As one of the oldest and largest Geography departments in the UK, the Department of Geography at the University of Sheffield has a vibrant community of staff, undergraduates, postgraduates and postdoctoral researchers. The Department enjoys a long-standing international reputation for excellence in research and teaching. The proportion of research outputs rated as world leading or internationally excellent in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework increased to 74% and all research-related impact was rated in these two highest categories. The dynamic academic environment is developed through six research clusters, including the Geographies of the Global South cluster.

The Geography department at The University of Sheffield seeks candidates who are able to demonstrate an excellent research trajectory in Human Geography and International Development, complementing and enhancing the interests of the Department. We welcome applications from candidates with expertise in teaching international development and the geographies of the global South; who have concrete experience of building strong partnerships, relationships and networks with colleagues in the global South required to develop world leading research programmes; and who can enhance our research performance within the Department and through collaboration with our interdisciplinary research centres. The successful candidate will hold a PhD in Geography or a related discipline (or equivalent experience).
