Thursday, September 1, 2022

This role has arisen as part of ongoing work related to the Future of Conservation Survey project. The Endangered Landscapes Programme has funded Fisher (University of Edinburgh) and Sandbrook (University of Cambridge) to advance work using environmental social science to develop an ecological restoration partnership development toolkit. This will enable differing values related to landscape scale restoration to be made visible and compared in a manner that has the potential to allow differences to be understood, deliberated and addressed. A key aspect of the role is to pilot the toolkit in case study landscapes in the UK.

Your skills and attributes for success:

  • PhD awarded in relevant environmental or social science discipline, or equivalent experience
  • Research specialism in statement ranking including Q methodology and/or likert item surveys and/or deliberative workshops and/or environmental conflicts
  • Interest in applying social science to the amelioration of contention related to values around landscape change
  • Highly developed communication skills in English, to engage effectively with wide ranging audiences
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team, and work extensively with land use professionals
