Fulltime, Permanent Position: Climate Change/Climate Modelling

Lecturer Above/Below the Bar, Geography (Climate Change/Climate Modelling)

Crucial to the support of the University’s Research and Innovation strategy is the attraction and retention of emerging leaders in research across the University’s key research themes, building on significant international successes to date. In a new departure
the University will partner with Galway University Foundation to fund and support the Foundation Research Leadership Programme. Through this programme the University will support the development of future research leaders, from career foundation through to
research pioneers.

The challenge now is to attract and retain high-calibre emerging researchers in the University’s priority research areas.

The Foundation Research Leadership Programme has a mix of targeted (thematic) and non-targeted (non-thematic) calls:

• The University intends to support circa 15 Lectureship posts over a three-year period. 

• Recruitment to the Lectureships will focus particularly on the research output and potential of applicants, with candidates being required to have internationally recognised measurable research output and impact in their careers to date and to be able to
demonstrate convincingly their future research plans and strategy .

Under this programme applications are now invited for an appointment as Lecturer in Geography in the College of Arts, Social Sciences and Celtic Studies at NUI Galway, meeting the required eligibility requirements in the broad field of Geography, and expertise
in one or more specialist topics of Climate Change / Climate Modelling.

.Candidates are invited who have a demonstrated publication record in their research field, and who maintain an active research profile. The successful candidate will exhibit successful acquisition of research funding from national and/or international sources,
with established collaborative networks in the field. The successful applicant will have experience in postgraduate supervision and maintaining a sustainable postgraduate research programme. Appropriate teaching experience at the undergraduate and postgraduate
levels is required. Administrative experience connected with teaching and research in Geography at third-level is desirable. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the Environmental Change research cluster in the School of Geography and
Archaeology, and actively contribute to the Ryan Institute at NUI Galway.

Hosting in excess of 800 students, the School is one of the largest academic units in the university. In addition to our BA programme, we have four taught Masters programmes and research PhD students. All members of staff in the School are involved in diverse
research activities, many of which are supported by a wide range of funding agencies, ranging from the EU, national, regional and local bodies.
