OPPORTUNITY: Post doc in transformative sustainability science

The university of Luxemburg invite applications for a 3-year full time Post Doc position in a transdisciplinary team of researchers. The position is part of the project NEXUS FUTURES, and seeks to foster transformative learning for sustainable water and land-use governance. Review of applications will commence immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Apply now!

The University of Luxembourg is building a transdisciplinary team of researchers who engage in transformative sustainability science and invite applications for a 3-year full-time post doc position, extendable to 5 years, within this team. Preference will be given to candidates who combine academic expertise relating to research on social-ecological-technological systems with a focus on water or land-use with practical experience in the implementation of scenario approaches, co-design processes, or citizen science. Work experience outside of academia is considered a strong asset, apart from an excellent track record in research and teaching.

The project seeks to foster transformative learning for sustainable water and land-use governance by engaging stakeholders in collaborative systems mapping and scenario approaches, as well as by co-designing a citizen science tool set for use in river-partnerships and in schools (see attached project description). The position is part of the project NEXUS FUTURES, funded by the Luxembourg Ministry for Sustainable Development and Infrastructures and the University of Luxembourg. As most project-related work with stakeholders is conducted in German and academic publications will be written in English, candidates have to be fluent in both languages. French is an asset, as most relevant policy documents and legislation in Luxembourg are in French.

Applicants should submit online a letter of motivation, C.V., writing samples, and three letters of recommendation. Review of applications will commence immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Early applications are encouraged.
