The Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance (CCAF) is an international and interdisciplinary research centre dedicated to the study of alternative finance, focusing on new financial instruments and channels of finance emerging outside of the traditional financial system in the areas of alternative financing channels, alternative approaches to credit analytics and alternative payment systems.
The purpose of this position is to take a leading role in driving forward the research agenda under the Cambridge Digital Assets Programme (CDAP), a unique public-private research initiative undertaken in collaboration with 16 world-leading institutions from the financial and development sectors. As part of this initiative, you will contribute to the development and promotion of open-access datasets, insights, and tools serving as public goods to facilitate a balanced public dialogue about opportunities and risks of digital asset activities. This involves the scoping, conceptualisation, implementation, and dissemination of impactful research projects related to the Climate Aspects workstream, the management and coordination of a diverse team of contributors.
You will possess extensive experience in, and knowledge of, the digital assets and blockchain consensus ecosystem (proof-of-work, proof-of-stake, and alternative mechanisms) based on multiple years of active and direct involvement, with a proper understanding of the common jargon, tools, methods, processes, and best practices of the discipline. You will have demonstratable track record in conducting and delivering high-quality research on digital assets activities and their corresponding environmental footprint that is of interest to industry, policymakers and regulators, and other researchers. You will be driven and committed, demonstrating initiative and self-motivation. Experience in climate science, environmental considerations, and/or ESG is strongly preferred.
This is a fixed term appointment until 31 July 2023 in the first instance.
