You will join us to extend our activities in areas such as water governance, attitudes and behaviours, and vulnerability and resilience. You will be involved in leading our contribution to an EC FP7 project which draws on contemporary theories of risk and resilience to characterise sources of adaptive potential in Urban Water Cycle Services, and design, test and refine tools to support stakeholders in exploiting such potential.
You will also lead the authoring of academic papers, conference presentations, and reports to various stakeholder groups and take on responsibility for managing some post-graduate training, co-supervising research students and authoring research proposals.
You will be a talented, early stage researcher with well-developed written and oral communication skills, keen to extend your academic, management and leadership profile. You will have a PhD in an appropriate field (i.e. relevant to the social, political, governance, or planning aspects of water management), with demonstrative proficiency in both qualitative and quantitative research methods.
Post-doctoral experience in an active research environment, a good working knowledge of water resource management issues and a proven track record of high quality journal publication are also important. Applications from those with an interdisciplinary background or experience working in cross-disciplinary teams would be particularly welcome.
