Welsh Government are inviting proposals for a Social Transformation and Behaviour Change Fellowship role, working within the Environment and Rural Affairs (ERA) Department. This position aims to support the development and understanding of social science and behaviour science in systems thinking across the department.
This position will work in a multidisciplinary evidence team supporting a wider programme to contribute to delivering robust, evidence-based decisions within Welsh environment and agriculture policy. The team works through research collaboration with policy, business and land management partners to deliver desired policy outcomes.
Applications are invited for proposals from Post-doctorate Researchers to Senior Researchers and the role is open to candidates to create their own proposal for how a placement may function. The Welsh Government is able to support this as a part time or full time role.
The outcomes of activities undertaken during the Fellowship are expected to lead to new and improved understanding from the synthesis of research from social and behaviour science and the uptake of research outcomes in policy- making and applications, and new and innovative methods for participatory and inclusive decision processes.
All applicants must be employed by an eligible host organisation for the duration of the Fellowship to receive funding. Eligible host organisations include UK Higher Education Institutes, eligible Independent Research Organisations or Public Sector Research Establishments (PSREs).
