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.
Lecturer in Environmental Economics
(Institute for a Sustainable World)
School of Biological Sciences

The University is investing £6 million in the first phase of ISW including establishing an internationally recognised team of researchers in Environmental Economics.
