New professorial and research positions in SPRU
SPRU is looking for a number of dynamic, innovative and highly respected academic leaders to join our team to help shape our research activity and organisational development.
Three new professorships in Sustainability Transitions, Innovation and Evolutionary Economics and Energy Policy within SPRU - an internationally recognised leading centre of research on science, technology and innovation policy are now open for applications.
As SPRU looks ahead to its 50th anniversary in 2016, it is embarking on an ambitious, new research strategy, focused on long-term transformative change and innovation. These posts will help shape this important agenda as well as contributing to the broader rich research and teaching environment with SPRU. In addition, the Research Centre on Innovation and Energy Demand (CIED), led by the Sussex Energy Group at SPRU, is seeking to appoint researchers.
The Scuola Normale Superiore announces a selection, based on work to date and interview, for a research contract as part of the research project “Governance shifts and policy tools mixes in education and higher education policies. A comparative perspective”.
In the last twenty years, scholars in public policy have devoted a lot of attention to the changes in the governance arrangements. The main focus of this stream of research has been on the transformation of governance modes (and of the policy tools adopted) without enough emphasis both on the real policy performance of these changes and on convincing interpretations of the occurred governance shifts.
Thus, the research project in which the grant is given is focused on analysing which causal mechanisms have influenced the governance shifts, and ‘whether’, and ‘in what sense’, such “new” governance arrangements and policy instruments mixes have been, and are, effective respect to the expected policy outcomes. To answer these research questions, the project should work both on a small N of cases research strategy and a large N of cases research strategy (in the fields of education and higher education policies).
Within this general framework, according to the indications of the scientific coordinator of the project, prof. Giliberto Capano, the grant holder should focus on the development of an innovative theoretical framework capable to grasp the causal relations between changes in governance arrangement, and policy instruments, with their real effects in education and higher education policies.

About the project
Understanding how changes in interconnected social-ecological systems facilitate the transformation to sustainability represents one of the key challenges of sustainability science. Drawing on insights from systems thinking and solution-oriented transdisciplinary research, this project will focus on hitherto under-recognized leverage points – system properties where a small shift can lead to fundamental changes in the system as a whole. Leverage Points will focus on changes in relatively intractable, but potentially highly influential, system properties that could help to realign complex social-ecological systems to the normative goals of sustainability. Specifically, we will analyse three sustainability-relevant leverage points: 1) institutional dynamics (RESTRUCTURE); 2) human-environment interactions (RECONNECT); and 3) sustainability-related knowledge creation and use (RETHINK). The three leverage points will be studied individually and with regard to their interdependencies, on two key themes (food and energy) in two contrasting case study regions (Transylvania in Romania, and Lower Saxony in Germany).
