The Centre for Energy Policy, based in the School of Government and Public Policy within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Strathclyde works with research, government and industry partners to understand and address the pressing public policy challenge of enabling sustainable and prosperous transitions to mid-century Net Zero targets. Launched in 2015 under the leadership of the Centre Director, Professor Karen Turner, CEP has an established track record of independent, rigorous and multidisciplinary research focused on understanding the wider economy consequences of taking various decarbonisation actions in different economic contexts and timeframes. The Centre was founded with the aim of generating knowledge and evidence that can play an essential part in identifying economically, socially and politically feasible policy pathways to deliver the Net Zero transition. As part of the School of Government and Public Policy, ranked first across the UK for its research quality in politics and international studies in REF 2021 (where CEP contributed a 4* Impact Case Study), the Centre is committed to achieving real-world impacts. CEP has already helped shape UK and Scottish Government policy in areas including energy efficiency, industrial decarbonisation, heat decarbonisation and low carbon transport and has a regular regional and national media presence.

We are seeking an impact-focused Reader (from any disciplinary background and interest that complements CEP’s current activity and wider public policy impact focus) with research, knowledge exchange and postgraduate teaching/training interest and experience to join CEP to play a key role in expanding our portfolio and further build our team. It is essential that candidates have a good honours degree and PhD (or equivalent) in appropriate discipline and can evidence a profile as an externally recognised authority with an established national and emerging international reputation, alongside extending CEP’s reach through building and exploiting policy, industry and other external networks, and engaging in regular media engagement.

Another priority is the recruitment of new PhD students and building multi-disciplinary CDT activity, and possibly extending our offerings to linked postgraduate teaching and professional training. Crucial to this second senior academic role in CEP will generally be supporting the intellectual leadership of the CEP team and support the Director in high level policy and public engagement, where the successful applicant will be invited to take on the role of Deputy Director of the Centre.

Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Professor Karen Turner, Director of the Centre for Energy Policy, at karen.turner@strath.ac.uk).
