Organization

KU Leuven

Deadline

Thursday, March 2, 2017

Start Date

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

In close collaboration with KU Leuven academic staff from the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (Division of Geography and Tourism) and Department of Biology (Division of Ecology, Evolution and Conservation), the selected postdoctoral fellow will support the setting up, implementation and daily management of the Master of Science in Sustainable Development and connected activities. The postdoctoral collaborator will play a crucial coordination role in supporting the effective implementation of the Master’s vision, goals and strategy. The Sustainable Development Living Lab is the major methodological innovation introduced by this Master. This lab will be a mobile platform through which this ICP community will apply sustainability knowledge to problems of the Global South.  The lab will connect students, staff from the KU Leuven and Global South partner institutions from Africa, Asia and Latin America, but also practitioners and policy-makers, NGOs, representatives of the private sector, among others. In short, this Master programme embraces sustainability and development and engages with real world settings, localities and their communities in a still unachieved sustainability journey. You can apply for this job no later than March 02, 2017 via the online application tool
