JOB DESCRIPTION

Title:

PhD Scholarship: Managing Ecosystem Services in a Highly Connected World

Advertiser:

University of Queensland

Location:

Brisbane, Queensland

Salary etc:

This PhD project comes with a fully funded PhD scholarship as part of an ARC Future Fellowship Project

Are you are interested in using multidisciplinary science to solve global sustainability problems? If so, this may be the PhD project for you.

This exciting project will use conceptual and mathematical models to develop new knowledge of how landscape change and climate change affect the benefits people obtain from nature (known as ecosystem services).

The benefits people get from nature are enormous. Yet, these benefits are under threat from rapid land use change and climate change. At the same time, where ecosystem services are produced and where they benefit people can be vastly different, especially in a world that is highly connected through trade, movement of people, and flows of information.

The successful candidate for this PhD project will work on characterising global flows of ecosystem services and integrating these with models of land use change and climate change. They will then assess how they interact to drive ecosystem service outcomes.

This project is part of a larger Australian Research Council Future Fellowship Project and will provide the successful candidate the opportunity to work with some of the world’s leading ecosystem service scientists. This project will suit applicants with a passionate interest in sustainability science and a strong mathematical, statistical, or modelling background.
