Permanent Sustainability Research Fellow opportunity

Permanent Sustainability Research Fellow opportunity

The Global Sustainability Institute (Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK) is looking to recruit a new permanent Research Fellow, who will bring a strong portfolio of research to complement the existing work of our collaborative and interdisciplinary institute. Whilst the post-holder will join at Research Fellow level, the career ladder will allow for subsequent progressions to Senior Research Fellow, Principal Research Fellow/Reader, and Professor. Details are available here.

Since the GSI was established in 2011, it has built a reputation for high impact publications across a broad range of sustainability issues. We are part of the £6m ESRC Centre for Understanding Sustainable Prosperity, have won grants from five of the seven UK research councils (ESRC, EPSRC, AHRC, BBSRC, NERC), are currently leading three EU projects (e.g. SHAPE ENERGY) as well as contributing to others (e.g. MEDEAS), and also received recognition for world-leading research and impact in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).

The GSI has three research themes (Consumption & Change; Education for Sustainability; Global Risk & Resilience), and the new post-holder will have the opportunity to work within, across and/or between these themes. The backgrounds of our academic staff are diverse and encompass economics, geography, international relations, psychology, sociology, science and technology studies, environmental social science, climate change, mathematics and computer modelling.

The closing date is 10 September 2017. Interviews will take place on 4 October 2017. Informal enquiries before application are welcome.
