Job: Postdoctoral Researcher for the OceanNETs Project

Deadline: 22. February 2021

"The InSIS-based OceanNETs postdoctoral research fellow will carry out social scientific research into public understanding of ocean-based CDR methods, local impacts of the proposed technologies, and criteria for a responsible governance of any eventual deployment, leading to high impact peer reviewed publications.  They will design, conduct and analyse stakeholder engagement processes focused on ocean-based carbon dioxide removal and develop a set of research-based principles for Responsible Research and Innovation for the field of marine-based carbon dioxide removal.  It will be the responsibility of the post holder to integrate the OceanNETs research portfolio within the new Oxford Net Zero initiative."
