Climate Change, Conflict and Peacebuilding

Social Sciences & Social Care - UK Jobs

The Winchester Centre of Religions for Reconciliation and Peace (CRRP) is a vibrant and rapidly developing research centre with an international reputation for research excellence and impact. Our international reputation has been developed by being at the forefront of research and innovation in our specialist areas.

This post builds on that success by expanding our research focus in a new, and extremely important area. With climate change and associated resource disputes one of fastest growing drivers of violent and structural conflict and inequalities throughout the world, understanding better how we create effective and sustainable opportunities for peacebuilding in increasingly dynamic and contested environments is a crucial challenge.

As a research centre with a specific focus on religions’ role in peacebuilding and reconciliation, we particularly welcome candidates who have existing experience of, or are keen to engage with, our emphasis on roles faith-based actors and civil society might play in peacebuilding.

The successful applicant will work as an integral part of a small and experienced team of academics/practitioners in the CRRP and will report directly to the centre Director. The post-holder will be responsible for leading the development of research in the emerging area of climate change and peacebuilding, and will be expected to design, develop and deliver high quality research projects and associated outputs, either independently or as part of a team. There is also a significant expectation to identify and complete research funding applications, either independently or as part of a team. The post holder will be expected to offer a small but important contribution to our existing PG programmes, and PhD supervision capabilities, and will also act as an important link between CRRP and the University’s new Institute of Climate and Social Justice.
