Established in 2001, the Sustainability Research Institute was one of the first dedicated sustainability research institutes in the UK. We have since built an excellent international reputation by applying our ground-breaking research and development across the globe.
Our work focuses on a range of emerging research fields and current urban and rural sustainability challenges. To address these, our focus is centred on three key themes:
The SRI reflects UEL's tradition of cross-disciplinary knowledge transfer. Working with partners across the UK and around the world, our work addresses the critical issues for creating more resilient urban and rural communities. Our recent success in securing substantial research and knowledge exchange funding, including FP7, Horizon 2020 and ERDF funding, has provided a strong foundation for further development and collaboration with external stakeholders.
The SRI is seeking to recruit a Research Fellow for an eighteen-month contract to support the Green Infrastructure Team in delivering the UKRI-funded research project BIURBS. The candidate will support the SRI’s team of researchers and programme managers working on the BIURBS project to deliver a variety of high-quality research outputs building from a process of peer-reviewed and grey literature systematic review, and stakeholder engagement workshops. Working in partnership with University of Manchester, University of the West of England and the architectural practice Stolon Studios, you will contribute to unlocking new understanding of the ‘value’ of biodiversity in urban developments, and how different biodiversity planning tools deliver for biodiversity conservation in urban areas.
One of the main duties of this role will be collaborating with the SRI Green Infrastructure Team to support research project delivery for the BIURDS project. You will also be responsible for the review and synthesis of existing literature related to urban biodiversity delivery in developments and emerging nature-based solutions approaches.
Futher duties of this role will include developing and delivering stakeholder workshops to explore user experience of urban biodiversity planning tools and supporting the dissemination of research outcomes and guidance to support practitioners in delivering biodiversity outcomes through urban development projects and developing the next generation of biodiversity planning tools.
