The Wyss Academy for Nature at the University of Bern is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to join the research team on Climate Scenarios for Sustainable Development led by Prof. Edouard Davin. The team undertake research investigating linkages between climate, biodiversity and land use by combining Earth System Modelling and data-driven approaches. We aim to identify synergies between climate change adaptation and mitigation, nature conservation and human wellbeing and to explore future sustainable development pathways. The engagement platform which is an integral part of the Wyss Academy will ensure that the produced knowledge is made available to stakeholders at the global level as well as in the regional hubs, thus facilitating the emergence of innovative solutions to cope with climate change and reverse biodiversity loss. For this position, expertise is required in one or more of the following areas: 1) climate change mitigation pathways, in particular the role of Nature-Based Solutions and land use toward climate-neutrality 2) global or regional climate modelling with a link to terrestrial processes 3) sustainable food systems and agroecology.
