WG III is concerned with the mitigation of climate change and the TSU will be based at the South Kensington Campus.


Duties and responsibilities
The Research Fellow will play an essential role in ensuring WG III scientific reports and documents meet the needs of the global policy community by helping Lead Authors critically evaluate the current evidence around climate change mitigation.

The postholder is expected to have experience in a field relevant to climate change mitigation, reflected in a growing national reputation, as well as demonstrated success in delivering research results.

Further Information
This post is funded by The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and is offered as a full-time, fixed-term position until 31 March 2020, with the expectation of an extension subject to confirmation of funding.
