The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC) wish to appoint two IRNH Knowledge Exchange Fellows for the Increasing Resilience to Natural Hazards in Earthquake-prone & Volcanic Regions (IRNH) research programme.
Applications are welcomed on a part-time basis (between 60% and 80% FTE). Ideally the Fellowships will commence in April/May 2013 for a period of three years, with the possibility of a one year extension.

The IRNH Fellows will work together to enable information sharing and communication across and between the consortia to strengthen and support the interdisciplinary nature of the research and to ensure that they are able to share best practice in areas such as data integration, methodology and policy linkage. The Fellows will facilitate the communication and application of the science delivered from the IRNH research programme to a variety of users and stakeholders, including policymakers, government agencies, humanitarian agencies, industry and commerce, both nationally and internationally.

Further details of these opportunities together with  guidance notes for applicants are available at: http://www.nerc.ac.uk/research/programmes/resilience/events/ao4.asp

Closing date: 16:00 on Tuesday 12 February 2013
