Description

Lecturer in Climate Change Adaptation (Teaching and Research)

Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out Social Science teaching and research in Climate Change Adaptation and related topics? Do you have an excellent research record and proven success obtaining funding? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University? Do you aspire to be an academic leader in your field?

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 climate change adaptation, to join our world-leading team of researchers.

Following recent successes in student recruitment and grant income from a range of funders and collaborative research (including UKRI, Horizon Europe, Met Office), we are seeking to expand our portfolio of excellent teaching and research in climate change adaptation. 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 climate change adaptation and climate services, energy and climate change mitigation, environment and development, environmental policy and economics for sustainability, 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 climate change adaptation, such as climate services, climate and development, climate risk and disaster management, climate governance, climate justice or climate change adaptation and mitigation linkages. We are interested in candidates with a strong track record of high quality publications and demonstrated funding potential. A willingness to work in collaboration with colleagues across the institute and across multiple disciplines is essential.

You will join the Climate Change Adaptation, Vulnerability and Services (CCAVS) research group. You will contribute to student education across the sustainability suite of undergraduate and Master's programmes that focus on climate change and broader sustainability issues. This will include programme development and management, research-led and field course teaching, and supervision of research dissertations and capstone projects.
