Centre for Development and Environment (CDE), University of Bern Start of employment: 01.06.2023 or earliest convenience, limited for 3 years
As the University's competence hub for sustainability transformations, the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE) fosters interdisciplinary research, implementation and teaching concerned with transformation and sustainable development. We shape our research agenda in long-standing North- South partnerships, our emphasis being on transformative science and transdisciplinary approaches. Research is at the core of our activities. However, we also have a strong record of both, hands-on implementation, education for sustainable development as well as science-policy-society engagement.
Within the SNSF-funded Biodiversa+ project INSPIRE (INtegrated Spatial PlannIng across REalms for biodiversity conservation and human development in a context of change) we are offering a 3-year PostDoc position in environmental economics. INSPIRE aims at creating a unified decision-support framework that addresses simultaneously multiple challenges that have limited the effectiveness of conservation action in the past. The PostDoc will derive monetary values for ecosystem services by applying the exchange value approach within the project's 3 case study areas: Tagus River catchment, estuary and nearby sea (Portugal/Spain); Aegean Sea and river catchments (Greece), and Lake Neusiedl and Seewinkel wetlands(Austria). The PostDoc will also develop a typology of integration mechanisms within policy instruments that address cross-realm and cross-sector dependencies.
The candidate should meet the following requirements:
