Part-time Research Fellow in Mitigation deterrence effects of greenhouse gas removal technologies (AMDEG)

Lancaster Environment Centre
Salary:   £40,523 to £46,924 pro rata
Closing Date:   Thursday 20 July 2017
Interview Date:   Monday 24 July 2017
Reference:  A1905

The project aims to analyse whether and how promoting and developing greenhouse gas removal technologies may impact on mitigation efforts, through cultural, economic and political processes. A key component of the project involves running deliberative focus groups with stakeholders to test scenarios where GGR deter mitigation, to foster reflection and generate insights into potential deterrence mechanisms.

We are therefore seeking a highly motivated researcher to work with Dr Markusson on this project, on the following key tasks:

  • Taking on key responsibilities in organizing and running the research project. This will include further developing methodology and methods, with data collection to include reviewing of literature, interviews and focus groups.
  • Analysis of qualitative data resulting from these methods.
  • Presentation of results at conferences and project meetings, and writing papers.
  • Manage the close liaison with our collaborators in other projects in the research programme and with a diversity of key external stakeholders
  • Developing further research bids that build on the foundation provided by the project

You will join an interdisciplinary research team in the Lancaster Environment Centre (LEC) and the Sociology Department both at Lancaster University, and work closely with collaborators in other projects funded alongside AMDEG, and GGR stakeholders. The position is available to researchers with a substantial track record of research on mitigation deterrence and greenhouse gas removal technologies, experience of working with Science and Technology Studies literature, and of analysing data from ethnographic and participative data collection methods. We also require extensive experience and confidence in engaging with key stakeholders and ideally a candidate with already existing networks that will be of benefit to the project.

The position is effective from 1 August 2017 and is available for 27 months, at 0.75 FTE Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Nils Markusson (email:
