OPEN-RANK (I.A. TT ASSISTANT, ASSOCIATE OR FULL) PROFESSOR OF GEOGRAPHY & TOURISM: FLOWS OF PEOPLE AND MONEY
KU Leuven, the University of Leuven, Belgium
In the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Research unit Geography and Tourism, there is a full-time academic vacancy in the area of “Flows of People and Money”. We are looking for internationally oriented candidates with an excellent research record and with educational competence within this field.
The research unit is strong in both tourism studies and socio-economic geography, but aims to expand its expertise on the important issue of mobility of people. How socio-economic geography is changing due to the mobility of people and their associated flows of money, and how does this impact on places at different scales? To answer this question, we need a geographer focusing on the intersection of economic and financial geography on the one hand, and migration and tourism studies on the other. A geographer studying the entangled flows of people and money will strengthen the Division of Geography & Tourism by focusing on the intersection of migration, tourism and socio-economic geography. Depending on the candidate, they may also strengthen existing research expertise in development, heritage, climate change, financial geography or sustainability.
