The University of Lincoln has recently established a new School of Geography within the College of Science, with its first cohort of undergraduate students enrolled in September 2017. The School is developing interdisciplinary programmes in Human and Physical Geography, complementary to, and extending the University’s existing research portfolio that has distinctive “local to global” agenda.
Turbulent political times in the UK and globally make this an exciting opportunity to shape the way that we teach Social and Political Geography and to help direct the School of Geography’s research in this field. The successful candidate will be expected to deliver a new 2nd year module and to contribute to the development of 3rd year and masters teaching as the school develops.
The teaching and research focus for the School of Geography is the safety and health of the inhabited Earth. With the world’s population divided between urban centres and rural populations, we also include social issues that affect both, such as crime and deprivation, as well as disease, pollution and natural hazards notably floods and droughts.
The foundational Head of School is Professor Mark Macklin who is a multi-award winning geographer and a world authority in river systems and global environmental change, including flooding and pollution issues. He is also the foundational Director of the Lincoln Centre for Water and Planetary Health.
