To promote a flexible workforce, the University will consider applications from individuals seeking full time, part time, job share, or term time only working arrangements.

We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) to join an energetic and enthusiastic team of investigators working on a project entitled 'Climate change adaptation through ecologically sensitive coastal infrastructure (Ecostructure)'. Ecostructure is an interdisciplinary project, part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland Wales Cooperation Programme 2014-2020 and aims to raise awareness of and provide guidance to developers and regulators on the potential for blue-green engineering solutions for coastal infrastructure. As well as undertaking desk and field trials of simple, but innovative material and structures for incorporation within coastal infrastructure, the successful applicant will be expected to liaise with and communicate findings from the project to key stakeholders and policy-makers. Given the applied nature of this post, the Institute therefore seeks to appoint an enthusiastic, highly motivated individual whose research and field skills are complemented by a keen interest in and experience of knowledge exchange.
