Stockholm Resilience Centre is seeking a top young scientist for an interdisciplinary study that aims to reframe nature conservation in cities and urbanising regions. The successful candidate will seek the answer to the question: does high quality nature become an integral part in densifying cities, and how? The aims are to identify potential linkages between protected areas and surrounding urban landscape, and, in an iterative, transdisciplinary process, develop strategies for building resilience in these linkages over time. The position is connected to two ongoing research projects at SRC: CONATURE (exploring the potential of nature protected areas in supporting biodiversity and ecosystem service benefits at a landscape scale in the Stockholm region), and ENABLE (a Stockholm-based European collaborative project forming an innovative branch of the Centre’s history of extensive academic research in the theory and practice of resilience for sustainable development).
We announce PhD positions four times per year. The announcement dates 2017 are:
1 February – 1 March
2 April - 2 May
30 August - 30 September
20 October - 20 November
