Are you the promising researcher who will support public and private policy makers on how to quantitatively integrate use of green and blue landscapes for food production, nature and biodiversity?
We are looking for a talented colleague with a market- and customer-oriented attitude and a great affinity for applied scientific research. Experience in conducting research projects involving the economic valuation of green and blue landscape use, nature-inclusive food production and monetising societal valuation of biodiversity and landscapes is a must. You should have the capability and the ambition to develop and lead projects in that field. Your most important activities in doing so will be:
Conducting research activities, including quantitative projects on economic valuation of green and blue landscape use with an emphasis on societal cost-benefit analyses and micro-economic simulations.
Working in project teams that vary in size and complexity. These may vary from a few colleagues at Wageningen Economic Research to larger teams consisting of researchers from different organisations. An example of this would be other organisational divisions such as Wageningen Environmental Research, but also PBL and international consortia.
Maintaining regular contact with your clients, whereby you proactively and sufficiently adapt to their wishes and needs. Clients include the Ministries of LNV and I&W, PBL, provinces and water boards, the European Commission (incl. H2020) and non-governmental organisations.
Contributing to the acquisition of new research projects, including from your active network in nature economics as well as actively contributing to knowledge development and method/product innovation. We have seven expertise groups at Wageningen Economic Research. You will be working in the expertise group Green Economy and Land Use. The expertise group is focused on the economic perspective and sustainable development of green and blue growth via integral explorations, cost-benefit analyses, evaluation methods, and business models.
Place of employment is Wageningen.
