Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out teaching and research in sustainability consultancy and business?

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 sustainability consultancy and business, to join our world-leading team of researchers. Following recent successes in student recruitment and grant income from a range of funders (including UKRI and the Global Challenges Research Fund), we are seeking to strengthen our portfolio of excellent teaching and research on pressing sustainability consultancy and business issues. 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 specialisms include business and organisations for sustainable societies, environment and development, economics and policy for sustainability, energy and climate change mitigation, social and political dimensions of sustainability, and climate change adaptation, vulnerability and services. For this position, we are seeking applicants working on cross-cutting business and organisational issues such as development of sustainable cities, climate change, environmental and disaster risk management, climate finance, land use and food systems, resource extraction/mining or energy systems.

Issues could be tackled from a variety of perspectives, including organisational change and leadership, innovative business models, circular economy, green/climate finance, project management, multi-stakeholder partnerships and policy analysis.

We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in project management and consultancy in a practice context. You will contribute to student education across the Sustainability suite of undergraduate and Masters programmes that focus on business and consultancy, in particular our prestigious MSc Sustainability and Consultancy. This will include field courses, research dissertations and placement projects. 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.
