To be considered for the role, you will have a PhD in science and technology studies, or similar area (or, exceptionally, equivalent professional experience), with a particular focus on research ethics. You will have an academic or professional background that has allowed exposure to environmental law/policy and international cooperation, for instance in the context of the United Nations. You will have a track record spanning across publications, research funding, knowledge exchange and method development in this area.
The Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) Fellow will research fairness and power imbalances across scales, research areas and academic disciplines within the Hub, including in relation to impact and monitoring and evaluation (M&E). You will undertake research on the risks related to corruption, conflict of interest with local, national and international partners, and inequity or conflicts within or among beneficiaries, against the background of various international legal obligations and processes on scientific cooperation, the sharing of scientific information, capacity building and technology transfer.
The RRI Fellow will carry out research across all research programmes under the Hub, as well as form an integral part of the Hub’s Monitoring and Evaluation Team, to assess strategy and institutional responses (structure and evolution) of the Hub, explore replicability and scalability, as well as volatility (impact of uncontrollable factors) in the Hub, regions and countries.
You will be able to hit the ground running and integrate quickly into a diverse, highly motivated team.
Formal interviews for this post will likely be held on Wednesday, 13 February 2019.
Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Elisa Morgera, Professor of Global Environmental Law (firstname.lastname@example.org).
