The School of Biological Sciences is seeking to appoint two Academics at Senior Lecturer and Lecturer level to the Gibson Institute. These posts will conduct research in the economics/finance of the environment, agri-food, behaviour, or health to contribute to the Belfast Region City Deal (BRCD), and wider Regional Growth Deals in Northern Ireland.

In particular, these posts will foster collaboration with the Global Innovation Institute (GII), by working on large data sets on the economics or finance of health and or agri-food to find solutions that deliver healthier lives for citizens, underpin the scientific integrity of the Northern Ireland Green Deal, and benefit the economy and society locally, by driving the 10x Economy in Northern Ireland, and globally, by assessing the costs and the benefits of different strategies to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions.

These positions, situated within the School of Biological Sciences and the Institute for Global Food Security, will collaborate with researchers at the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute (AFBI) as part of the QUB – AFBI Alliance and with key stakeholders in food security, agriculture, the environment or health. These positions will play a vital role in interdisciplinary teaching, contributing to undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PGT) programs within the School of Biological Sciences. Their expertise will span various domains, including leadership, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, environmental management, environmental assessment, economics, and life cycle analysis. It is envisaged that one post will focus on Environmental Economics and one post on Environmental Assessment/Lifecycle Analysis.

By imparting their knowledge in these areas, these posts will help nurture the skills of future generations who will serve as stewards of the environment, and experts in land use and agri-food. This investment in education aligns with our commitment to addressing pressing global challenges, fostering sustainability, and nurturing a new breed of professionals equipped to make a difference in the world, as well as contributing to the 10x Economy for Northern Ireland.

Appointees are expected to broaden the School and Institutes research capabilities whilst complementing our existing strengths.
