We are currently looking for a person with a particular interest in research within forest planning and the development of planning models for forestry based on high-resolution data. The developed models should be able to identify optimal management activities over time from a property perspective, without relying on the traditional stand division. The models should be implementable in the Heureka system. Heureka is designed for analyses of sustainable and multi-objective forestry (www.slu.se/heureka). The system includes several software and tools for simulation, optimization, GIS operations, database management, etc. The postdoc position is part of the research program Mistra Digital Forest (MDF), which supports society's transition to a sustainable circular bioeconomy. In MDF, researchers from various universities and disciplines collaborate to develop useful digital tools and automation techniques that leverage the vast amount of data available in the forestry sector. More information about MDF can be found at www.mistradigitalforest.se/.
You should have a doctoral degree in forest planning, mathematics or forest management with a keen interest in forestry issues and forest planning. Experience in working with optimization methods, heuristic methods, and computer-based decision support systems in general, and the Heureka system in particular, is a merit. Significant importance is placed on personal qualities such as analytical and problem-solving skills, the ability to work independently and collaboratively. Good proficiency in written and spoken English is a requirement. As postdoctoral appointments are career-developing positions for junior researchers, we are primarily looking for candidates with a doctoral degree that is three years old at most.
