Lecturer in Adaptation to Environmental Change, Liverpool
I’m delighted to be able to report that I have accepted a position as Lecturer in the School of Engineering, Centre for Engineering Sustainability, at the University of Liverpool. The position is in the field of Adaptation to Environmental Change and a key part of the role will be to contribute to the establishment of a joint
Engineering-Environmental Sciences Centre for Environmental Change Adaptation and Mitigation (CECAM).
The post, my first permanent academic position, is an exciting and challenging opportunity to make a strong contribution to research and teaching at the interface of engineering and the natural world. This is a two-way street – there are critical questions relating not only to the impacts of our current technology on environmental systems, but also around how a better, more robust understanding of complex environmental systems can inform more efficient, less wasteful and more sustainable technologies for the future.
I take up my post on 20th August 2012, leaving the University of Sheffield after 9 stimulating and rewarding years.
