Wageningen University & Research (WUR)
Do you have a PhD and experience with interdisciplinary and international environmental science education? Are you familiar with challenge-based education, supervising multidisciplinar and international students and groups, and developing and improving courses? Then you may be the new colleague we are looking for!
The Environmental Systems Analysis (ESA) group offers an exciting lecturer position. The new lecturer will teach, supervise groups and support developing ESA’s education.
Our group plays a key role in the study programmes ‘Environmental Sciences’, ‘Urban Environmental Management’ and ‘Climate Studies’. We teach and study environmental problems by exploring, modelling and communicating their causes, mechanisms, effects and potential solutions. Quantitative, qualitative and multi-, and transdisciplinary approaches are combined, and knowledge from natural, social and engineering sciences is integrated. We take a system-analysis approach and develop and apply tools for analysing socio-ecological environmental problems. We currently identify two research lines: Pollution & Nutrients (e.g. causes and impacts of pollution, climate change and nutrient fluxes) and Ecosystem Services & Biodiversity (e.g. quantification and valuation of ecosystem functions and services). Uncertainties, integrating dimensions and scales, and policy relevance are always explicitly addressed.
The lecturer is expected to contribute significantly to the international profile of the ESA group. The lecturer will engage in coordinating and teaching ESA’s BSc and/or MSc courses, and supervise BSc and MSc thesis students. To complement and strengthen our team, we like to hire a candidate who has experience with challenge-based education, supervising multidisciplinar and international students and groups, and developing and improving courses and exams. Our ideal candidate combines a background in environmental science and a passion for innovative teaching and learning methods.
