PhD student in Sustainability Science (A)

We seek to recruit a motivated PhD student in Sustainability Science, to join a research project combining concepts of circular economy and planetary boundaries. The project’s focus is on selected bio-economy sectors (e.g., fibres, food, energy) and the European Union from a consumption-based perspective.

Application date 24 April 2018. Read more here:

PhD student in Sustainability Science (B)

The student will be part of a project that studies efforts to improve the understanding of interactions among planetary boundaries (the boundaries in which the Earth system remains in a stable state), and to understand the implications of simultaneous human pressure on several systems that is characteristic of the Anthropocene – the human dominated era. The PhD student will be investigating effects of land-use and climate change altering moisture feedbacks (change of rainfall patterns) affecting ecological and anthropogenic systems (e.g. rainforest systems, agricultural systems).

Application deadline is 24 April 2018. Read more here

PhD student in Sustainability Science (C)

The PhD position is part of a new FORMAS project with the aim of exploring pathways to attain the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of eradicating hunger and securing sustainable food for all by 2030 in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Here malnourishment, poverty and population growth are highest in the world, in regions subject to extreme water variability and scarcity. A key research question is how much water is required, available, and possible to manage in ways that build water resilience in order to attain the SDGs in SSA.

Application deadline is 24 April 2018. Read more here
