Here at the University of Portsmouth, we’re determined to deliver research that gets to grips with burning issues. Research that engages with the world – and changes it for the better.
Like you, we see that the global climate, environmental protection, responsible consumption and sustainable communities are among society’s biggest challenges. That’s why we chose Sustainability and the Environment as one of our five new research and innovation themes.
Bringing academic leadership and groundbreaking ideas to this theme, you’ll be an inspiring and impactful leader across faculty boundaries.
Building on our strengths in research and innovation, you’ll explore the interactions between global populations and the natural and built environments.
Crucially, you will galvanise interdisciplinary research – to pioneer fresh approaches, shape groundbreaking ideas and breathe new life into complex topics.
This role offers you the chance to build quite a legacy.
The Sustainability and Environment theme contributes to several of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Your research, and the academic strengths and external collaborations you nurture, will support a global mission: to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all.
At the University of Portsmouth, you’ll tap into a wealth of expertise in key areas:

  • Living planet
  • Solid earth
  • Sustainable cities
  • Blue governance
  • Materials, resources and systems

You will find we’re not like other universities.
Our commitment to research and innovation that really matters is just one example of a game changing approach to what higher education can achieve. Our TEF Gold rating and Top 25 spot in the Guardian University Guide 2019 also speak to our momentum.
