CFP, EASA meeting Belfast, July 26-29

Energy anthropology is gaining traction: we have two official EAN panels at the EASA2022 in Belfast! Please check them out and propose papers for:

P043 – Commoning-decommoning dynamics in climate and energy politics (https://easaonline.org/conferences/easa2022/programme#11535)
P091 – Energy transition(s): The promises of renewables and future of the commons (https://easaonline.org/conferences/easa2022/programme#11519)

Deadline for paper submissions is March 21.

There are at least two more panels (P022 and P128) that have a strong energy focus – so we’re looking forward to an engaging conference!

Permanent Research Fellow job opportunity: Interdisciplinary social sciences for sustainability Headlines

Based at Global Sustainability Institute, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK.   

Application deadline: Monday 28 March 2022

Start date: negotiable, likely June 2022 onwards

 Global Sustainability Institute (GSI)Over the past 10 years, the GSI has built a global reputation for delivering research impact and high-quality publications across a broad range of sustainability issues. The GSI undertakes interdisciplinary, action-focussed Social Sciences and Humanities research to support transformations towards sustainable and just societies. The GSI has a particular interest in research that has the potential for real-world impact, and thus has a wide portfolio of applied projects that focus on working with e.g. European Commission, UK Government, local authorities, charities and NGOs, business and industry, etc. Most notably for this post, we have led the €1m European Innovation Forum for energy-related Social Sciences and Humanities (Energy-SHIFTS, 2019-2021) and its €2m predecessor EU platform (SHAPE ENERGY, 2017-2019), and have recently been awarded coordination of the forthcoming €3m European Centre of Excellence for Social Sciences and Humanities research on climate, energy and mobility (SSH CENTRE, 2022-26). We are coordinating the newly launched €5m SHARED GREEN DEAL (2022-2027), which is implementing 24 social experiments across Europe on Green Deal priority areas. We have also received funding from six of the seven UK Research Councils (ESRC, EPSRC, NERC, AHRC, BBSRC, STFC), for example being part of major UKRI centres such as the ESRC’sCentre for Understanding Sustainable Prosperity and EPSRC’s EnergyREV.  

The positionThis is an exciting opportunity to build your own research portfolio in areas that are complementary to the GSI’s current research on the social studies of sustainability/energy transformations. You’ll start off as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, but there will be ample possibilities to continue progression up the research career ladder (to e.g. Senior Research Fellow; Principal Research Fellow or Associate Professor; Professor). Candidates will be expected to bring their own ideas for development, but will also be given the opportunity to collaborate with GSI colleagues on funding proposals already under development.
