Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out teaching and research in ecological and/or environmental economics?

Do you have an excellent research record and proven success obtaining funding?

Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University?

The Sustainability Research Institute (SRI) in the School of Earth and Environment is looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated environmental social scientist with a focus on ecological and/or environmental economics to join our world-leading team of researchers. Following recent successes in student recruitment and grant income from a range of funders, we are seeking to build our portfolio of excellent teaching and research in ecological and/or environmental economics. We are specifically looking for someone whose work complements, and adds depth and breadth to that of our current team.

SRI is an internationally leading centre for research in the environmental social sciences. Our research groups include economics and policy for sustainability; business and organisations for sustainable societies; environment and development; energy and climate change mitigation; social and political dimensions of sustainability; and climate change adaptation, vulnerability and services.

For this position, we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in the broad field of ecological and/or environmental economics. Successful candidates will need to show a proven track record of publications and funding applications. A willingness to work in collaboration with colleagues across the institute and wider University is also essential.

You will contribute to student education across the School's undergraduate and Masters Sustainability programmes that focus on ecological economics, sustainability and business, and sustainability and consultancy. This will include research dissertations, field courses, and placement projects.
