The University of Luxembourg is building a transdisciplinary team of researchers who engage in transformative sustainability science. The University invites applications for 3-year full-time post doc position in this team (the position is extendable to 5 years). Preference will be given to candidates who combine academic expertise relating to research on social-ecological-technological systems with a focus on water or land-use with practical experience in the implementation of scenario approaches, co-design processes, or citizen science. Familiarity with the field of Science Technology Studies is considered very helpful.
This position is part of the project NEXUS FUTURES that is funded by the Luxembourg Ministry for Sustainable Development and Infrastructures and the University of Luxembourg. The project seeks to foster transformative learning for sustainable water and land-use governance by engaging stakeholders in collaborative systems mapping and scenario approaches, as well as by co-designing a citizen science tool set for use in river-partnerships and in schools (see attached project description).
As most project-related work with stakeholders is conducted in German and academic publications will be written in English, candidates have to be fluent in both languages. French is an asset, as most relevant policy documents and legislation in Luxembourg are in French.
The University is tri-lingual, one of Europe’s most international, and presents a safe space to acquire an additional working language. Luxembourg offers a very high quality of life, a very open international community, short paths to government, and a high degree of influence in the EU. The contract offers competitive compensation, excellent health care and rarely matched paid time off.
Applicants should submit online a letter of motivation, C.V., writing samples, and three letters of recommendation. Review of applications will commence immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Early applications are encouraged.
