We are looking to appoint a Research Associate in Climate Damages Analysis to the Climate Litigation Lab and the Sustainable Law Programme at the Smith School of Enterprise and Environment (SSEE), School of Geography and the Environment (SoGE).

Reporting to Dr Benjamin Franta, Senior Research Fellow in Climate Litigation, the post holder will be a member of a research group with responsibility for carrying out research for the Climate Litigation Lab's work to inform climate damages litigation. The post holder will provide guidance to junior members of the research group including research assistants, PhD students, and/or project volunteers.

The post holder will develop and deliver high-value, innovative scientific research outputs, including peer reviewed articles, to inform and shape climate damages litigation across jurisdictions globally. You will communicate effectively and form working connections with external groups and stakeholders from a range of sectors, including litigators, NGOs, private sector representatives, regulatory bodies, and more. The successful candidate will be expected to drive and steer the research agenda for high impact in conjunction with the broader Climate Litigation Lab, Sustainable Law Programme, and Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment. You will manage academic research and administrative activities. This involves small scale project management to coordinate multiple aspects of work and meet deadlines.

You will hold a relevant PhD/DPhil. You will have evidence of potential for producing research of world-leading quality on climate damages attribution and/or quantification during the tenure of the post. You will need an ability to develop, prioritize, and execute high-impact research agendas independently and in collaboration with others. An ability to collaborate with researchers from other fields, including fields that may be unfamiliar to the post holder, is essential. You will have excellent communication skills, including the ability to write for publication, present research proposals and results, and represent the research group at meetings.

Applications are particularly welcome and encouraged from women, black, and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in posts in SoGE. SoGE and SSEE are committed to equality and value diversity.

This post is fixed term for 2 years in the first instance.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 19 July 2024, and interviews will be taking place in late-July/early-August.
