Energy demand is rising rapidly in the Global South, yet most research on household energy practices focuses on Europe and the US. The purpose of this 12 month research project (part-time applications welcome) is to account for differences and similarities in the circulation of elements and practices relating to comfort, lighting and refrigeration in Southeast Asia. We are looking for an independent post-doctoral social scientist (familiar with the literature on social practices) to carry out conceptual and empirical research, including fieldwork in Thailand and Vietnam. The post-doc will be based at the DEMAND Centre in Lancaster and will work closely with the Environmental Policy group at Wageningen University.

See www.demand.ac.uk for further details of the DEMAND centre. Contact Elizabeth Shove, e.shove@lancaster.ac.uk or Mattijs Smiths, mattijs.smits@wur.nl for more information about the project.

Please submit a full CV, letter of application and sample of writing – e.g. recent paper, article or chapter, with your application.

This is a full-time, fixed-term post until 31/08/2016.
