Wageningen UR (University & Research centre) looks for a post-doc researcher who will support the process of developing multi-scale participatory scenarios for a number of case studies in Latin America and Europe, relating to a range of issues importantly including deforestation, biodiversity loss and climate adaptation/mitigation. Three large European projects, focusing on
climate adaptation, biodiversity, and land use change, all seek to develop integrated scenarios of land use
change through linking models and stakeholder-driven products. All projects are strongly interdisciplinary and demand knowledge integration and knowledge co-production. » Read the full article
