Postdoctoral Fellow - Regional Landscapes
Academic Lincoln, Canterbury
As the longest-running agriculturally-based university in the Southern Hemisphere, Lincoln University’s story begins with farming, but it certainly doesn’t end there. As New Zealand’s economy diversified, so have we. Lincoln University is here to enhance and enrich lives. To grow the knowledge of our students so they can shape a world that benefits from a greater understanding of the relationship between our land, the food produced from it and the ecosystems within it. With three academic faculties, one teaching division, several research centres, and a range of corporate service units, the University draws its students from throughout New Zealand and from over 60 countries. Lincoln University has a student roll of around 3,000 and approximately 600 staff.
Working under the guidance of the Associate Professor, Department of Landscape Architecture, this role is involved in designing landscape-centric scenarios for productive landscape futures at regional scales. The research investigates the Mackenzie Basin in Te Wai Pounamu (South Island) in Aotearoa New Zealand. The role will be responsible for developing and populating an innovative layered landscape model that integrates both spatial and values-based properties for the Mackenzie Basin in ways that incorporates expert academic and stakeholder knowledge, and a range of measures, to identify, develop and measure the respective value of novel productive landscape futures.
To be considered for this role you will need to have:
- A PhD in a relevant discipline. Relevant disciplines include land-use and landscape studies, social sciences, human environment relations, environmental sociology, and geography
- Ability to represent diverse land uses, policy positions, and values-based relationships in spatial (including GIS) and other values-based models
- Expertise in working in a range of land-use contexts, with skills in productive and/or urban and/or peri urban environments
- Detailed understanding of land-use issues and tensions in Aotearoa New Zealand and/or international settings
- Excellent written and oral English and communication skills and the ability to communicate effectively
This is a full-time, fixed term position that will end two years from the date of commencement.
