The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs invites applications for its social science of illegal environmental behaviour fellowship.
The focus of the project is regulation and law in practice, or how regulation and the law is implemented and practised and the social context of this. The outputs of this project would contribute to an evidence based approach to tackling illegal behaviour and help shape better and improve regulatory and enforcement approaches and interventions. Applications are invited from researchers with a background in a social scientific research discipline for example criminology, socio-legal studies, sociology, anthropology and social psychology. Applicants should also have experience of applying social science methods to analyse law and its social context, including implementation or regulation and enforcement. The fellowship will run for nine months and will start in September 2012. Fellows will receive a salary and non-estate on-costs, as well as negotiated levels of travel and subsistence.
