The main responsibilities of the role are to:
- Assist with the organisation and running of the Postgraduate Forum Midterm conference,

The role is a great opportunity to make contact with other geographers, network with research groups and help shape three conferences which are of great value to postgraduate geographers across the world.

Thank you for your interest, we look forward to receiving your application!
