The University of Sussex is recruiting a Director for its Sussex Sustainability Research Programme. Initiated this year, SSRP spans four of the University’s Schools and the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), aiming to develop a world-leading programme in sustainability research.
The members of SSRP include the School of Life Sciences, SPRU, the School of Business, Management and Economics, the School of Global Studies, the School of Law, Politics and Sociology, and the STEPS Centre.
The programme will support and build upon existing strengths at Sussex to address complex socio-economic, technical and environmental challenges and develop problem-focused research across disciplines in the natural and social sciences. It will enhance both the understanding of complex sustainability challenges and the approaches through which more sustainable development pathways can be negotiated.
