Do you have a genuine interest in sustainability?

We are looking for a motivated, self-reliant individual to help support the work of the Centre.

Through training and external engagement activities, the Centre also aims to give both academics and PhD students the skills and opportunities to engage with public and policy debates about sustainability issues.

This is an exciting opportunity to join an expanding, high profile research centre at The University of Sheffield. You will work collaboratively across all five academic faculties.
