Applications are particularly encouraged from candidates whose work addresses the relationship between environmental governance and social and economic inequality and poverty.  The person appointed will be expected to pursue research in their areas of specialization and play a role in developing GDI’s environment and climate change research, linking it to work undertaken by complementary disciplines at Manchester on a range of topics including sustainability, climate change, social justice and the reduction of poverty and inequality.  Relations with the newly created Manchester Environment Institute, The Tyndall Centre and the Global Challenges Research Fund's Dams 2.0 Research Programme will be encouraged.
