    Title:  PhD position in Material Flow Analysis (MFA) and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) (IV-86/17)

    Institution:  Norwegian University of Science and Technology

    Location:  Trondheim, Norway

    Deadline:  March 28, 2017

    Description

    The Department of Energy and Process Engineering at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is seeking a PhD student to develop a spatially explicit model and scenarios for the Norwegian phosphorus cycle. The PhD student will be involved in the project “Nutrients in a Circular Bioeconomy: Barriers and opportunities for Mineral Phosphorus Independence in Norway” (MIND-P).

     Phosphorus is a macronutrient that is essential for food security. Its supply is dependent on finite amounts from reserves concentrated primarily in the Western Sahara and Morocco. This makes Norway vulnerable to supply disruptions. First studies of the phosphorus cycle have demonstrated that Norway generates about four times more secondary phosphorus than it needs for fertilization. The current inefficiency of phosphorus use results in large amounts of phosphorus being accumulated in the soil and in aquatic systems and contributes to eutrophication.

     The goal of the MIND-P project is to analyse pathways towards independence from mineral P fertilizer use through improved recycling with a focus on manure and fish sludge, the two largest sources of secondary phosphorus. The project will be conducted in co-operation with partners from agricultural sciences, from aquaculture sciences, and from industrial ecology. The PhD student will develop a spatially explicit model for the phosphorus stocks and flows in order to evaluate different strategies for secondary phosphorus recycling. The MIND-P project further aims at the development of a Norwegian Phosphorus Platform, and this PhD project will inform and be informed by this platform.

     Qualifications

    The research involves quantitative systems analysis, the use of geographical information systems (GIS), as well as interactions with industry and government representatives. Therefore, the successful candidate should be able to demonstrate a strong background in natural science or engineering, preferable with experience in industrial ecology. Demonstrated experience in the use of GIS is required. Skills and experience in modelling and programming are advantageous. Good communication skills are highly relevant for this project, and knowledge of the Norwegian language is an advantage. The candidate should further be willing to work both independently and in teams with other researchers across disciplines.

     Conditions

    PhD Candidates are remunerated in code 1017, and are normally remunerated at gross NOK 432, 300 before tax. There will be a 2 % deduction to the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund from gross wage.

    Engagement as a PhD Candidate is done in accordance with “Regulation concerning terms and conditions of employment for the posts of post-doctoral research fellow, research fellow, research assistant and resident”, given by the Ministry of Education and Research of 19.07.2010. The goal of the positions is to obtain a PhD degree. Applicants will engage in an organized PhD training program, and appointment requires approval of the applicants plan for a PhD study within three months from the date of commencement.

     The research position is set for a duration of 3 years towards the degree of PhD.

    Title: Postdoctoral Researcher - "Conceptualizing Global Supply Chains in a Circular Economy

    Institution: Circulus

    Location: Freiburg, Germany

    The newly established research group invites applications of suitable candidates for a position as Postdoctoral Researcher.

    The group aims to develop a comprehensive understanding of the emergence and potential pathways of a circular economy in Europe and beyond. To achieve integrated insights into political, economic, and societal change processes, the group combines perspectives from political science, sociology, economics, and engineering/industrial ecology. It is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and located in an exciting, international network of scholars from diverse disciplines.

    About the job

    The Postdoctoral Researcher’s primary task is to advance our understanding of transformation processes in global supply chains of forest and agriculture-based products related to a circular economy. In particular, the Postdoctoral Researcher will analyze opportunities and constraints to the re-organization of supply chains for a circular economy. She/he will further assess synergies and trade-offs between different sustainability objectives (economic, environmental, and social) along existing and potential future chains. This task will involve case study research and quantitative assessments of industry sectors (e.g. on supply chains developing around food waste or paper board). The results will be aligned with political science knowledge on supply chain regulation for a circular economy (generated by other group members). In the latter task, the Postdoctoral Researcher is expected to cooperate closely with the head of the research group. 

    Within this project, the Postdoctoral Researcher will be given considerable freedom to develop her/his own research program and qualify for an advanced academic career. The post includes the opportunity to participate in the supervision of BSc/MSc/PhD theses and teaching at the Faculty. Pursuing a further qualification (Habilitation) is supported but no requirement.

    Qualifications, competencies & experience

    • Master’s degree (or equivalent) in environmental science, economics, or related disciplines;
    • Doctoral Degree in the field of ecological economics, industrial ecology or a related field with a strong focus on sustainable supply chains;
    • Excellent written and oral communication skills in English and good working knowledge of German;
    • Knowledge of issues and processes related to natural resources, environmental management and sustainability;
    • Knowledge of ecological-economic modeling, ecological footprint accounting, life-cycle assessment;
    • A strong interest in interdisciplinary work, especially with the social/political sciences;
    • Demonstrated experience in publishing in peer-reviewed journals and presenting research findings at international scientific conferences;
    • Demonstrated ability to work independently and to adapt to an international work environment;
    • Strong interpersonal skills and a desire to cooperate closely with the group;
    • Ability to engage with researchers and stakeholders from a range of backgrounds.

    We offer

    The position presents the chance to be part of an interdisciplinary group committed to cutting-edge research in sustainability science. Your position includes participation in national and international scientific conferences and the possibility to acquire further training related to your professional development (https://www.frs.uni-freiburg.de/kurse_postdocs-en/index-en?set_language=en) or teaching and learning (https://www.hochschuldidaktik.uni-freiburg.de). You will be located in an interdisciplinary faculty (focusing on environmental and social science) with renowned staff, excellent research networks and an international, multi-disciplinary student body in the heart of the Black Forest.

    The University of Freiburg is an equal opportunity employer committed to fostering heterogeneity among its employees and increasing the proportion of female scientists. Consequently, we actively encourage applications from qualified women.
