturer on a teaching and research contract, you will become a leading member of the Critical and Creative Geographies (Human Geography) research group within the School, helping to develop our Geographies of Living with Change, Loss and Dying in an Uneven World research theme. We are looking to appoint a human geographer who employs digital methods within their research and can strengthen understandings of how digital approaches interplay with emotional, affective and creative everyday geographies.
 
The Critical and Creative Geographies group conducts research that recognises, examines, and influences diversity, solidarities, exclusions, inequities, harms and loss across a diverse range of urban, rural and other spaces. Within the Geographies of Living and Dying in an Uneven World theme, research investigates the practices, experiences and challenges of everyday living in diverse and changing contexts, highlighting their connections to prejudice, injustice, inequalities, ill-health, displacement and loss, as well as the creative dimensions of people's affective engagements with everyday spaces and places and the possibilities for more equitable and meaningful lifeworlds. Research in this theme includes studies of rural gentrification, housing inequalities, migration, creative geohumanities, emotional geographies, multiculturalism and solidarity in diversity, and the use of digital methods in the study of everday living, as well as disciplinary leadership through the Royal Geographical Society’s Race, Culture and Equality Working Group. 
 
Our Undergraduate BA Geography programmes emphasise critical thinking and the development of a suite of quantitative and qualitative research skills. Through the use of innovative teaching and assessment methods, we encourage our students to be both critical and creative and to reflect upon the role Human Geographers play in the modern world. At the postgraduate level we provide Masters level training modules in critical and creative geographies as part of the ESRC Midlands Graduate School and also run a highly successful Masters in Geographical Information Science.
About you
The successful candidate will have produced innovative scholarly output, and be able to demonstrate leadership potential through a clear research vision.  The research of the successful candidate should complement and create synergies to the activities of the Critical and Creative Geographies group.  whilst also having the potential to create interdisciplinary links across the School and University.
