Postdoc at the Sustainability Science Centre

We are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic researcher for a 3 year position to start as soon as possible.

Your primary function will be to carry out a self-defined research project with a focus on describing or potentially contributing to a societal transformation aiming at bringing the local, regional or global community on to a sustainable development trajectory. Your PhD can be in any discipline but you are expected to have experience and interest in pursuing researching questions relevant for sustainable development. While furthering your research career, you will also be expected to work closely with the Steering Committee of the Sustainability Science Centre (SSC) in further developing the University’s activities and profile within sustainable development during your period of employment. Such activities include the development of educational initiatives, participation in the planning of scientific workshops/conferences, and dialogue with stakeholders (businesses and other) external to the university.

The SSC (www.sustainability.ku.dk) is an infrastructure linking research, educational, and outreach activities across the University. The SSC is anchored in the Rectorate and currently hosted by Globe Institute in the Faculty of Health Sciences. Governance is provided by a Steering Committee with representatives from all faculties and led by Prof. Katherine Richardson. You will work closely with Richardson in developing the University’s sustainability initiatives but your research will be embedded in the most relevant of the University’s research environments.

Research

It is expected that your research project will focus on a specific aspect of this fundamental transformation towards a more sustainable society.

Place of employment
The place of employment is at Globe Institute, University of Copenhagen. However, your research will be anchored in the most relevant research environment offered at the University.
