    Level: Post-doc
    Location: Brisbane, Australia
    Deadline: 20 December, 2023

    About the role 
    This is an exciting opportunity for two Postdoctoral Research Fellows to join a multi-disciplinary team of scholars focused on understanding and overcoming community roadblocks to achieving net-zero. In the last 15 years, humans emitted a quarter of the greenhouse gases ever emitted by our species. Reversing this trajectory will require extraordinary levels of community support in the face of painful transformations of our society. This project will understand the psychological factors underpinning climate (in)action, test strategies capable of catalysing action, and deliver a suite of impact tools for government, industry, and green innovators. The significant benefits that will emerge will assist in future-proofing the economy, increasing government flexibility to drive change, and reducing social conflict. The project will inform Australia's transition from a fossil fuel dependent economy to a leader in rapid decarbonisation.
