Postdoc position in Global Environmental Governance at Utrecht University (1.0 FTE)

Image
  Utrecht University has opened a two-year postdoctoral research position in the field of global environmental governance. The postdoctoral researcher will become part of the new, cutting-edge research project  ‘Problem-Shifting between International Environmental Treaty Regimes: Causes, Consequences, and Solutions’  ( ProblemShifting ). This research project is directed by  Asst. Prof. Rakhyun E. Kim , and funded for five years (2021-2026) through a 1.5 million euro ‘Starting Grant’ from the European Research Council.   The project explores a major dilemma in global environmental governance, that decisions to protect one part of the environment often lead to new, and sometimes even more chronic and severe, environmental problems – the phenomenon known as global ‘environmental problem-shifting’. In this project, we focus in particular on problem-shifting occurring between international environmental treaty regimes, which are articulated in over a thousand issue-specific multilateral en

  The Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development at Utrecht University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at Assistant Professor level in the Environmental Sciences group. Human-induced pressures such as nutrient enrichment, climate change and land use change for food production are altering terrestrial ecosystems and threatening biodiversity. You will contribute to understanding the effects of these pressures on terrestrial vegetation in the context of global change and the ambition of sustainable development. Your research specifically contributes to halting biodiversity loss and solving the friction between nature and agriculture. You are expected to develop an internationally renowned research line at the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development. As our new Assistant Professor you will teach in the Bachelor's programme Global Sustainability Science (i.e. teaching in courses on natural processes and (biogeo)chemistry and developing a Sustainable

  To be a doctoral student means to devote oneself to a research project under supervision of experienced researchers and following an individual study plan. For a doctoral degree, the equivalent of four years of full-time doctoral education is required. The research group Aging Research Center is one of the divisions at the NVS Department, located at KI campus Solna. The Aging Research Center is a multidisciplinary academic environment, representing psychology, sociology, and various branches of medicine (e.g., neurology, epidemiology, and psychiatry). In the psychology sector of the center, we examine brain correlates of cognitive aging and seek to understand how genetic and lifestyle factors shape development of brain and cognition in adulthood and old age. We approach these research questions with small-scale neuroimaging studies, large-scale intervention (e.g., training) studies, and large-scale population-based longitudinal studies. Our research group consists of senior researche
