We are looking for an Ecological Economist to support our Sustainable Ecosystems team within SRUC’s Department for Rural Economy, Environment & Society. The Sustainable Ecosystems team conducts applied research on the socio-economic impacts of agricultural systems and environmental change. In collaboration with the University of Edinburgh, we coordinate and deliver the taught MSc Programme in Ecological Economics, which is the longest running programme of its kind worldwide. The successful candidate will support teaching activities primarily at post-graduate level within the department and especially the Ecological Economics programme.
With respect to research, the successful candidate will, in the first instance, contribute to the delivery of research on global challenges such as transition to sustainable and resilient food systems, sustainably managing complex socio-ecological systems in terrestrial and marine environments, and climate change mitigation and adaptation.
