Are you our next postdoc with a focus on national biodiversity accounting?

The Department of Political Science invites applications for a 2-year postdoctoral position to develop tools for national biodiversity accounting. The postdoctoral position is fully funded for 2 years and is located at the Department of Political Science. The position entails teaching equivalent to approximately 5%. The deadline for applications is 12 May 2024.

Project description

The position is part of the 4-year research programme Mistra Biopath (https://www.mistrabiopath.se/) and in particular the work package "Mainstreaming biodiversity through governance innovations".

Mistra Biopath is an interdisciplinary research programme that aims to identify, assess, co-develop and test existing and new approaches to integrating biodiversity considerations into financial decision-making, as well as analysing the institutional and political consequences of potential changes.

The current position is based on a partnership with the Basque Center for Climate Change (BC3) at which they are developing artificial intelligence to integrate modeling of coupled human-natural systems. BC3 is specifically developing ARIES (Artificial Intelligence for Environment and Sustainability; https://aries.integratedmodelling.org/) to better integrate ecosystem services into the UN system of national accounts.

You will work in an interdisciplinary environment that is particularly focused on applied and solution-oriented research of strategic relevance to the transition to a better integration of biodiversity into decision-making.
