Lancaster University is seeking exceptional people to help set up and develop a major new Institute for Social Futures, co-directed by Professors John Urry and Linda Woodhead. This interdisciplinary Institute is concerned with examining the nature of multiple, complex and interdependent social futures.
In the first 2 years you will concentrate upon research while in subsequent years you will develop UG and PG teaching and administration in a relevant Lancaster University department(s). A strong interest in social futures is expected, as well as a PhD and excellent research outputs and grant promise. Grounding in social science is expected, but we are mainly looking for innovative researchers working across disciplines, and with interests in interdisciplinary research.
Appointments will normally be made with starting salaries in the range £33,242 – £39,685 but appointments may be made at a more senior level including Senior Lecturer/Reader
