The Department of Geography at UCL invites applications for the position of Lecturer/ Associate Professor in Environment, Politics and Society. This is a new position which is being established as part of an expansion of research and teaching on the Anthropocene and Climate Change in the Department and across the Faculty of Social and Historical Sciences more broadly. The Department encourages applications from those trained in relevant fields including Human Geography, Social Anthropology, Science and Technology Studies, Sociology and Politics.
We welcome applicants with research interests in topics such as environmental and geopolitics, environmental policy and justice, climate change and energy, toxicity and hazards, and the relations between economy and environment, any of which will complement the work of our Environment, Politics and Society research group.
The post is being advertised in conjunction with an additional Lectureship/Associate Professorship in Physical Geography, and we particularly encourage applicants for this EPS position who have an interest in interdisciplinary collaboration with researchers in physical geography.
UCL Geography is strongly committed to the idea of Geography as a global discipline and welcomes applicants with research interests in the Global South.
We particularly welcome female applicants and those from an ethnic minority, as they are under-represented within UCL at this level.
