We currently have an open position for a PhD candidate within our new four-year research project, entitled ‘Negative Emissions and the Politics of a Projected Future’. This project critically investigates emerging discourses and practices on large-scale carbon dioxide removal/negative emissions, including but not limited to Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS). We are looking for excellent candidates that are keen to pursue a broadly-defined research interest in the politics of climate change mitigation and integrated assessment modelling from a political economy, political ecology and/or STS perspective.
The successful candidate will be situated at the Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies (LUCSUS) and be part of an international research team including Wim Carton, Andreas Malm and Emily Boyd in Lund; Holly Jean Buck at UCLA; and Silke Beck at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research. This is a fully-funded, 4-year position with the possibility of up to 20% teaching (compensated by extension of the contract for up to one year). The application deadline is 9 April.
