Applications are invited for a Research Associate to work with Dr Lynn Dicks on evidence synthesis to inform environmental policy decisions. This is an exciting opportunity to join an international, interdisciplinary team of biodiversity and ecosystem researchers working at the science-policy interface. It is funded under the EU Horizon 2020 programme, as part of the Eklipse project

The post provides support to the Eklipse Methods Expert Group, gathering and documenting data for knowledge synthesis exercises, organising meetings, drafting guidance notes and co-authoring scientific papers. In the job, you will liaise with environmental decision-makers in policy, business and the third sector across Europe and have a chance to develop skills and experience in particular knowledge synthesis methods.

Although the research is based at the University of East Anglia in the School of Biological Sciences, it will involve periodic travel to Europe.

You will be expected to have a degree in biological science, ecology, environmental science, political science, economics or geography, along with a strong interest in science communication or environmental policy. You must also meet all the essential elements of the person specification. 

The post is for a fixed term of 21 months (if full time) and commences 1 February 2018. Working part time (80% time) could also be considered, if preferred.
