Announcement of Opportunity: Landscape Decisions Fellowships

Announcement of Opportunity: Landscape Decisions Fellowships

UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) invite proposals to this call on the Strategic Priorities Fund programme on 'Landscape Decisions: Towards a new framework for using land assets'. This is a four-year multidisciplinary programme jointly delivered by the Natural Environment Research Council, the Arts & Humanities Research Council, the Biotechnology & Biological Sciences Research Council, the Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council and the Economic & Social Research Council on behalf of UKRI.

Fellowships are invited in the area of landscape decision-making and may address challenges including (but not limited to):

  • How to ensure landscape decisions are climate-resilient;
  • How landscape decisions can support the UK’s 2050 net zero emissions target;
  • The role of mathematics, big data and artificial intelligence within landscape decision making;
  • How decisions on multifunctional landscapes can be taken under uncertainty to improve environmental land management.

Three types of fellowship are available: Research Synthesis (reviewing research outcomes from within and beyond the Landscape Decisions programme with consideration of their policy-relevant implications), Research Translation (translating research outcomes into policy-relevant tools and applications) and Community Engagement Research (using arts, humanities, social and political science and digital methods to engage land users and communities).

There is £1 million available for this call and fellowships can be held full- or part-time.

Closing date: 16:00 26 March 2020

For full details of the call and how to apply, see the Announcement of Opportunity.
