Postdoctoral fellow on Dynamics of interconnected crises in the global economy and the environment (pre-call)
The new landscape of interconnected crises emphasizes the importance of understanding how components of the global system absorb, transmit and link together social and ecological shocks. However, there is a lack of empirical methods to study these questions.
This post-doc will aim to develop such methods and apply them to test theories of global system dynamics and resilience under multiple crises. This will likely entail combining qualitative as well as quantitative methods in innovative ways.
Interested candidates should contact and discuss the potential focus of the position with Peter Søgaard Jørgensen (email@example.com), Deputy Executive Director of the programme Global Economic Dynamics and the Biosphere (GEDB) at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and Theme Leader at Stockholm Resilience Centre.
The position will be formally advertised once one or more suitable candidates have been identified.
Postdoctoral fellow on mid-value chain engagement for food system transformation (pre-call)
The ReSus project under the Global Economic Dynamics and the Biosphere (GEDB) programme is pre-advertising a two year postdoc position, which will focus on analysing the effectiveness of retail led sustainability (and health) initiatives, in Sweden and internationally.
The postdoc will work on identifying barriers and enablers (e.g., legal and/or organizational) for successful implementation of sustainability initiatives and pre-competitive collaboration for sustainability in the retail sector.
Interested candidates should contact Malin Jonell (firstname.lastname@example.org), project leader of ReSus and Theme Leader for the Food for Resilience theme at Stockholm Resilience Centre to discuss the potential focus of the position.
The position will be formally advertised later in the fall 2022.
