Suitable candidates will have a good first degree and a higher degree in Agriculture, Biology, Soil Science or a related area. A key element of this role is the delivery of high quality teaching and the postholder will be required to lead and contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate modules within the soils area. Candidates should also have a strong interest in soil science, including specialist areas that could be developed into a successful research programme. We would welcome applicants with experience in areas of soil chemistry or the mangment and auditing of soil carbon.
