We're excited to announce that the Global Landscapes Initiative is hiring
one or more postdoctoral research fellows to study how the connections
between land use change, agriculture, and the environment affect risks to
the global food system. Our research group of 10+ people draws on a broad
set of skills to identify solutions to major global challenges, publish
research in high-profile academic journals, and offers great opportunities
for interdisciplinary work. The research is highly collaborative both
within the team, with other research groups at the Institute on the
Environment, and with other leading academic and non-profit institutions.
The Global Landscapes Initiative is part of the Institute on the
Environment, which broadly addresses challenges at the nexus of energy,
food, and water.
Potential research areas include:
• Tradeoffs among land use intensification, food
production, and the environment.
• The variability of climate, crop yields, and price and
how their interactions influence risks to the global food system.
• Methods of quantifying, and improving, resilience of the
global food system.
• Linkages between agricultural production (both crop and
livestock) and conversion of natural habitats.
• Measuring and increasing sustainability of global supply
The position is available immediately and is based in St. Paul, Minnesota.
The initial appointment is for one year, but may be renewed for a second
Applications are only accepted through the University of Minnesota's online
Here's the link for more details about the position and where to apply.
Please share this announcement with your colleagues.
