We are looking to appoint a Research Associate in Climate Damages Analysis to the Climate Litigation Lab and the Sustainable Law Programme at the Smith School of Enterprise and Environment (SSEE), School of Geography and the Environment (SoGE).

Reporting to Dr Benjamin Franta, Senior Research Fellow in Climate Litigation, the post holder will be a member of a research group with responsibility for carrying out research for the Climate Litigation Lab’s work to inform climate damages litigation. The post holder will provide guidance to junior members of the research group including research assistants, PhD students, and/or project volunteers.

The post holder will develop and deliver high-value, innovative scientific research outputs, including peer reviewed articles, to inform and shape climate damages litigation across jurisdictions globally. You will communicate effectively and form working connections with external groups and stakeholders from a range of sectors, including litigators, NGOs, private sector representatives, regulatory bodies, and more.

You will have evidence of potential for producing research of world-leading quality on climate damages attribution and/or quantification during the tenure of the post. You will need an ability to develop, prioritize, and execute high-impact research agendas independently and in collaboration with others. An ability to collaborate with researchers from other fields, including fields that may be unfamiliar to the post holder, is essential. You will have excellent communication skills, including the ability to write for publication, present research proposals and results, and represent the research group at meetings.
