  • Senior Policy Advisor at the Open Data Institute (ODI) 

Reporting to the Head of Policy, the Senior Policy Advisor works across a number of initiatives that develop, test, communicate and implement policy.

We are a global organisation headquartered in London and our work has international application. Your work will be focussed on the European Commission and EU member states outside the UK. A component of our strategy is the need to reassert our international expertise. You will help deliver that component within the EU.

We are not partisan but we believe that data is a political topic. You will work as openly and fearlessly as possible, iteratively improving our work based on what we and our network learn from research, tests and delivery.

This is an exciting opportunity to have a huge impact helping people, businesses, and governments adapt to and shape the changes that data is bringing to our world. We are still discovering what those changes are, you will help with that discovery.

As Senior Policy Advisor you will work closely with the rest of our team and network using your expertise to help tackle real problems. This year we are particularly focussed on issues around international trade. 

Your key responsibilities will be to:

  • work with the rest of our team on a range of projects, especially our new innovation programme, to develop, test, communicate and implement policy advice alongside their work.
  • provide management and leadership to projects that are predominantly focussed on the EU or trade between European countries.
  • respond to consultations, such as the ongoing process on reuse of public sector information (PSI), and provide advice to governments and the European Commission.
  • work with and help develop our global network of nodes, members and partners.
  • help to develop, maintain and communicate policy positions and guides such as our work on data infrastructure, policy design patterns, personal data, opportunities created by GDPR and increasing data collaboration between countries.
  • work with the ODI team to develop and contribute our thinking to topical data debates such as artificial intelligence, GDPR, equity, ethics, and competition policy.
  • support the whole team, including board members, with policy advice.
  • build and maintain relationships with other people and organisations who influence policy, practice and regulation around data within the EU.
  • represent the ODI at events including conferences, roundtables and workshops.

Deadline for applications: 5pm on Friday 9 March 2018.

  • PhD Studentship at the Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures, University of Sheffield - project "A new climate of public reason: impact and trust in science communication"

The Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures focuses on advancing sustainability research and connecting it with the policy debate around how humans can live in a more sustainable way. 

We are recruiting Scholars who will combine outstanding intellect with a strong commitment to public engagement, leadership and action. These ambitious individuals will complete interdisciplinary PhD research projects to help solve the challenges of sustainability. They will be supported by the Centre through a unique training programme, designed to equip them with the skills to become policy advocates and leaders in sustainability matters. 

Sustainability scientists face an increasingly acute problem: how to maximise the impact of their research while maintaining scientific norms such as disinterestedness and universalism? Some argue that the urgency of issues such as climate change requires scientists to adopt more normative roles in political debates; as well as describing ‘what is’, advocating ‘what ought to be’. The idea that political change can be affected through increasing flows of scientific information - the communication ‘deficit model’ - is widely discredited. Instead, this PhD builds on scholarship in both science and technology studies (STS) and psychology emphasising the dynamics of public reasoning: how to maintain trust, communicate uncertainty and foster conversations with diverse groups in a world of informational abundance. We ask: what can climate scientists contribute to public reasoning about climate change, how can they do it, and what support do they need? 

We invite applicants interested in these themes to apply for this PhD. There will be opportunities to shape the focus of thesis, but the ideas of public reasoning and climate change must be core. 

Deadline for applications: 26-03-2018
