Dear fellow IAG members, we have a job for a lecturer at Griffith University currently being advertised.

This job may interest planners and geographers. You may have heard that we have been through some recent restructuring. The good news is that it has resulted in a renewed commitment to urban and environmental planning at Griffith. We are among the nation's leaders in teaching (with outstanding outcomes in QILT and the Good Universities Guide), and our research performance is strengthening as we refresh our research capacity.

Sincerely - Jason
