The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) is seeking to appoint a Fellow (0.8 FTE ¿ full-time, 18 months) in sustainable finance under The Prince of Wales Global Sustainability Fellowship Programme. Funding for the Fellowship has been secured through a philanthropic donation from Heathrow Airport LtD but academic stewardship of the Programme lies with CISL.

The Fellowship builds on research conducted over the last 16 months by Dr Bojun Wang who previously held the title of Prince of Wales Fellow.
