The aims of the Fellowship are to advance conceptual approaches for understanding urban socio-technical systems and their response to climate change, to develop the evidence base on the climate change ‘experiments’ taking place in global cities, and consider the socio-environmental justice implications of these developments.

We anticipate that this twelve month contract will start on 1st April 2011.
