Postdoctoral Researcher (f/m/d) on plural values and equity in biodiversity and ecosystem services governance
The mission of the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) as a nationally and internationally active research institute is to deliver solutions for an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable agriculture – together with society. ZALF is a member of the Leibniz Association and is located in Müncheberg (approx. 35 minutes by regional train from Berlin-Lichtenberg). It also maintains a research station with further locations in Dedelow and Paulinenaue.
As part of the working group “Governance of Ecosystem Services” the postdoc position will engage in the BridgingVALUES project. The project aims to understand how EU nature conservation policies have consequences both within and outside the EU, and to inform both the EU and connected country nature conservation policies and practices towards more equitable and effective biodiversity governance. It will do so by generating a better understanding of the interdependencies and feedbacks between EU and global immaterial and material flows, and local governance of protected areas (PAs), via case studies in Germany, Spain, Sweden, and Brazil, Laos, South Africa. The project’s main research objectives include: to study how local contexts mediate the effects of global environmental policy flows, and assess their local social-ecological impacts; advance the state-of-the-art in transdisciplinary co-production methodologies incorporating the knowledge of stakeholders through case studies; and co-construct a conceptual framework that links conservation policies to social-ecological outcomes by exploring the relationships between bundles of material flows (e.g. finance and technical expertise) and immaterial flows (discourses and knowledge), biodivefsity and ecosystem services (BES) values, power relations, social equity and leverage points for transformative change.
