Would you like to be part of an exciting new research project mitigating the risks of floods and droughts, improving water quality and bringing significant benefits to the economy, environment and wider society? Do you have a PhD in Environmental/Ecological Economics or Quantitative Environmental Social Science?

The Yorkshire Integrated Catchment Solutions Programme (iCASP) is a £6 million investment over five years, with funding from the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), aimed at generating solutions to significant environmental issues and bringing benefits across rural and urban areas of Yorkshire. The programme requires a team of innovative communicators, experts and administrators to support the translation of science and the engagement of agencies across all sectors. 

Reporting to the Programme Manager, this exciting new role will lead the evaluation function of the iCASP programme, ensuring that all programme partners and funders are provided with regular, robust analysis of performance measures. You will have the opportunity to develop innovative methodologies that accurately capture the value of a varied portfolio of NERC science to the Yorkshire region, working closely with leading academic experts in the field of environmental economics and impact evaluation.

With knowledge of catchment science and its applications, you will have excellent written and verbal communication skills, as well the ability to understand and present complex economic and scientific data across the range of activities to be supported by the programme.
