Lecturer in Environmental Economics at Queen's Belfast.

For any jobbing environmental economist, Queen's University Belfast have an interesting new post. It is reassuring to see a well respected University plough such considerable sums into "sustainable development" however defined.

To be based in a School of Biological Sciences would worry me a little though.
