Researchers at the University of Rhode Island are currently recruiting candidates for a funded PhD position working on two mixed-methods projects related to offshore wind development. Project 1 investigates the messaging, networks and community engagement efforts surrounding two offshore wind developments in New England. Project 2 investigates questions of justice and the impacts of offshore wind developments on indigenous and non-indigenous communities in the Northeast U.S.

The successful candidate will be co-advised by Dr. David Bidwell and Dr. Emily Diamond at the University of Rhode Island, will work with other collaborators from other institutions, and will interact with diverse communities. Three years of funding is guaranteed, with the student working 20 hours/week on the two projects.

Interested candidates should apply to the Marine Affairs PhD program at URI, preferably by January 15th 2021.

Candidates are also encouraged to reach out to Drs. Bidwell (dbidwell@uri.edu) and Diamond (diamond@uri.edu) to discuss their interest in the position.
