You will work closely with colleagues in the Energy and Environment Institute, an internationally-leading transdisciplinary institute delivering research that makes a difference. The EEI is focussed on research exploring the impacts of climate change on environments, societies and cultures, and the pathways for a transition to carbon net zero and global sustainability.
