Read more about this role

The Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation (CCSI) at Cambridge Judge Business School (CJBS) brings students and the social, corporate and public sectors together to disseminate research findings and turn ideas into action. The Centre aims to be a hub for global thought leadership and practice in making social change.

The Master of Studies (MSt) in Social Innovation is a part-time graduate programme delivered over two years. It includes online delivery and four residentials of a week each in Cambridge. The programme provides an overview and understanding of social innovation and approaches to address social, cultural, economic, and environmental challenges and opportunities. It is aimed at middle and senior level leaders in NGOs, public bodies and the private sector. Each cohort (recruited annually) is expected to have around 35 students and be international in scope.

The role holder is the first point of contact for candidates to the programme from the point that they express an interest in the course until they submit an application. They are expected to work closely with the MSt Business Development and Programme Manager and to co-ordinate two areas which are essential for the success of the programme: student recruitment (marketing the programme to potential candidates and organising events) and online programme delivery support (maintaining the virtual learning environment (VLE) and facilitating online teaching).

The ideal candidate will be educated to degree level or equivalent and be an exceptional administrator with great attention to detail and the ability to work flexibly and on own initiative. Experience of actioning marketing plans, ideally for student recruitment purposes in higher education and planning and delivering online and face-to-face events is essential. Excellent communication and relationship management skills, experience of project management and using virtual learning environment, as well as supporting students at a distance, are desirable. Applicants will have proofreading and copy-editing skills, the ability to prioritise own workload to meet multiple deadlines and will be a proactive team player.

The funds for this post are available for one year in the first instance.

Applications are welcome from internal candidates who would like to apply for the role on the basis of a secondment from their current role in the University.

Interviews are planned for the week commencing 24 August 2020.

Research Assistant/Associate in Climate Change for the Energy Policy Research Group (fixed term)

Salary £30,942 - £40,322
Closing date 6 September 2020

Read more about this role

We are looking to appoint a Research Associate at CJBS within the economics and policy subject group. The Research Associate will support a new pan-European, multi-institution consortium (NEGEM) focused on assessing carbon dioxide gas removal (CDR) options such as bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS), direct air capture of CO2 with CO2 storage (DACCS), enhanced weathering, afforestation, soil carbon sequestration and other negative emissions technologies and practices (NETPs). According to most economic models, the ambitious targets laid out in the Paris Agreement (PA) agreed in December 2015 will likely rely heavily on the extensive deployment of these CDR options. By bringing together a team of highly experienced partners across a broad range of scientific disciplines, the NEGEM project aims to provide a comprehensive framework for analysing sustainable, cost-effective, and resilient pathways toward reaching the Paris Agreement.

Cambridge is responsible for overall coordination of research on public and stakeholder perceptions of CDR options. The goals of the Cambridge-led element of the project are: to conduct original analysis of the political economy of CDR technologies in comparative context, to examine social license to operate of different CDR technologies, to explore the framing of different CDR technologies, to understand the political limitations on scaling up of different configurations, and to design realistic CDR deployment scenarios working closely with other partners in the project. To support these activities, we will carry out stakeholder workshops and a Europe-wide stakeholder survey, conduct expert elicitations and commission large-scale representative surveys in several European countries.

The successful candidate will be based within the Energy Policy Research Group (EPRG) at CJBS. This project will complement other EPRG research into deep decarbonisation in energy-intensive industries, electricity, heat, and transport.

A PhD in public policy, political science, economics, geography, social psychology, or other relevant discipline is essential. Strong qualitative research skills, such as experience in designing and carrying out interviews or stakeholder surveys is essential. Additional knowledge of one or more carbon dioxide removal technologies would be an advantage. Good writing skills and attention to detail are prerequisite for this role.

Our preference is to appoint someone with a PhD in hand, but successful candidates at Research Associate level who have not been awarded their PhD by the appointment date will be under-appointed as a Research Assistant (Grade 5) employed on a salary of £26,715 per annum. Upon award of the PhD the individual will be promoted to Research Associate (Grade 7 - £30,942).

This is a fixed term appointment for two years in the first instance.
