We seek applicants for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate (PDRA) to work on a project on environmental sustainability in immigrant households funded by the Leverhulme Trust. The project started in February 2021 and will end in early 2024. The successful applicant will join an international research team led by Sherilyn MacGregor and be based in the Sustainable Consumption Institute at the University of Manchester.

The project investigates how Global South to North migration and the drive for urban sustainability intersect at the household level. The location is Manchester, where increasing immigration and ethnic diversity combine with an agenda to become a leading green city in Europe. Through mixed-methods and community- based research, we are examining how immigrants from Pakistan and Somalia, two of the largest and fastest-growing groups in Manchester, perceive the green agenda and engage in 'environmentally-significant' practices in daily life. We are also investigating how immigrants’ engagement in sustainability practices can contribute to building social cohesion and community resilience. This project builds on pilot research, the findings of which we discuss in a 2019 journal article.   

The project description is available on the SCI website.

The Research Associate post will last for 20 months from 1st September 2022.

Interviews will be held on the 4th of August 2022. 

As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of age, sex, gender (or gender identity), ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status.  All appointments are made on merit.
