Postdoc position: Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning 734 views

The Plant Ecology group of the Institute for Water and Wetland Research at Radboud University is inviting application for a Postdoctoral Researcher in Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning.

About the position:
  • A postdoctoral researcher to work on a sustainable food system project.
  • The selected candidate will focus on the impact of food production systems on biodiversity and investigate to what extent food production systems profit from the services provided by natural ecosystems.
  • The selected candidate will gather information on these relationships from the literature, as well as from actual experiments and measurements in ongoing initiatives such as the Deltaplan Living Labs.
  • The postdoctor will work closely together with another postdoctoral researcher (based at Leiden University) focussing on the effects of different production systems on carbon and nutrient balances and soil and water quality.
  • Questions to be addressed include: What are the net effects on biodiversity of land-sparing versus land-sharing scenarios? What measurable services can biodiversity provide in nature-inclusive agriculture? What effects does a more circular production system have on biodiversity?


  • PhD in Ecology, on a relevant topic in the field of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
  • Proven interest in biodiversity in rural areas and the driving forces responsible for decline and recovery.
  • Experience with empirical research methods by which the vitality of ecosystems can be assessed.
