We encourage new team members, collaborations and connections; there are many ways you can work with us.

We are on the look-out for people to support our work collating and translating evidence for Nature-based Solutions, as well to conduct applied research at the interface of climate, biodiversity and human well-being. Please get in touch if you would like to join us. We do not have funding for posts at the moment, but if you scroll down there are suggestions as to how you might find funds from alternative sources.

02 Become an ally or expert advisor

Establishing the widespread use of Nature-based Solutions will take the combined efforts of a large community of researchers, practitioners and policy makers, so please let us know if you are interested in  working with us. Whether you wish to co-create datasets and tools, co-convene knowledge exchange workshops, do research or fundraise, we would love to hear from you.

Various Oxford Colleges have Junior Research Fellowship positions, which can be found in the University Gazette. Fellowship schemes from NERC, ESRC, the Royal Society can provide substantial funding, as can Marie Curie fellowships which allow people to come from locations outside the UK.


Projects will often be co-supervised with people from other disciplines, with stakeholders identifying research questions, developing methods and delivering impact. Details about the application process are found here. The main source of funding for PhD projects is through the NERC DTP scheme.


We can offer two FHS projects to Oxford undergrads each year.
