An opportunity has arisen for a Research Associate, jointly located at the Department of Politics and International Relations and the newly established South Yorkshire Sustainability Centre to work with Dr Matthew Wood on an innovative interdisciplinary research project focused on the implementation of Net Zero in public policy. You will be a creative researcher with experience of applying multiple research methods, dedicated to discovering how to make our world more sustainable.
You will work in collaboration with Dr Wood to develop an exciting programme of research on sustainability using multiple research methods. You will draw on South Yorkshire Sustainability Centre’s excellent research and practitioner networks both locally, nationally and internationally to co-produce research with a multi-disciplinary team.
