Om jobbet

Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management
The Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management is part of the faculty for Landscape Planning, Horticulture and Agricultural Sciences. Teaching and research responsibilities of the department cover six thematic areas: landscape planning, landscape analysis, governance and management, urban vegetation, cultural heritage, and design of urban landscapes. Teaching and research are multidisciplinary, including the perspectives of the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and technology. Of special concern is the development of action-oriented knowledge about society and sustainable urban environments through studies of planning and design practices. The department’s staff comprises 80 members, active in both teaching and research.
Duties:
The PostDoc position is part of a larger EU funded project (CONEXUS) focusing on strengthening international cooperation on sustainable urbanization by the use of nature-based solutions (NBS), as well as strengthening collaboration between European (EU) countries and Community of Latin American and Caribbean (CELAC) states.

CONEXUS is a consortium of EU and CELAC partners, including research partners, NGO’s and seven large cities. The cities share common challenges of sustainable urbanization and the PostDoc will be part of coordinating the development of local ‘Life-Lab’ partnerships in each of the partner cities. This includes participatory engagement to identify, initiate and co-create NBS interventions locally in Europe and South America.

In addition to being engaged within CONEXUS (50%) the PostDoc will also develop own research in relation to the topic of landscape governance, as well as being engaged in developing and contributing to various educational activities.

 

Qualifications:

As postdoctoral appointments are career-developing positions for junior researchers, we are primarily looking for candidates with a doctoral degree that is three years old at most.

Required:

  • PhD completed in landscape architecture, geography, ecology, social sciences or related field
  • Demonstrated research experience on the topics of planning and/or governance in relation to green infrastructure and nature-based solutions
  • Excellent written and oral English communication skills
  • Good written and oral Spanish communication skills
  • Effective inter- and intrapersonal communication skills

  • Demonstrated experience in engaging diverse stakeholders (e.g., industry, government, academics and landholders)
  • Experience from international project
  • Experience of project management
  • Teaching experience at academic level
