New gridded information on global land-use dynamics offers exciting avenues for studying issues in biodiversity, climate, food security, and many other research fields. However, these data products inherit tremendous uncertainties that challenge their downstream application. Addressing these uncertainties requires using advanced modelling techniques and powerful computing resources. To model and analyse recent land-use dynamics using cutting-edge methodologies in a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative environment, we offer an exciting three-year postdoctoral researcher position at the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv). The project is supervised by Dr Carsten Meyer (head of iDiv’s Macroecology & Society group) in collaboration with Professor Lars Bernhard (TU Dresden’s Geoinformatics group), Professor Ralf Seppelt (Computational Landscape Ecology department, Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research), and others at iDiv and beyond. The German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) Halle-Jena-Leipzig is a National Research Centre funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). Located in Leipzig, it is a Central Institution of Leipzig University. More information about iDiv:
