Job offer in england Impact Translation Fellow in Environmental Economics at University of Leeds

Would you like to be part of an exciting research impact programme that aims to generate £50 million+ benefits to Yorkshire’s economy? Do you want to lead and manage projects that seek to achieve this aim by translating research to address catchment management issues, including flood and drought risk, improved water quality and building climate resilience in rural and urban areas? Are you educated to PhD level, or have equivalent experience, in environmental economics?

Central to iCASP activity are several Impact Translation Fellows, who will lead on a diverse range of projects that are the engine of iCASP activity. Projects will be co-developed between academics and a diverse range of partner organisations. Working at the interface between academia and stakeholder organisations you will seek to solve problems facing industry and government in the broad area of catchment dynamics, including flooding, drought mitigation, water quality, agricultural resilience and carbon sequestration. As one of the Impact Translation Fellows with a background in environmental economics, possibly with experience in appraising the sustainability of development, you would be focusing on projects that involve valuing, and developing tools to support the valuation of, the benefits of green and blue infrastructure and other catchment management solutions. This will require working closely with catchment scientists and with non-academic organisations.
