Om jobbet

Södertörns högskola (Södertörn University) in south Stockholm is a dynamic institute of higher education with a unique profile and high academic standard. A large proportion of the university staff holds doctorates and there is a strong link between undergraduate education and research. Södertörn University has around 11 000 students and 840 employees. Undergraduate and postgraduate education and research are conducted in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Life Sciences, Technology and Education. Our site is in Flemingsberg. Södertörn University is an equal opportunities employer.

At Södertörn University we focus on Environmental Science as a broad interdisciplinary research subject that examiners societal interactions with natural values, processes and resources. Environmental Science covers the study of ecological, climatic, and other natural processes that affect ecosystems over space and time, human-induced environmental problems, and environmental policy, governance and sustainability challenges. Research in Environmental Science at Södertörn University focuses on two integrated themes: (1) Sustainability challenges and pathways and (2) Environment. These themes and research in Environmental Science at Södertörn University is described in more detail here.  

Planning with Youth is a research project which aims to contribute to sustainable spatial planning by focusing on meaningful engagement and participatory tools and methods, and on current challenges planners face when engaging youth in participatory spatial planning processes. We integrate methods for knowledge synthesis with methods used in qualitative empirical inquiry. In collaboration with artists, educators, and experts in serious games, we will test-explore a collection of alternative (participatory) tools, and develop recommendations for more meaningful, inclusive and forward looking participatory planning processes aiming for more sustainable living environments in Sweden, and elsewhere. The project is funded by FORMAS (the Swedish Research Council for Sustainable Development) and is a collaborative endeavor between researchers based at Södertörn University and researchers based at Copenhagen University (Denmark) , Wageningen University (the Netherlands), and Winnipeg University (Canada). Please note that travel for conducting field work and implement project activities, in Sweden and abroad, is required for this position.
