Hughes HallHughes Hall, a College within the University of Cambridge, intends to establish a major new research initiative in Climate Law and Governance in conjunction with its Centre for Climate Change Engagement (HHCCCE). This will include two stipendiary post-doctoral positions to pursue research on law and climate change: the first position will focus on UK company and private law and will start in 2020; the second position will focus on public and administrative law and will start in 2021. Both positions can extend up to four years, subject to successful probation of twelve months. It is anticipated that there will also be funding for two PHD studentships which will be tenable in either the Faculty of Law or the Department of Land Economy.

This role for the post-doctoral position focuses on company law and climate change, with a start date in 2020.

The primary obligation of the postholder is to engage full-time in research and its dissemination and to engage in the academic life of Hughes Hall and its Centre for Climate Change Engagement. The postholder will also be required to devote one day per week to the work of the Centre. The exact nature of this work will be subject to agreement between the postholder, the Centre and the Law team at the College. Ability to supervise Hughes Hall Tripos students would be an asset.

Further details about the posts, selection criteria and application process can be found on the Hughes Hall website.
