We are looking to appoint a Climate Research Forum (CRF) Coordinator to The Oxford Sustainable Law Programme (SLP), based in the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment (SSEE). The Forum Coordinator will report to the SLP Director.
The CRF has two overarching aims: 1) facilitate cross-jurisdictional and cross-disciplinary learning, and 2) address the ‘evidentiary gap’ between the available frontier of research and the evidence used in courts in climate litigation cases. Members will share insights from their experience practicing in different jurisdictions, present best-practice research, and propose strategic research projects based on identified research gaps.
The CRF Coordinator will be responsible for leading the ongoing strategic development of the forum, building on existing efforts, and in line with the agreed objectives and purpose of the forum.
The successful candidate will have possession of a Law degree or deep knowledge of the dynamics of strategic litigation with additional knowledge of climate and/or environmental law. Experience of developing, managing, or leading communities or collaborations– either in NGO sector, academia, or commercial/corporate sector is essential. Being knowledgeable about climate change, the scientific basis and international dialogue on related topics is required. It is essential to have proven organisational and project management skills and be a clear, concise, and careful written and verbal communicator.
The appointment will be available 80% FTE to 100% FTE.
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 09 January 2024, and interviews will be held mid-January 2024.
