The mission of the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) as a nationally and internationally active research institute is to deliver solutions for an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable agriculture – together with society. ZALF is a member of the Leibniz Association and is located in Müncheberg (approx. 35 minutes by regional train from Berlin-Lichtenberg). It also maintains a research station with further locations in Dedelow and Paulinenaue.

The advertised position will support the European Partnership “Accelerating farming systems transition: Agroecology Living Labs and Research Infrastructures”. The assumption of this AGROECOLOGY Partnership is that the challenges faced by the European agricultural sector can be addressed through agroecology, which is a systemic approach that builds on natural, biological interactions while using state-of-the-art science and technology, and innovation based on farmers’ knowledge and tested best practices. The partnership relies on a common vision to team-up and unlock the transition to agroecology so that farming systems are resilient, productive and prosperous, place-sensitive, as well as climate, environment, ecosystem, biodiversity and people-friendly by 2050. ZALF is part of the AGROECOLOGY Partnership, which is expected to start at 1st of January 2024.

The particular focus of the advertised position within the AGROECOLOGY-Team at ZALF is on identifying and engaging actors and stakeholders of the value chain and on providing methodological guidance (co-creation and collective intelligence methods) that promote the development of new Agroecology Living Labs.
