To plan, develop and undertake modelling research in landowners’ decisions over the portfolio of investments in natural assets, write up research findings and contribute to the production of research outputs.
To develop understanding of the effectiveness of policies interventions in incentivising cooperation between landowners across UK treescapes using game theory.
To collaborate with other researchers from the natural, social sciences and the humanities, to increase the effectiveness of interdisciplinary research in the UK Connected Treescapes project and develop proposals for future research.
Skills, Experience & Qualification needed
PhD in economics, finance, mathematics or related appropriate subject area.

Are you interested in working for a top-ranked Management School which has achieved accreditation from the three largest and most influential business school associations: AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS?
With world-class facilities, ground-breaking research and cutting-edge thinking, we are seeking applications from ambitious, highly motivated and talented individuals who will be keen to play an active role in maintaining and enhancing the Management School’s international reputation for research, teaching excellence and innovation.
 The Management School offers an 18-month post-doctoral position within the H2020 projects “A Just Transition to a Circular Economy” (JUST2CE) and “Realising the Transition towards a Circular Economy” (ReTraCE). Both projects aim at understanding, in a critical and thoughtful way, under which conditions a responsible, inclusive and socially just transition to a circular economy is possible and desirable, what technical, geopolitical and social factors can enable or hamper such transformation and how these aspects can contribute to the development of transitional policy measures. The project will identify enablers and barriers to CE in a number of key strategic sectors – selected among those indicated by the EU Action Plan for Circular Economy – such as food production and waste, water management, critical raw materials and production in complex global supply chains.
These networks brings together an exceptionally strong team of world-leading experts from a wide set of beneficiaries and partners in order to achieve breakthroughs in understanding how the transition towards a Circular Economy (CE) can be realised in a successful way in the European context, both within existing organisations and industries as well as through innovative and sustainable business models. The approach proposed by these projects is inherently multi-disciplinary, drawing upon research that will advance significantly the state-of-the-art in terms of the current understanding of the applicability of the CE paradigm from Economic, Environmental and Social points of view, providing policy insights and implications for practice.
Sheffield University Management School is a leading business school with a world-class research reputation and ambition. As such, the Management School has cutting-edge research at the heart of its activities and as the base of its strategic focus.
