The University of Bristol School of Geographical Sciences invites applications for a Lectureship from scholars who will deepen and strengthen our research capacities in Hydrology. The post will augment and extend our international research profile and excellence in the broad area of catchment hydrology, hydrological change, modelling of hydrologic processes, hydroinformatics and hydrological data science.

The School of Geographical Sciences is one of the major international centres for integrated research and teaching in environmental sciences, environmental-social processes and human social sciences. It has played a major role in some of the most important geographical developments over the past few decades and is the only UK geography department to be top rated in every UK Research Excellence Framework.

We are looking for a candidate to join a vibrant community of hydrology researchers within the School of Geographical Sciences and the School of Civil Engineering. The Hydrology Group focuses on a range of water-driven problems in a variety of environments globally and engages in interdisciplinary research across the University of Bristol and internationally, and is ranked 9th in the world, 3rd in Europe and 1st in the UK for its water resources research. The successful candidate will complement existing hydrology research in Bristol and demonstrate strong potential for collaboration within the group.

We are a wide-ranging and collegial School, and we pride ourselves on fostering intellectual curiosity in a collaborative and supportive environment. Applicants from all backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply; the School is committed to providing an inclusive and equitable working environment.

Deadline for applications: Sunday 23rd June 2019, intended date for interviews: Monday 8th July 2019.  Please include a CV and a two-page cover letter that briefly covers your research vision, educational vision, and a diversity statement that addresses how you can contribute to a culture of inclusion and equity.
