Increasing domestic production of grain legumes is considered an important strategy for improving Europe’s food security, and might have significant co-benefits, such as increasing resilience of European farming systems and reducing fertilizer use, pesticide use and greenhouse gas emissions. But what is the actual potential for expanding plant grain legume production in Europe? The postdoc will develop and analyse scenarios for plant protein production in Europe with a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods. We are looking for a candidate who holds a PhD in e.g. environmental science or geography and has solid experience with spatial analysis.
