Socio-ecological systems understanding is key to achieving sustainability across scales: from urban food systems and global value chains of land-based commodities to achieving climate and biodiversity targets. Modelling can help to better understand complex, multi-scale systems by enhancing system understanding and assessment of the systemic effects of policies and other interventions. However, modelling tools for socio-ecological systems analysis need further development and real-world testing. This postdoc position aims at contributing such modelling work to a series of externally funded projects. The overall aim is to advance our methods for addressing socio-ecological systems. One of the projects focuses on urban food systems in Africa, another one on the adoption of alternative farming systems in Europe. In addition, the postdoc will supervise Msc students during their thesis work.
