In a period of dynamic development, UOW is seeking to recruit an Associate Professor/Professor of Human Geography (Sustainable Communities) to build on and further enhance AUSCCER’s outstanding international reputation for dynamic and collaborative geographical research, and to steer new flagship degree development within the Department of Geography and Sustainable Communities, as it grows to become a full School in Jan 2016.
