Vacancy PhD researcher Integrative and inclusive governance of healthy climate adaptation in Dutch rural regions

Deadline for applications: 25 June 2022

We are looking for an enthusiastic PhD researcher on the governance of integrating climate change adaptation measures with public health and other regional challenges.

Regions are increasingly confronted with implementing various transitions including climate change adaptation, health, agriculture, biodiversity, and energy. However, these transitions are often poorly integrated, resulting in missed opportunities and negative consequences. Three structural characteristics of regional governance systems hinder integration: fragmentation within the governmental administration, focus on the short term benefits and actions, and exclusion of important stakeholders such as marginalized groups. This PhD project will contribute to advancing the scientific and societal basis for developing regional governance systems that are better able to develop and implement climate change adaptation and health solutions in a connective, forward-looking and inclusive manner.

This vacancy will be listed up to and including 25 June 2022. We hope to schedule the first job interviews on 4 July 2022.
