Postdoc Position

Postdoctoral Researcher in Agricultural Economics

The Chair of International Food Economics and Rural Development of the University of Göttingen (Germany) is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to join the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 990 “Ecological and Socioeconomic Functions of Tropical Lowland Rainforest Transformation Systems (Sumatra, Indonesia)”, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The position is available from 1 September 2017 (or earlier). The contract will initially be issued until 31 December 2019, but can be renewed for additional four years when the next funding phase is approved. The salary is in accordance with the German public service salary scale (TVL-E13) with 100% of the regular working hours.

The research focuses on analyzing socioeconomic drivers of land-use changes in Sumatra, especially the rapid expansion of oil palm plantations. Moreover, impacts of land-use changes on the livelihoods of local farm households and sustainable rural development are analyzed. In terms of methodologies, econometric approaches with household and village-level panel data are used. The postdoc is expected to contribute to interdisciplinary research papers and ideas within the CRC. The position is based in Göttingen (Germany), but will require traveling to Indonesia for data collection and exchange with collaborators. Further details about the project can be found on the CRC website. The postdoc will be part of the CRC project C07.
