Jobs and Opportunities
Anglian Water would like to fund a PINES intern
The project is to increase their understanding of the nature scale and frequency of the risks that climate change poses to their ability to serve their customers over the next 20, 40 and 60 years.
The programme is open to any NERC-facing PhD student or postdoc at one of the EnvEast institutions. Applicants do not need to be directly funded by NERC, but their research must be related to the natural environment in some way (i.e., NERC-facing.) The programme is also open to people who have recently (or will soon) finish a PhD or postdoc contract.
Due to funding constraints, internships under this scheme must commence before 31st March 2017.

Lecturer in Energy & Climate Change, Manchester
12th April, 2017
Applications are invited for the post of Lecturer in Energy & Climate Change to undertake research with Tyndall Manchester and teach courses linked to climate change and sustainability within the School of Mechanical Aerospace and Civil Engineering (MACE)
The post requires a physical scientist with excellent communication skills who is comfortable conducting interdisciplinary and policy-relevant climate change mitigation research. The focus of the research must be on one of the following areas: climate science and mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions; mitigation of aviation and/or shipping CO2 emissions; energy system decarbonisation scenarios. It is expected that you will have a strong publishing track record, lecturing and supervisory experience, demonstrable experience in attracting research funding, as well as experience in conducting knowledge exchange activity. You will support the research and teaching activity previously conducted by the recently appointed Head of School of MACE and previus Tyndall Manchester Director.
The Tyndall Centre conducts interdisciplinary research in the field of energy, decarbonisation and climate change mitigation. www.tyndall.manchester.ac.uk.

Lectureships in Human Geography at UEA
10th April, 2017
The UEA is advertising two lectureships in Human Geography in the School of Environmental Sciences.
The School of Environmental Sciences is one of the largest and longest established academic departments in Europe to focus on the study of the global environment. The outstanding impact of our research was recognised in the 2014 UK Research Excellence Framework, in which the School was ranked 1st in the UK for research impact. We are looking to appoint two excellent geographers who can broaden the human geography expertise in the School and excel in an interdisciplinary working environment. The successful candidates will have emerging international research records in human geography of the environment and be capable of contributing to the successful 3S (Science, Society and Sustainability), Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research or CSERGE (Centre for Social and Economic Research on the Global Environment) research groupings. The further particulars identify areas of research that are particularly attractive to the School.
The post holders will play an important role in developing and delivering content on the BA and BSc Geography programmes in the School.
The two posts are available from 1 August 2017, on a full-time indefinite basis.
More details are available on the UEA Website.
