The University of East Anglia is seeking applicants for two positions 
that will be suitable for geophysicists.

*Lecturer in Physics*

In 2017 the Science Faculty will launch a Physics degree with a range of 
subjects that will make the course unique in the region and in the UK. 
The combination of strengths in chemical, environmental and 
computational physics at UEA will introduce a multidisciplinary modern 
degree that will meet the needs of graduates in today’s society.

This is an exciting time to be joining UEA in this new faculty 
appointment. While initially focussed on assisting with the development 
of the new course, the successful candidate will aspire to develop an 
independent research group. Current research interests in physics across 
the Faculty range from theoretical physics to environmental physics, 
including geophysics, meteorology and oceanography, alongside ultrafast 
spectroscopy, optics and computational physics. Candidates from any of 
these areas or others are invited to apply. Candidates should have a PhD 
(or equivalent qualification) in Physics or other relevant discipline, 
evidence of successful research activity in the field of Physics, an 
active interest and potential to grow and attain a senior position, and 
will be able to meet all the essential criteria set out in the Person 
Specification.

The post is available on a full time, indefinite basis from 1 July 2016.

Closing date: 12.00 noon on Friday 18 March 2016 (GMT).

*Lecturer in Natural Hazards*

The University of East Anglia will soon invite applications for a 
Lectureship in Natural Hazards in the School of Environmental 
Sciences.Candidates will have developed strong expertise in a field of 
geophysical hazards research and will feel excited by the opportunity to 
develop their research interests in the rich interdisciplinary 
environment the School offers. They are expected to develop an 
innovative and internationally recognised research programme, making an 
important contribution to the physical understanding of natural hazards. 
They will also have a keen interest in deploying this knowledge in an 
applied context and the societal impacts associated with hazardous 
events.The further particulars outline areas of research focus 
particularly attractive to the School.

In addition, skills in mathematical modelling and/or spatial information 
systems and the analysis of spatial data are desirable.With a keen 
interest in developing excellent teaching the post holder will 
contribute to advanced level teaching in geophysics. This will include 
field teaching and support the School’s BSc programmes in Environmental 
Geophysics, Environmental Earth Sciences, Geography, Environmental 
Sciences, and Meteorology and Oceanography.

You must have a PhD in Geophysics, Earth Sciences or a closely allied 
and appropriate subject and fulfil all essential elements of the person 
specification.

This posistion will be posted soon and is available from 1 August 2016, 
on a full-time indefinite basis.

Closing date: 12 noon on Friday 8th April 2016 (GMT).
