Hughes Hall CollegeHughes Hall intends to establish a major new research initiative in Climate Law and Governance in conjunction with its Centre for Climate Engagement.

The Centre for Climate Engagement was established in 2019 to engage with the corporate and financial sectors at the highest level (e.g., chairs of boards, non-executive directors and senior executives), bringing them together with government, academics and others within civil society. The Centre also aims to encourage scholarship on the legal, regulatory, financial and other levers that will enable the scaling up of action across the corporate sector. It has recently received new funding which will allow it, among other activities, to establish an academic work programme in law, regulation and governance. The Centre works closely with Chapter Zero, a wholly owned subsidiary of the College, which aims to help non-executive directors engage with the potential business risks and opportunities associated with climate change and take this discussion into their boardrooms. It also works closely with Cambridge Zero, the University’s climate change initiative, and other relevant centres such as the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership and the Centre for Science and Policy. The post holder will have expertise and interests in administrative law.

Further information about this role and application details are available on the Hughes Hall website.
