Are you interested in the emerging subject area of circular economy for wind turbines? Would you like to investigate how we can establish more resilient and sustainable supply chains for the wind industry in the UK? Are you keen to deliver high impact research with industry and government partners outside of academia? 

This strategic role will help to expand the University of Leeds’ pipeline of research on circular economy solutions for the wind industry. You will investigate current wind supply chains from foundation industries such as cement and steel, to original equipment manufacturers, wind developers and operators, companies offering innovative circular wind products and services, and the decommissioning industry.

You will analyse current industrial capabilities in the UK and identify opportunities for green reindustrialisation through research, development, and innovation. You will investigate previous efforts to support local supply chain development and prepare recommendations for further support programmes.

You will engage with industry and policy representatives to understand their perspectives, capabilities, and needs. This will likely involve site visits, preparing and carrying out surveys and interviews, and facilitating workshops. You will translate research findings into accessible materials for diverse stakeholders in industry and government, alongside the preparation of academic peer-reviewed outputs.

You will be encouraged to develop funding bids with a view to establish yourself as a member of Leeds’ circular wind team. You will work at the cutting edge of knowledge and practice, collaborating in a supportive interdisciplinary environment with ample opportunity for your continued professional development.
