The Leonardo Centre at Imperial College Business School is seeking a Research Fellow to join its collaborative platform for knowledge specialists, working with executives, entrepreneurs, investors, value chain partners, unions, government institutions, local communities and NGOs.

The collaborative platform includes a dataset of published corporate sustainability initiatives to design and test the impact of change in the business enterprise.

  • Publication in leading academic journals, independently or in collaboration with faculty

Essential requirements include:

  • PhD in scientific domains relevant to the study of corporate sustainability
  • Experience in engaging business organisations and/or stakeholders in public and private domains to pursue knowledge co-development and field experimentation
  • Evidence of successful project completion and publication in top scholar journals
  • Experience of participation in multi-disciplinary, large scale, collaborative studies involving non-academic partners (businesses, policy institutions, NGOs, etc.)
  • Diverse methodological skills, spanning qualitative and quantitative designs and analytical approaches, including simulations with systems dynamics and/or agent-based modelling.
  • Cognitive flexibility to apply personal skills to diverse empirical phenomena
  • Value alignment with the overall mission of the Leonardo Centre
