The Australian Centre for Cultural Environmental Research (AUSCCER) is an exciting new research initiative funded by the University of Wollongong and the Australian Research Council, through an Australian Laureate Fellowship to Professor Lesley Head and a Future Fellowship to Professor Chris Gibson. AUSCCER will undertake cultural analysis of Australia's highest priority environmental issues to make both intellectual and practical contributions to the pressing problems of environmental sustainability. It will strengthen national humanities/social science research and research training capacity in the environmental field. We are now seeking postdoctoral scholars, research staff and PhD students to join us in this endeavour.

A strong commitment to fieldwork is expected. (The positions will have a budget allocation to cover fieldwork and conference travel.)
