Postdoctoral Research Associate Positions available

The deadline to apply for any of the three PDRA positions to support the UKRI-GCRF Water and Fire project at the three institutions – University of Stirling, University of Cape Town, and the University of the Western Cape has been extended to 31st May 2020. PDFs with details on how to apply are attached below. Since the research seeks co-mobilised, bottom-up approaches to ‘disaster risk management’ within the context of disenfranchised residents’ experiences of disaster on the Cape Flats (Cape Town), it is critical that the current ongoing pandemic be incorporated as further complicating such experiences of disaster.
