The University of Hull is looking to hire a Y-PERN (Yorkshire and Humber Policy Engagement and Research Network) Policy Fellow based in the Energy and Environment Institute (EEI), working closely with academic colleagues across the University, in particular with Prof Gerald Midgley (Co-Director of the Centre for Systems Studies – a transdisciplinary research institute) who will co-supervise. Y-PERN (https://yorkshireuniversities.ac.uk/y-pern/) is a novel network-based approach to inclusive and place-based academic policy engagement and research, led by Leeds University Business School and working with Yorkshire Universities (a regional partnership of 12 Higher Education Institutions). Y-PERN Policy Fellows are impact focused academic positions, reflecting the increasing importance of the impact agenda in academia, and they form a bridge between academia and the policy world.
The post holder will also work closely with the Y-PERN Chief Policy Fellow, Dr Richard Whittle (Leeds Business School), and with all the other Y-PERN Fellows and teams spanning Yorkshire and the Humber. The specific responsibilities of this Policy Fellow role will focus on Hull and East Yorkshire, working closely with the Hull City and East Riding of Yorkshire Councils, and the Hull and East Yorkshire LEP as well as other key regional stakeholders.
The post will be based in the vibrant Energy and Environment Institute (EEI), one of the University’s flagship research institutes, which was established in the University of Hull to enable collaboration between key stakeholders and between disciplines.
