University of Lodz (Faculty of Economics and Sociology) is recruiting a full time Junior Researcher (Research Fellow) to work on the new EU FP7-funded project Green Infrastructure and Urban Biodiversity for Sustainable Urban Development and the Green Economy (GREEN SURGE). The project is a transdisciplinary collaboration between 24 international partners which aims to :
1) develop urban green infrastructure as a planning concept for both integration and promotion of biodiversity and ecosystem services, and adapt it to local contexts ;
2) apply an innovative biocultural diversity perspective to develop successful governance arrangements facilitating socio-ecological integration and local engagement in planning of urban green spaces ; and
3) explore how valuation and real market integration of biodiversity and ecosystem services can facilitate choices in favour of the development of multifunctional green spaces in urban areas.
Selected candidates may be asked to submit a piece of written work, such as one or two published articles, or a chapter of their thesis. Applicants should indicate in their cover letter which material they propose to submit, if invited to do so, but should not at this stage submit any written work.
Applications for this post will formally open on 20 December 2013 and close on 2 February 2014 (at 12.00 noon CET).
Interviews with selected candidates will take place in the first half of February (in English) and the final selection will be made in on 12 February 2014.
