The School of Geographical Sciences is looking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed person to a Lectureship in Quantitative Geography. You will deliver teaching in quantitative methods at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as other substantive areas of human geography. You will be able to teach regression methods, ideally through the medium of R. The post is advertised at three years in the first instance, and you will need to develop your own research agenda, contribute to initiatives within the Spatial Modelling research group, and participate in the range of activities in the School as well as building strong research links more broadly.
You will become a member of the Spatial Modelling Research Group (www.bris.ac.uk/geography/research/spatial-modelling/) which has an international reputation as a leading centre for spatial analysis. It focuses on innovative methodologies and techniques for the analysis of spatial data and their application to social, political and economic research problems. In addition the Group has a strong interest in the development of innovative social science software.
This Lectureship offers an exciting opportunity to join this innovative research group and to contribute to future developments in the School of Geographical Sciences. Applications are welcomed from both human geographers and social scientists in cognate disciplines who have research interests in quantitative analysis in the social sciences using geographical data. You will have an emerging international reputation for research (or will be able to demonstrate a capacity to build such a reputation) and an excellent record of publication for your career stage.
