The Department of Geography and Sustainable Development at St Andrews invites applications for three posts in Human Geography (from Lecturer to Professor). Exceptional candidates will be considered for Reader or Professorial positions. We welcome applications from candidates at all career stages who are, or have the potential to be, world leading in their particular specialism.

The successful candidates may have expertise in any area of human geography. Our desire is to appoint individuals with outstanding research capacity whatever their specialism, although expertise in population/health or cities/neighbourhoods may be an advantage. Experience of advanced quantitative methods is desired for at least one of the posts.  You will have the opportunity to engage with staff working on large, externally-funded initiatives – the Centre for Population Change (http://www.cpc.ac.uk/) and the Census and Administrative Data Longitudinal Studies hub (http://calls.ac.uk/), whilst those with interests in cities and neighbourhoods will be encouraged to develop links with the Centre for Housing Research (http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/chr) within the Department. You will also contribute to the Geography teaching programme as appropriate.

You will have a PhD in Geography or a cognate social science discipline and have the ability to deliver high-quality research and teaching. Applicants for promoted posts will have a proven track record in research leadership and winning external funding from the ESRC or equivalent sources.

Informal enquiries are very welcome, and may be made to: Prof Allan Findlay (Allan.M.Findlay@st-andrews.ac.uk; tel +44 (0)1334 464011), Prof Elspeth Graham (efg@st-andrews.ac.uk; tel +44 (0)1334 463908), or Prof Colin Hunter (Head of Department/co-Head of School; ch69@st-andrews.ac.uk; tel +44 (0)1334 464017).
