Our multi-disciplinary team includes expertise in (complex) systems analysis, modelling, agro-ecology, co-innovation, policy formation and immersive education. We uniquely combine a strong platform of simulation models with hands-on, empirical assessments of outstanding examples of sustainable farms and landscapes in all continents.
We are recruiting:
Postdoc, with scope for Tenure Track to Personal Professor
We now seek to strengthen our team with expertise in the ecological design of foodscapes. The successful candidate will develop a research portfolio that focusses on connecting and integrating knowledge and data on food production, ecosystem services, ecological and socio-economic processes at landscape/community level, for a wide range of case-studies around the world, using a variety of modelling tools ranging from conceptual frameworks to simulation models and GIS. This work will contribute to a coherent modelling platform, being developed by the FSE group, which includes the integrated use of Augmented Reality for both research and educational purposes. The models will be used (by both the successful candidate and colleagues) for the analysis and design of exemplar sustainable foodscapes. Crucially, this includes the linking of the models to emperical examples of outstanding foodscapes around the globe, known as the "network of lighthouse farms & foodscapes".Read more
