|Closes:||12th May 2023|
The Leverhulme Centre for Nature Recovery (LCNR) at the University of Oxford has been established with 10 years of funding to address the challenge of delivering effective and socially inclusive nature recovery at scale. Providing sufficient financial resources and prioritisation is among the greatest challenges facing nature recovery.
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of an ambitious research and engagement programme on one of the most high-profile environmental issues. Providing sufficient financial resources and prioritisation is among the greatest challenges facing nature recovery.
As a Senior Research Associate for Nature Recovery Finance you will be working with a team of multidisciplinary researchers to conceptualise, develop and scale a financial architecture that can sustainably resource nature recovery at the scale required.
Reporting to the Director of the Oxford Sustainable Finance Group and a Co-Director of LCNR we are looking for an emerging leader in their field, who brings demonstrable research and teaching skills and expertise in sustainable finance. The role is balanced between research (up to 90%) and teaching (minimum 10%).
The successful candidate must hold a relevant PhD/DPhil with significant research experience in either business, economics, finance, or law. Candidates should demonstrate a deep interest in scholarship and engagement that addresses environmental challenges.
Whilst the role is a Grade 8 (£43,414 p.a.) position, we would be willing to consider candidates with potential but less experience who are seeking a development opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at Grade 7 (£34,308 - £42,155 p.a.) with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly.
Applications are particularly welcome and encouraged from women, black, and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in posts in SoGE. SoGE is committed to equality and values diversity.
This is a fixed term post for 36 months with the possibility of extension depending on funding.
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
The closing date for applications is 12:00 noon on Friday 12 May 2023, and interviews will be held May/June 2023.
