Closing date on Je-S: 16:00 on 27 April 2017

Interview date: 15 June 2017 in London

NERC and the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC) wish to appoint a Knowledge Exchange (KE) Fellow for the Increasing Resilience to Natural Hazards (IRNH) in Earthquake-prone & Volcanic Regions research programme. The programme aims to assist in increasing social and economic resilience in earthquake-prone and volcanic regions by reducing risks from multiple natural hazards. The fellowship will integrate natural and social science research across the programme to enhance the potential for impact on those affected by natural hazards.

In 2012, two consortia were funded - Strengthening Resilience in Volcanic Areas (STREVA) and Earthquakes without Frontiers; a Partnership for Increasing Resilience to Seismic Hazard in the Continents (EwF).

The duration of the fellowship is for a minimum period of one year (ideally commencing summer 2017). Applications are welcomed on a full or part time basis (between 60-100% full time equivalent). Salary costs will be paid at 80% full economic cost with a budget of £60,000.
