Full-time permanent academic position in the wider field of Environmental Humanities

The Institute for Environmental Management and Land-use Planning (http://igeat.ulb.ac.be/) within the Department for Geosciences, Environment and Society (https://www2.ulb.ac.be/facs/sciences/dges) is seeking to appoint a new colleague to enter a full-time permanent academic position in the wider field of Environmental Humanities to reinforce its research and teaching capacities in the domain of Sustainability Sciences.
The profile is oriented to recruit a colleague with a research experience situated in the understanding of citizens/individuals/consumers as actors in societal, sustainability-oriented transition and transformation processes, be the latter wanted, imagined, governed or forced upon actors. The candidate should demonstrate research activities in the strong sustainability domain centered on the analyses at micro-levels (individuals, consumers, citizens) or meso-levels (collectives, movements, groups, initiatives, networks), while in the same time being able to link these to developments at macro-levels, for instance by questioning institutional or societal structures, or developing governance aspects. The profile excludes any mono-disciplinary approaches, and calls for candidates who anchor their work in approaches lend from the social and human sciences (in the wider sense) in order to investigate conditions or characteristics of strong sustainability by deploying pedagogical and research competences that are resolutely inter- and/or transdisciplinary.

Join scientists in their call for a greener, pro-sustainability, and more cost-efficient Common Agricultural Policy

The European Union is in the midst of a reform of the Common Agriculture Policy (CAP), to shape the spending of nearly 40% of the EU’s budget over another 7-year period (2021-2027). In parallel, the new Commission has made an ambitious announcement to present, by March 2020, a “European Green Deal” that will address critical environmental and sustainability challenges.

Unfortunately, neither the CAP proposal made by the European Commission nor the initial proposal for the EU Green Deal, acknowledged the unequivocal evidence indicating agriculture to be a key driver of biodiversity loss and a significant contributor to climate change; as well as strong evidence that the CAP fails on all dimensions of sustainability.

To inform the reform process and help shaping a better EU Green Deal, an interdisciplinary group of scientists have written a declaration proposing ten concrete action points that decision-makers should consider for the CAP reform and for the so-called “Farm to Fork” Strategy.

Scientists who share a sense of importance in the message, and wish to support a call by the scientific community to direct Europe’s agriculture toward delivering sustainable food, biodiversity conservation, and climate mitigation, is welcome to join the position paper as a signatory: www.idiv.de/en/cap-scientists-statement
