The post is a three year ‘tenure track’ position, which means that, subject to funding availability and satisfactory academic performance, the contract may be extended.
Working within an interdisciplinary group including sociologists, anthropologists, geographers, psychologists and economists, this post contributes to the development of social scientific research on person-environment relationships. The postholder will be expected to contribute to a portfolio of work in the SEGS department, and will be encouraged to develop their own theoretical approach to understanding people-environment relationships as part of a group of researchers working on ‘People and Places’. The main purpose of this post is to develop and implement transdisciplinary and applied research on planning and people-environment relationships. The postholder will contribute to the successful delivery of a portfolio of policy-focused research with a strong theoretical underpinning.
This requires an individual who combines a strong social science background with an interest in making an impact on policy and practice. Tasks will include research design, primary and secondary data collection and analysis; knowledge exchange/co-construction and publishing in scientific journals.
