Outstanding senior appointment opportunity at University College London:
BHP Billiton Chair in Sustainable Global Resources
The new UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources is UCL’s mechanism for bringing together a wide range of perspectives, understandings and procedures in research into the availability and use of natural resources and the environment, transcending the boundaries between academic disciplines.
UCL now invites applications for the BHP Billiton Chair in Sustainable Global Resources from candidates with an outstanding record of research and publication in the sustainability of resource use, with a strong background in either natural or social science, or both.
The suitable candidates will have a background in the use and availability of natural resources and sustainable development. The successful candidate must be highly motivated with a track record in winning research funding, probably including from research councils. They will also have international experience and an international reputation, and are likely to have worked across disciplines within the natural and physical sciences, or across these and the social sciences. They are also likely to have held prestigious research fellowships or other comparable appointments. The successful candidate would be expected to assume a leadership role within the UCL ISR, working closely with the Institute Director and with a range of international research partners and stakeholders in business and policy-making.
