St Catherine's College, Oxford


The College proposes to appoint a six-hour Stipendiary Lecturer in Physical Geography from October 1998, for three years in the first instance, renewable for a further two years. The Lecturer will be required to teach (in tutorials and classes) six hours a week on average in the eight weeks of each full term. In addition, he or she will be expected to play a full role in the running of Honour Schools involving Physical Geography, including participating in the admissions process, setting and marking College examinations, and the pastoral care of undergraduates.

The Lecturer will be expected to teach across a broad range of topics for the First and Second Public Examinations in the degree courses at Oxford involving Physical Geography (including biogeography, climatology, human impacts on the environment) and geographical techniques (statistics, remote sensing, and general IT skills). He or she will also be expected to run revision classes in the core subjects, and to do such special paper teaching as falls within his or her research areas. A teaching room is usually available. The Lecturer will be a member of the Senior Common Room and will receive five meals a week, free of charge, during term time. The stipend for 1998-99 will be £7,596 (under review), and will be pensionable.

Applications should be addressed to the Senior Tutor, St Catherine's College, Oxford, OX1 3UJ, and should include a curriculum vitae, an indication of areas of teaching expertise, and the names of two referees. Applicants should ask their referees to write directly to the Senior Tutor. Applications and references must arrive by Friday, 19 June. Shortlisted candidates are likely to be interviewed during the week beginning 6 July 1998.

The College is an equal opportunities employer.
