Research Fellow in Place-Based Decarbonisation

University of Leeds - Faculty of Environment - Institute for Transport Studies

Location: Leeds
Salary: £37,099 to £44,263 per annum (Grade 7)
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract

Closes: 12th January 2024
Job Ref: ENVTR1186

Are you an experienced and ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge?   Do you have a research background in understanding how future energy demand will change and how this can be shaped by place? Do you want to be part of a major multi-site inter-disciplinary research centre aiming to support a fair and fast transition to zero carbon and lower energy demand futures? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive universities?

This is a unique opportunity to join the new Energy Demand Research Centre. EDRC informs and inspires energy demand reductions that support an affordable and secure low energy future. Collaborating with partners across policy, industry, civil society and academia, EDRC will deliver a world-leading transformative and interdisciplinary research programme that identifies and shapes evidence-based energy demand reductions for a sustainable and more equitable future. EDRC is supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and the Economic and Social Research Council

EDRC is organised around five themes (Futures, Place, Flexibility, Equity and Governance). Located in the Place Theme this interdisciplinary role will be directly guided by Professor Greg Marsden with further cross-cutting work with Dr Kate Pangbourne (Governance lead) and Professor John Barrett (Futures lead), both based at the University of Leeds, and other Place related team members from across the consortium.

Holding a PhD (or submitted pending examination) in Geography, Environment, Engineering, Transportation or related topics, you will have an excellent working knowledge of how different aspects of pathways to zero carbon futures might impact on energy demand. The research will focus on the nexus of energy demand shifts, in particular across the transport and domestic energy sectors and how divergent this will be across places. Experience of how to approach understanding differences and challenges across different geographies and communities will be critical to the role.

The appointed researcher will contribute to research which assesses how to localise national energy demand reduction scenarios and then explores what the implications of different approaches might be in different places. The work will focus on the implications of different pathways for the deliverability of the transition including skills, costs and distributional issues.
