Dr Candice Howarth from the University of Surrey, is advertising for a researcher to work on ‘Nexus Shocks’, conducting research alongside the project PI, engaging with members of the Nexus Shocks Network and producing outputs for academic and non-academic audiences.
Dr Candice Howarth will lead the research which will explore the extent to which nexus thinking could increase resilience to shocks to the nexus, and the role of social sciences and nexus thinking in informing these processes, under the Nexus Shocks Fellowship. The project will entail engaging with the members of the Nexus Shocks network, and others as appropriate, to conduct a review of experience, evidence and lessons learnt from historical, nexus and non-nexus shocks. This will also enable an assessment of different traits that might define a nexus shock, its surrounding context and explore existing approaches for assessing shocks and expectations for responses and resilience.
This is a fixed term position available on a full time basis for 7 months. Part time applications will also be considered.
Closing Date: Wednesday 10 August 2016
