2 new positions in collaboration with Eklipse

 

The Department of Conservation Biology and Social-Ecological Systems (NSF), at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (Germany), is offering two positions with a start date of November 1st, 2022:

Researcher / Postdoc position (f/m/x): Improving the interdisciplinary design, ethics, orchestration and impact of Science Policy interfaces (SPIs) to support biodiversity conservation and sustainability transformation

Starting date: November 1st. Initially limited for 3 years.
Working time can be arranged flexible between 50% (19,5 hours per week) and 100% (39 hours per week).

A wealth of research already exists to address the biodiversity crisis and the gaps to better implement EU policies. However, converting this into actionable knowledge as well as implementing policies have remained challenging. To tackle those challenges, at the European scale, and to enable better informed decisions the EU is putting in place key actors and processes at the interface between policy, science and society to better implement biodiversity commitments and to support the EU taking leadership on transformation towards more sustainable futures. The position is located in the Department’s Working Group on Biodiversity Science-Policy Interface led by Dr. Vandewalle with collaborations across working groups and other departments. The Department and the Working Group is an interdisciplinary team embedded in a well-connected international community of experts working at the interface and plays a leading role in the development and management of key science-policy interfaces in biodiversity conservation globally, at the EU-level and nationally; e.g. Eklipse, Alternet, Biodiversa+, IPBES. Since July 1st, the Department and Working Group is part of the co-coordination team of the new EU project “BioAgora” which will establish the EU “Science Service” aiming at ratcheting up the implementation of biodiversity commitments.
