Growth of the School of Geography at Melbourne
The School of Geography at the University of Melbourne is embarking on an exciting period of growth. This follows its move into the Science Faculty at the start of 2015, and the recognition there of the importance of Geography’s capacity to produce research and teach in both social and natural science and in the ways in which these two areas intersect.
Not only will our areas of current research and teaching strength (in international development, urbanisation, biogeography and earth systems, with an overarching interest in environment) be bolstered by this new growth in our academic staff, but we will also embark on a new specialisation in health geography.
So, the School is currently advertising four teaching and research positions to begin this period of growth over the next decade. Applications for these positions are due on September 20, 2015, and successful applicants will be expected to take up the roles in the first half of 2016.
The positions are:
- Lecturer in Environmental Change
- Lecturer in Geography
- Lecturer in Health Geography
- Lecturer in Urban Geography
