Job opening: MULTAGRI project

Joern has kindly given me permission to briefly use the blog to distribute the advert for a position on a research project called ‘MULTAGRI: Rural Development through Governance of Multifunctional Agricultural Land Use’.  Thanks Joern!

The project aims to investigate how governance of agricultural landscapes in Europe can promote rural development by promoting sustainable production alongside the provision of a range of ecosystem services provided by biodiversity.  Its an exciting project, based across eight research institutes and engaging with ecologists, economists and political scientists.

The position is for a research associate in ‘Institutional Change for the Governance of Sustainable Agriculture’.    We have been working on assessing current governance systems in four case study sites, and have been developing ecologically-informed, multi-level governance scenarios.  The focus of the advertised position will be on assessing the changes necessary to move from the current systems to the scenarios, and on assessing the acceptability of these changes to stakeholders.  It can be done on a full- or part-time basis and is ideal for someone looking to develop a career in research in sustainability science.
