Centre for Landscape and Climate Research: Lecturer in Geographical InformationScience/ Remote Sensing, Ref SEN00337

At Leicester we’re going places. Ranked in the top 20 universities in Britain our aim is to climb further. A commitment to high quality fused with an inclusive academic culture is our hallmark and led the Times Higher Education to describe us as “elite without being elitist”. As part of its ongoing development the Department of Geography, University of Leicester, is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in GIScience. The areas of research and teaching are open, but we seek to appoint a person whose interests either complement or supplement those of others in the GIScience and Remote Sensing Research Group and who will further enhance the high quality research and teaching work of the Department. You should have a relevant PhD, a strong publication record and evidence of research potential. You will be required to teach on both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and to supervise undergraduate, Masters and PhD students.

Members of the current GIScience and Remote Sensing group conduct research in the following areas:
- Spatial Literacy and Digital Geographies
- Applied Geocomputation
- Earth Observation

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Prof Pete Fisher on pff1@le.ac.uk or the Head of Department, Prof Susan Page on hodgeog@le.ac.uk
