We are delighted to announce that the position of Associate Professor in Geography with Tutorial Fellowship in Geography at St Anne’s College has been offered to Dr Jennie Middleton.

Dr Middleton holds a BA (Hons) in Geography (University of Wales) and an MSc in Human Geography Research (London School of Economics).

Dr Middleton’s research pertains to three overlapping themes: geographies of mobilities; care in the city; and innovative methodologies for urban research. All three themes are underpinned by concerns with the relationships between theory, policy and practice.
