Apologies for cross-listing

Two Posts in Human Geography at University of Edinburgh
We are currently advertising for two posts in Human Geography. One of  
these may be at the Lecturer level; the other will be Senior Lecturer  
or Reader level.
Details and links to further particulars are below.

GeoSciences: Senior Lecturer/Reader and Lecturer in Human Geography
We seek two outstanding researchers to contribute to the Human  
Geography Research Group and the School of GeoSciences.

Position 1 requires a Human Geographer specialising in policy  
relevant research related to one of our core themes: Relations and  
Identities; Knowledges, Practices, and Policies; Development and  
Power. The specific policy area is open, but we especially welcome  
applicants with a focus on health, education, housing, social  
welfare, science or the environment.

Position 2 is for an Economic Geographer who would strengthen  
research in the Development and Power theme within HGRG and build  
linkages within the School of Geosciences and/or with the College of  
Humanities and Social Sciences. While all specialisations within  
Economic Geography will be considered, we have a preference for  
research foci on the inter-relationships between informal and formal  
economies (including regulation, labour practices, or social  
reproduction), the cultural economy, or development.

The selection committee has the capacity to appoint one position at  
the rank of either Senior Lecturer or Reader (salary grade 9) to a  
suitably-qualified candidate. The other position will be appointed as  
a Lecturer (salary grade 8). Our preference is for appointment to  
commence in August, 2008.
