JOB – Reader/Chair in Environmental Justice & International Development

University of East Anglia Logo

  • Reader: £45,336 to £52,556 per annum
  • Chair: A competitive salary package is available for an outstanding candidate
  • Closing date: 12 noon on June 1st, 2011.

University of East Anglia (UEA) is recruiting a senior post as part of its strategic and expansion plans to strengthen its research portfolio and build on its teaching, enterprise and engagement activities.  Although the School of International Development (DEV) invites applications from people of any specialization in development studies, we in the Global Environmental Justice Group hope to attract someone whose expertise can contribute to our rapidly expanding  research (e.g., a special issue in preparation for Development and Change). We are an interdisciplinary initiative that examines the linkages between social justice and environmental change with a particular interest in the global dimensions of (in)justice. We study existing injustices in different areas of contemporary environmental management, through looking at issues of access, property, values, knowledge, governance and social norms. We are also actively involved in envisioning new forms of environmental governance and social mobilization that enhance disadvantaged people’s access to natural resources, participation in decision-making and social recognition. Our interest in identifying global connections and dynamics combines with explicit attention to the specificity of local socio-environmental struggles.

UEA is one of the leading centres of development research, teaching and professional activity in the UK and internationally. The diversity of the School’s research may be seen on our website, represented in three broad categories: environment and development, economic development, and the social and political analysis of development.

You must have a PhD or equivalent level of qualification, in a relevant
discipline or subject area and be able to satisfy all the essential criteria detailed in the person specification for the relevant post. The post is available on a full-time basis from 1 September 2011 or as soon as possible thereafter.
