The School of Geography and the Environment is seeking to appoint a Departmental Lecturer and MSc Course Director. The successful candidate will manage and deliver the MSc in Environmental Change and Management (ECM) in conjunction with the programme’s Academic Director and the Director of Graduate Studies.
The MSc/MPhil in Environmental Change and Management aims to produce students with a broad appreciation of all aspects of the management of people and institutions in relation to environmental change. The course emphasises cross cutting, interdisciplinary approaches to the critical environmental problems of our time, especially climate change and adaptation, energy and lower carbon futures, and ecosystem conservation and management.
You will lead in the coordination, teaching, marking and supervision for the ECM course, contribute to the academic administration of the department and maintain an active research and publication profile.
To undertake this role, you will need a doctorate (or have recently submitted) in a field related to the ECM Masters programme and have a track record of post-doctoral research and high quality academic publication in an appropriate field. You will also need to demonstrate an awareness of pedagogic methods and the ability to be an effective teacher of graduate students of high ability by lecturing at an appropriate level in an interesting and engaging manner; supervising MSc dissertations; and undertaking student assessments and examinations.
This post, which will be based at the School of Geography and the Environment (SoGE), University of Oxford, is a full-time, 5 year departmental appointment with no formal college association, though informal relationships may be established on an individual basis.
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 18 January 2019.
