I’m very excited to announce that in January 2015 I will be taking up a position as Professeur ordinaire at the Université de Lausanne, or “Unil”, on the shores of Lake Geneva, in Switzerland. I will be joining a vibrant group of scholars in the Institute of Geography and Sustainability, which is part of the ten-year old Faculty of Geosciences and the Environment. I will be teaching into the undergraduate geography and environmental sciences program, and into the postgraduate development studies program (part of the masters in geography). And I will be maintaining my research interests, and look forward to collaborating with new colleagues at Unil while maintaining collaborations at Monash and elsewhere. This is a wonderful opportunity for both personal and professional reasons, and I look forward to it!
By the way, the Swiss government has some attractive PhD scholarships and Post-doc funding for international candidates. And watch this blog, as I will soon be advertising for two PhD Assistantships funded by the University of Lausanne. I will ‘say goodbye’ to Monash in a later blog entry.
