Project Description

Research in my group relates to environmental governance, with a strong focus on the emergence and evolution of innovations for sustainable development. This work is important because it can help us understand the demands of, and plan for, more sustainable futures. A key strand of research within the group, related to the CONSENSUS (Consumption, Environment and Sustainability) project, is the development, application and interrogation of novel interventions aimed at supporting transitions to more sustainable household consumption. Specifically, this PhD project will examine the benefits and limitations of applying a practice-oriented living laboratory framework for testing sustainable consumption innovations.

Funding Notes

Currently I am seeking highly qualified students to apply for funding from the Irish Research Council. The IRC fund 4-year PhD fellowships which cover a €16,000p.a. stipend, tuition fees and research costs. The IRC is competitive and uses the calibre of the student as one of their main assessment criteria, therefore excellent grades, research experience and publications will improve chances of success. The next deadline for applications is the 28th January 2014, with a start date for the PhD of 1st October 2014. Applications are submitted by the prospective student together with their supervisor.
