SPRU comprises over 70 faculty and 40 doctoral students and is ranked third in the world and the highest in the UK in a global list of think tanks in science and technology. SPRU includes the Sussex Energy Group (SEG), a leading social science research group in the area of energy and climate policy that focuses in particular on the transition to sustainable, low carbon energy systems. SEG's research falls under six themes: (1) Energy innovation and transitions, (2) Economics and finance, (3) Energy justice, (4) Energy demand and behaviour, (5) Smart infrastructure, and (6) Energy supply technologies. SPRU wishes to appoint a Research Fellow in Energy Justice and Transitions to support both SEG as well as the Centre on Innovation and Energy Demand. The fellow will examine the political economy and justice implications of low-carbon energy transitions, and also co-lead the research design, analysis, and writing of four case studies of justice and decarbonisation: Nuclear power in France, solar PV in Germany, electric vehicles in Norway, and smart meters in the UK. Furthermore, the fellow will investigate how smart and digital energy systems influence energy-related user practices (e.g. working remotely, changing leisure patterns) and how those changes may affect energy consumption. This could examine issues such as diffusion of smart meters, user acceptance of smart homes and potential for teleworking. They will lastly assist with other outputs examining conceptual and empirical applications of energy transitions and/or energy justice. The successful applicant must have a demonstrable record of designing, conducting, and publishing interdisciplinary social science research on energy and climate policy, including topics such as energy transitions, smart energy systems, energy justice, and/or energy and innovation. Desirable criteria include formal research methods training or experience, especially with qualitative case studies, expert interviews, survey design and analysis, systematic reviews, and/or meta-analysis. Candidates with multi-methods training and experience writing comparative analysis are especially encouraged to apply.
