The Environment Department is currently engaged in a major expansion in human geography and environmental social science to complement our existing strengths in physical geography, environmental science, ecology and environmental economics. This new position will provide leadership in this field.
The Department has grown rapidly over the last decade and plans a further period of expansion through to 2020; human geography/environmental social science will be a focus for much of this growth. Your role will set the research agenda for human geography/environmental social science, shaping the research vision for the field and expanding the collaborative links we have with other Departments and Centres within York and promoting interdisciplinary research.
