W3 Professorship in Forest policy and land-use governance (f/m/d) // 26 October 2023The Faculty of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology at the University of Göttingen is seeking to fill a permanent professorship with civil servant status (grade W3 NBesO) at the earliest possible date: W3 Professorship in Forest policy and land-use governance (f/m/d). The professorship represents the field of forest policy in its entire breadth with a strong focus on land-use governance in research and teaching. Research should focus on the analysis of international and national forest and land use policies, their processes and strategies, and their mutual interdependencies. Ideally, the professorship thus contributes to the development of political solution strategies for the protection of forests and sustainable land use. The professorship is expected to establish close collaborations with other departments of the faculty and the university and to actively participate in existing research projects and the establishment of new ones. The professorship shall substantially strengthen the faculty foci on "Sustainable Forestry and Global Change" and "Utilization of Forests and Forest Products". Methodologically, the focus should be on empirical social science approaches. The Faculty is looking for a team player and dedicated person with demonstrated expertise in policy field analysis of international and national forestry, analysis of international land use-related governance systems and processes, trans-sectoral forest-related policy analysis of nature conservation, climate change mitigation, or regional development, and analysis of forest-related development cooperation.
