Research Assistant

Job Description

The researcher will contribute to a small grant on the climate adaptation progress in local government. To that end, the researcher will be responsible for:



 




  1. A rapid evidence review of peer-reviewed publications and grey literature concerning adaptation progress;

  2. Help design and run a practitioner workshop on climate adaptation progress and challenges.



 



Context: Despite having the capacity and resources to adapt to climate change, a persistent and growing implementation gap exists between the risks faced by the UK and the government’s response to those risks. A major barrier is the lack of clarity over what progress and/or successful constitutes for adaptation action. This post will identify what are the key themes and evidence gaps in the international literature on adaptation progress.




Qualifications

All degree levels will be considered.



 



Skills

Essential: Qualitative skills - experience of designing, analysing, and writing up survey research.



 



Experience in geographical and/or applied social science research.
