£42,036 to £48,677 per annum
The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and the School of International Development (DEV) at UEA seek to recruit a talented, ambitious and self motivated lecturer in the area of climate change and international development. This appointment will add to internationally renowned research in the UK’s Tyndall Centre on the risks, trade-offs and opportunities arising from climate change, and in DEV on alleviating poverty through climate policy actions. Successful candidates will develop an international profile of research and teaching that complements existing strengths in DEV and UEA.
The specific research areas for this post include interactions between climate change mitigation and adaptation and their effects on poverty. That the impacts of climate change will affect the poorest and most vulnerable people in the world is well established. Climate change is embedded within the same complex and interconnected socio-economic, political, technological, industrial and environmental systems as poverty and inequality. In an unequal world, what does the imperative to mitigate and adapt to climate change mean and for whom?
You must have a PhD in any field, but with relevance to climate change, sustainability, and international development, along with research and teaching experience, a track record in securing funding, and strong publication track record in international journals. You must be a team player and a strong communicator interested in interdisciplinary and policy-relevant climate change research. The Lecturer will work across the Tyndall Centre and the School of International Development at UEA.
This full time indefinite post is available from November 2019, or as soon as possible thereafter.
Closing date: 30 September 2019.
