Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out teaching and research in sustainability, environment, and global development? Do you have an excellent research record and proven success in obtaining funding? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University?

The Sustainability Research Institute (SRI) within the School of Earth and Environment is looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated environmental social scientist with a focus on sustainability, environment, and global development to join our world-leading team of researchers. Following recent successes in student recruitment and grant income from a range of funders (including the Global Challenges Research Fund), we are seeking to build our portfolio of excellent teaching and research on pressing sustainability, environment, and development issues. We are seeking applicants whose work complements that of our current team, working on cross-cutting issues such as inequality, conflict, migration, ecosystem services, biodiversity conservation, climate change, sustainable cities, and sustainable food systems (including agriculture).

SRI is an internationally leading centre for research in the environmental social sciences. Our research specialisms include environment and development, economics and policy for sustainability, energy and climate change mitigation, social and political dimensions of sustainability, and business and organisations for sustainable societies.

You will contribute to student education across the sustainability suite of undergraduate and Masters programmes that focus on environment and global development. This will include field courses, research dissertations, and placement projects. 

With a PhD in a relevant subject area, you will also have experience of engaging with global development issues through a network of international partners and research outputs. You will also have a proven track record of publications and funding applications.
