Applications are invited for a Research Associate position to work on the new project 'Investigating the social implications of 30x30' funded by the Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) at the University of Cambridge. The post holder will be a member of the Department of Geography and will work in interdisciplinary Conservation Research Institute in the David Attenborough Building, under the guidance of Professor Chris Sandbrook (https://www.geog.cam.ac.uk/people/sandbrook/).

Despite its grand scale and potential impact, minimal research has been conducted into the potential social implications of ambitious schemes for Area Based Conservation such as 30x30, and how they might be addressed. The SNAPP project is bringing together a working group of scholars and practitioners from multiple backgrounds to conduct research on this topic and influence future policy and practice. This will be achieved through a series of carefully facilitated workshops and collaborative analysis of existing datasets at the global and national level. The PDRA will play a critical role in the project, carrying out analysis, preparing publications, working with impact partners and supporting PI Chris Sandbrook with project management tasks. As well as building their research skills and publication record, the role holder will have the chance to develop their leadership and management skills, and to strengthen their international networks.

Eligible candidates must have a PhD in Geography, Land Systems Science or a related discipline. A strong background in geospatial analysis and handling large datasets is essential. Applicants must also have proven experience of publishing high-quality research articles. They must be highly motivated and should have excellent time management, organisational and communication skills, and be able to work well as part of a team.

The successful candidate will be based in Cambridge, with occasional international trips to attend project workshops. They will have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of departmental and University activities, including the departmental 'Vital Geographies' research group, departmental seminars, and reading groups across the University. They will also have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities taking place in the David Attenborough Building, which is home to the Cambridge Conservation Initiative partnership of the University of Cambridge and nine international conservation NGOs and networks.
