The postdoctoral researcher will work on the project “Equity and justice in water governance in cities under climate change: a global analysis”. The project will investigate how and why inequitable or unjust water governance occurs, and how equitable water governance can be achieved. Social and political theories will be applied to develop a framework and criteria to analyse inequity patterns in cities worldwide. Moreover, the research will investigate underlying mechanisms which explain occurrence of inequity in water governance. The study conducted follows a mixed methods, qualitative and quantitative research approach, including critical literature analysis, comparative case studies, and a follow up of a global survey that has already been done. In collaboration with urban policy-makers, recommendations for more equitable water governance will be developed.
The successful applicant will be joining the Department of Science in the Faculty of Management, Science & Technology at the Open University. His or her responsibilities include a contribution to research through the collection and analysis of data, data management, and the lead role in dissemination of the results to an academic audience. The successful candidate will also be tasked with teaching a course and will be asked to translate findings of the research project into new course material for the Open University.
