    An opportunity for a full-time senior postdoctoral researcher for 2 years to work with Professor Paula Jarzabkowski at the University of Queensland Business School on a social theory approach to the secondary risks arising from climate-induced disasters and how they are reconfiguring insurability.

    This exciting opportunity is co-sponsored by Australian Reinsurance Pool Corporation and will involve working closely with industry partners and developing both academic papers and also impact from this research. Applications close on 8th February. For details about the post and the essential and desirable skills:
