Salary: £40,792 - £51,630
Contract: Fixed-term, 3 years
The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) is seeking to appoint a Fellow in luxury and social inclusion under The Prince of Wales Global Sustainability Fellowship Programme. Funding for the Fellowship has been secured through a philanthropic donation from Chanel Limited, but stewardship of the Programme lies with CISL. The successful candidate will be part of our exciting new Fellowship Programme, aiming to unlock the potential of the University to partner with business, government and finance institutions on real-world challenges and opportunities that must be addressed in order to build a sustainable economy. The ambition is to foster new cross-disciplinary thinking on sustainability leading to practical insights, tools and recommendations for decision-makers to carry into their organisations alongside important advances in fundamental knowledge.
The Fellow will be appointed for a period of three years to conduct high-impact research relevant to social inclusion, focussing on the potential role of the luxury sector in the transition towards more inclusive societies. The Fellow will investigate how the business models of luxury firms are affected by these debates, and the potential for companies selling luxury goods to contribute to solving recognised social challenges. Applications are welcome from highly regarded researchers from any relevant discipline with a strong academic record and interest in conducting research in business, policy or civil-society contexts.
This post is full-time or part-time (minimum 80% FTE) to accommodate existing commitments, and CISL is open to exploring secondments or similar arrangements. From 2020 the Programme will be based at CISL’s new premises in the centre of Cambridge, which will serve as a vibrant, collaborative atmosphere for transdisciplinary research, education, industry and policy engagement.
Please provide a full CV, cover letter, and research proposal containing a 1 – 2,000-description with a 100-word summary intended for a general audience. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity on the basis of a secondment, please provide evidence of home institutional support.
