We are seeking to appoint a Research Associate, who will work with Dr Liz Sharp, to help develop the University’s research capacity in urban water governance. In this context, ‘urban water governance’ is understood as an area of social scientific research investigating the expectations, social norms, organisations and practices through which humans maintain, develop and change the natural and engineered urban water systems. Building on the strong interdisciplinary coalitions in the Sheffield Water Centre and the Pennine Water Group you will enable, support, design and develop cross-disciplinary funding proposals incorporating the study of urban water governance. The post will require interaction with colleagues across faculties including (but not confined to) Social Sciences, Engineering and Science. Specifically, you will help develop projects for funding bids; drive the development of urban water governance bids; support the incorporation of urban water governance in other funding proposals; and develop group publications relating to urban water governance.

The post is a strategic investment by the Pennine Water Group, of which Dr Liz Sharp is a member of the Management Team. The post is for 6 months , commencing in November 2015. As such, it provides an opportunity for someone working on the urban environmental practice/academia divide to develop their experience of bid-writing. Applicants should be experienced in research or practice on urban environmental governance, they should have worked across disciplines and be familiar with bridging technical/scientific and social scientific approaches, demonstrate excellent communications skills, and the ability to design research projects.

Please see www.sheffield.ac.uk/penninewatergroup for more information about the Pennine Water Group.
