The aims of this partnership are aligned with the Hoffmann Fellowship Programme at the World Economic Forum and match funding for this post will be available.

Hughes Hall intends to establish a major new research initiative in Climate Law and Governance in conjunction with its Centre for Climate Engagement. This includes two stipendiary senior research or post-doctoral positions to pursue research on law and climate change. The first position will have a focus on UK company law and other relevant private law disciplines. This second position will focus on public and administrative law. Both positions will be expected to focus on the application of the specialist legal discipline to climate change. Both positions can extend up to three years, subject to successful probation of twelve months. The applicants will have expertise in their respective fields of law and an enthusiasm for their application to climate law, but need not have detailed knowledge of climate law itself.
