The University of Manchester is seeking to appoint two Research Associates for the Sustainable Forest Transitions (SFT) project. SFT is a five-year, £1.7 million project funded as part of a UKRI Research Frontier grant based within the Global Development Institute in the School of Environment, Education and Development. The SFT project will conduct ground-breaking research to better understand how reforestation drivers affect forests and the communities that depend on them. Over the next five years, SFT will study the changing nature of forest cover and human development at unprecedented scale and detail. The SFT project will start working in Mexico, Brazil, India, and Nepal and very possibly expand to other countries. These two posts offer the opportunity for outstanding individuals to make a significant contribution to an exciting international sustainability research programme based at the University of Manchester. For a clearer sense of SFT’s research agenda, please see the publications pages of the project’s website (https://sites.manchester.ac.uk/sftresearch/).

SFT is looking for early career scholars interested in offering new perspectives on socio-environmental systems. We therefore expect you to have a relevant PhD or equivalent (or have completed your PhD by the time your appointment starts), most likely in environmental economics, political science, geography, or conservation science. However, we also welcome applications from those who have combined theoretical and data-driven approaches to address problems in other fields.

The primary criterion for appointment will be research excellence in any area(s) broadly related to the project. You will therefore be able to demonstrate outstanding promise in your field to contribute to world-leading innovations in scholarship and research

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.
