The post holder will work closely with academics, researchers, and technical teams across the campuses to deliver solutions and change behaviours that will reduce energy consumption without compromising research data integrity or researcher productivity.

Collaboration and engagement from key stakeholders will be key to the success of the post. This is a brand-new post and the role holder will have a real opportunity to impact and shape sustainability of research at King’s.
