Job description

We welcome applications for a one-year lectureship in Cultural and Historical Geography to join our collegial team. The role is to provide teaching cover for Professor Carl Griffin who has been awarded funding from the Leverhulme Trust. As such, the primary focus is on teaching, but the successful candidate will be appointed to a teaching and research post and given time and support to develop their research.

Under the direction of the Head of Department, the successful candidate will contribute to teaching at undergraduate and graduate level, including convening and teaching the second year undergraduate Cultural and Historical Geographies, delivering local non-residential field teaching, running small-group tutorials, undertaking supervisions, marking and associated administrative tasks.

You will hold, or be close to completing, a PhD in Cultural and Historical Geography (or cognate field) and have a publication record commensurate with your career stage. You will be expected to demonstrate familiarity with the existing literature and debates in cultural and history geography and have the ability (or potential) to be an effective and engaging teacher.

As a department we are committed to decolonizing our curriculum and our practices, and we particularly welcome and encourage applications from black and minority ethnic candidates who are under-represented in academic posts at Sussex.
