Lecturer in Energy & Climate Change

University of East Anglia - School of Environmental Sciences and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research

Faculty of Science

(0.5 FTE)

The School of Environmental Sciences is one of the largest and longest established academic departments in Europe to focus on the study of the global environment; and hosts the headquarters of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research.

You will contribute to honours-level undergraduate and MSc teaching on topics in the general area of energy production and consumption (including fossil fuels and renewable energy), energy and climate policy, energy transitions and sustainability, and their interactions with socio-economic factors (depending in part on your expertise). Some contributions to social science methods teaching will also be expected.  The teaching will be delivered through a mixture of lectures, practical exercises, dissertation supervision and a field course, including marking and the associated student feedback. You will be expected to take on some related administrative duties, undertake undergraduate and graduate supervision of projects, and support advisees. You will have the opportunity and be encouraged to develop some new teaching material.

You will be a core faculty member of the Tyndall Centre and be expected to participate in Tyndall activities (e.g. attend the annual Assembly and seminars).  

Along with a PhD (or demonstrable expertise through publications or teaching) in Energy and Climate Change, or a closely related social science subject, applicants  should have expertise in energy transitions in relation to climate mitigation targets, and be able to fulfil all essential elements of the person specification.

This part-time (0.5 FTE) Lectureship is available from 1 September 2017 for a fixed term period of 3 years. This teaching post could be combined with a part-time research position, if the candidate has such research funding.

We welcome applicants from all protected groups as defined by the Equality Act 2010 and, in particular, those from Black or other minority ethnic backgrounds.

Closing date:  31 August 2017.

The School is a Bronze Athena Swan Award holder, currently working towards Silver
