Bournemouth University's vision is worldwide recognition as a leading university for inspiring learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society through the fusion of education, research and practice. Our highly skilled and creative workforce is comprised of individuals drawn from a broad cross section of the globe, who reflect a variety of backgrounds, talents, perspectives and experiences that help to build our global learning community.

The Department of Life and Environmental Sciences is leading the project ‘Resolving the extinction crisis: sustainable and technological solutions for biodiversity and society', which also involves other researchers across BU (including Bournemouth University Business School) and external partners. Within the project, we are seeking to appoint a talented, enthusiastic and motivated Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in social science (as it shapes sustainable food choice and responsible business practice), who will work alongside three other Post-Doctoral positions that cover a range of other technical disciplines.

You will have well developed competencies in sustainable consumer choice and policy implication. You will have expertise in environmentally responsible food systems and how this can relate to business practice. Analysing data will enable development of novel approaches that encourage individual and business reflection to a standard appropriate for publication.

Applications with expertise in both qualitative and quantitative methodology are expected to assess knowledge on the relationships between biodiversity and society and how resulting consumer choices and business practices align with public policy in sustainable land use.

This position is available on a fixed-term basis until 1 February 2026.

For further and informal discussions, please contact the Principal Investigator of the project, Professor Robert Britton, at the Department of Life and Environmental Sciences, email:rbritton@bournemouth.ac.uk or technical lead Professor Heather Hartwell at Bournemouth University Business School hhartwell@bournemouth.ac.uk.

BU values and is committed to an inclusive working environment. We seek a diverse community through attracting, developing and retaining staff from different backgrounds to contribute to inspirational learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society. To support and enable our staff to achieve a balance between work and their personal lives, we will also consider proposals for flexible working or job share arrangements.
