Postdoctoral Researcher (UKRI funded project ) x 2 Ref 10732

University of Sussex - International Relations/ Global Studies

Location: Falmer
Salary: From £42,155 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 25th January 2023
Closes: 3rd March 2023
Job Ref: 10732

Professor Peter Newell is looking to hire two postdoctoral researchers (PDRAs) for four years each to work on a UKRI Frontier Research Grant (formerly an ERC Advanced Grant) looking at the political dynamics of supply-side climate policies. These are policies being adopted to limit the production and supply of fossil fuels such as bans, moratoria, phase-out policies and subsidy removals that are being adopted by a growing number of countries around the world. The project seeks to understand where these policies are being adopted, how and by whom and what can be done internationally to support their wider adoption.

The PDRAs will be expected to conduct fieldwork in ‘first mover’ countries to understand these dynamics and to contribute to both the theoretical elements of the project and the forward-looking scenario work on possible futures for supply-side policies. The selection of countries the PDRA will be expected to work in will depend on final case selection and the language and research skills of the successful applicants.

The research will involve conducting semi-structured interviews (at least 20 in each country) in collaboration with the PI with key actors involved in the decision-making process around the adoption of supply-side policies. This will include a range of government officials from different government departments, representatives from business and civil society organisations and international actors active in the country (such as donors, banks, business and civil society associations).

In addition to conducting fieldwork, the PDRAs will be expected to:

  • help organise and analyse the data and contribute to research papers for publication
  • conduct literature reviews
  • present the research at academic conferences and policy and activist facing events
  • contribute to the scenarios on future pathways to supply-side adoption in ‘second mover’ countries
  • contribute to the management of the project, meetings and reporting of activities
