Cardiff University School of Psychology is seeking to appoint a Research Associate to conduct quantitative analyses and research relating to CAST’s work on public perceptions of climate change and low-carbon behaviour (e.g., active travel), and contribute to the overall research performance of CAST, the School and Cardiff University. The successful candidate will join the CAST research team in the School of Psychology at Cardiff University, and work closely with Prof Wouter Poortinga and other team members on the multi-wave, multi-country CAST survey and the longitudinal Cardiff Travel Survey to produce measurable academic and other research outputs.
The Centre for Climate Change & Social Transformations (CAST) is a £5m investment by ESRC, with core partners Cardiff University, the University of Bath, Manchester University, University of East Anglia, York University and Climate Outreach. The Centre is a global hub for understanding the profound changes required to address climate change. At its core, is a fundamental question of enormous social significance: how can we as a society live differently – and better – in ways that meet the urgent need for rapid and far-reaching emission reductions? The Centre focuses on people as agents of transformation in areas of everyday life that impact directly on climate change. We work across multiple scales (individual, community, organisational, national and global) to identify and experiment with various routes to achieving lasting change in these challenging areas. This research post will be embedded within Theme 1 (visioning) which aims to understand possible and preferred visions of future low-carbon societies. For further details about CAST, see: www.cast.ac.uk.
The post is full time, available immediately until 30 April 2024.
Salary: £39,347 - £44,263 per annum, (Grade 6). Please note that it is not expected that we will appoint above grade 6.32, currently £39,347 per annum.
Closing date: Thursday, 16 October 2023
