In the POLISES group (www.polises.de) at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research UFZ Leipzig, Germany, a three years PhD Position on “Model-based exploration of leverage points to foster sustainable nitrogen management in German agriculture” is offered from Mai 1, 2022 on with a methodological focus on social-ecological modelling and agent-based modelling.
The aim of the PhD project is to investigate the effects of policy measures for sustainable nitrogen management of farmers in Germany. This shall be achieved by developing an integrated model complex that makes both the socio-economic and the biophysical sides of the system explicit and thus allows the consideration of various types of policy measures as well as feedbacks within the system. A focus is set on the adequate representation of farmers.
The deadline for application is April 6, 2022.
