The deadline for applying to the Centre for Energy Ethics Postdoctoral Fellowship has been extended; the new closing Date is 10 May 2023. The CEE postdoctoral fellowship is a 1-year award offered to an outstanding early career researcher working on issues of energy ethics in the arts, humanities, social or natural sciences.

This year’s call is focused thematically on ‘financial pathways to net zero’ and we particularly invite applications from applicants with an interest in the broader issues surrounding how to finance Scotland’s net zero journey. The post is based in the Centre for Energy Ethics, directed by Dr Mette M. High in the Department of Social Anthropology at the University of St Andrews.

 This one-year fellowship is specifically designed to maximize career development opportunities. Alongside consolidating prior research and exploring new research and career pathways, the fellow will have a unique opportunity to develop their own large funding application as part of this role – benefitting from the interdisciplinary expertise at the centre, and research development support available at the University of St Andrews – renowned for its research excellence. All in the beautiful St Andrews, and fully integrated into the vibrant and dynamic CEE.

The position will commence on 1 September 2023, or as soon as possible thereafter. It will provide substantial scope for creativity, originality, collaboration, presentation, event organising, public engagement, grant writing and publication of results. The successful candidate will be based in St Andrews and carry out research that embraces the Centre’s collaborative interdisciplinary ethos.
