Are you an interdisciplinary academic with proven abilities to carry out teaching and research in, environment and development? Are you developing an excellent research record and have clear potential for success in obtaining funding? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University?
The Sustainability Research Institute (SRI) in the School of Earth and Environment is looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated interdisciplinary environmental and social scientist with a focus on environment and development, to join our world-leading team of researchers. Following recent successes in student recruitment and grant income from a range of funders (including UKRI, Horizon Europe and the Global Challenges Research Fund), we are seeking to build our portfolio of excellent teaching and research on pressing environment and development issues. We are specifically looking for someone whose work complements that of our current team, and who can add depth and breadth to this subject specialism and to the interdisciplinary nature of our School.
SRI is an internationally leading centre for research in the environmental social sciences. Our research specialisms include environment and development, environmental policy and economics for sustainability, energy and climate change mitigation, social and political dimensions of sustainability, and business and organisations for sustainable societies. For this position we are seeking applicants working on cross-cutting issues in environment and development in low and middle income countries, such as biodiversity conservation and development, climate resilience pathways to development, environmental risk and disaster management, sustainable food systems, livelihoods and ecosystems services for poverty alleviation, and environmental justice. We are interested in candidates with clear potential for a strong track record of publications and funding applications. Interdisciplinary expertise across the environmental sciences and environmental social sciences and a willingness to work in collaboration with colleagues across the institute and across multiple disciplines is highly desirable.
You will contribute to student education across the sustainability suite of undergraduate and Masters programmes that focus on environment and development and broader sustainability. This will include field courses, research dissertations and placement projects.
