We look for an enthusiastic researcher to assist the IMAGE land team in data analysis and scenario studies.
The IMAGE model is a key instrument of PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency for scenario analyses of global environmental change in relation to future development of consumption and production of food and energy (www.pbl.nl/image). Regarding food, model research focuses on the agricultural system and land-use, land-based mitigation, nutrients and biodiversity. The model assesses the development of trend scenarios, but also explores response options to achieve global food security and prevent climate change while preserving biodiversity.
We are looking for a highly motivated researcher contributing to application of IMAGE’s modelling of the agricultural and land-use system. The ideal candidate has strong analytical skills and enjoys working in a team. The position is available for 4 years, as a part-time function, to assist the IMAGE team in ongoing projects. We hope to find an individual, who favors to work on a part-time basis, in an inspiring and high-level working environment. Specifically, the researcher will contribute to scenario studies, data analysis, publications and possibly project management in the context of food and agricultural systems, land-based greenhouse gas mitigation, climate change and biodiversity protection.
For this you will work together with other researchers of the IMAGE model team, and with partners in The Hague and Wageningen (WUR), and Potsdam (PIK). You will contribute to publish work both in PBL reports and peer reviewed journals.
