Summary

Hughes Hall intends to establish a major new research initiative in Climate Law and Governance in conjunction with its Centre for Climate Engagement. This position will focus on public and administrative law and this position will be expected to focus on the application of the specialist legal discipline to climate change. This role can be extended up to three years, subject to successful probation of twelve months. The applicant will have expertise in their respective fields of law and an enthusiasm for their application to climate law, but need not have detailed knowledge of climate law itself.

Your experience

The Climate Law and Governance Programme of the Centre will focus on the legal, regulatory and governance aspects of climate change. The postholder will be expected to produce legal scholarship on aspects of administrative and public law and their application to climate change. The focus might, for example, be on how climate change risks and opportunities should be addressed by local authorities in relation to their planning or transport responsibilities; to climate change mitigation; to the scope of their powers in relation to climate change; to implications for public law; to the obligations of public authorities, or to their implementation of the Paris Agreement.

The post holder will demonstrate excellence in their respective fields of expertise and an enthusiasm for their application to climate change and of how law may be used to further the mitigation of or adaptation to climate change. A working knowledge of climate and environmental law would be an advantage but is not an essential requirement for application for the post.

The Centre for Climate Engagement will seek to act as an independent and trusted intermediary between Cambridge academia, the corporate and financial communities and government, and the postholder will be expected to prove legal input into the Centre.
