Environmental Dynamics

The Department invites applications from well-qualified candidates whose research interests correspond to areas of expertise focused around the following research groupings: Environmental Dynamics Group: research interests: understanding environmental variability throughout the quaternary and the effects of future climatic change; regions especially sensitive to environmental change (tropical, cold and wildfire-prone); interactions between climate change, human disturbance and catastrophic events. Glaciology Group: research interests: glaciology and the cryosphere, specialising in understanding the processes that regulate glacier dynamics, calving, flow instabilities and surging, and fast glacier flow. Global Environmental Modelling and Earth Observation Group (GEMEO): research interests: using satellite and airborne remote sensing data, surface observational data, land-surface models and ecosystem models to understand the response of the biosphere to variations in climate. Migration, Boundaries, and Identities Group: research interests: the social and political construction of place, nationalism and nationhood; relationships between international migration, globalisation and the conceptualisation of place; geographies of exclusion, particularly as these relate to issues of race, gender and childhood.
