The Department of Geography at the University of Sheffield is one of the top 25 worldwide (QS World University Rankings 2014) with research and teaching at the cutting edge of contemporary geography. As one of the largest geography departments in the UK, we have a vibrant community of undergraduates, postgraduates and post-doctoral researchers.
We seek to appoint two Research Associates who will develop their research by collaborating with members of the Ice and Climate Research at Sheffield (ICERS) group and begin a new research agenda. You will work with ICERS colleagues to develop at least one proposal to gain further support for a research project.
Candidates will have recently finished or be finishing a PhD or postdoctoral research position in a relevant discipline and have a desire to work amongst the ICERS group. The ability to think creatively, generate own ideas and guide and motivate own research is essential.
