Closing Date: 8 October 2020 at midnight
The post is for a fixed term until 31 August 2021, and it is not anticipated that the post will be extended beyond this fixed term.
Durham Geography is a vibrant community of over 60 academic staff (approximately equally divided between physical and human geography), a graduate school of around 100 research and 40 taught postgraduate students and more than 750 undergraduates.
It has ranked as one of the top ten in the world for 7 consecutive years according to the QS rankings and is recurrently ranked in the top handful of programmes in the UK by various league tables (currently 1st in the Times Good University Guide 2nd in the Guardian University Guide and 3rd in the Complete University Guide).
Applications are invited for a Teaching Fellow in Human Geography. This can be in the context of a range of areas, including one or more of: feminist theory; queer theory; Marxist theory; political ecology; geographies of life and life processes. The expertise to teach research methods in human geography would also be an advantage.
Teaching Fellowships offer the opportunity of valuable experience to those early in their academic careers and the University is keen to maximise the benefit to as many people as possible. The post of Teaching Fellow will involve a significant teaching load, which may extend into the summer period, and there may be related scholarship and the opportunity for administrative duties which relate to education and pedagogy.
