The SRC aims to foster new generations of researchers and academic leaders through our Resilience Research School. The position will be associated with the ERC project MuSES - Towards middle-range theories of the co-evolutionary dynamics of multi-level social-ecological systems, with a focus on the study of cross-scale dynamics in small-scale fishery and agricultural systems. The position will focus on analyzing the role of networks of traders at local and regional scales for the resilience and governance of small scale fisheries in Mexico and small-holder agriculture in Africa or Latin America. The student must be interested in and capable of eliciting, synthesizing, and formalizing available social and natural science knowledge from the case studies as well as relevant theory to inform a social-ecological model that can be used to explore the consequences for SES outcomes of different assumptions about social-ecological interactions within and across scales.
