Junior Professorship for Modeling of Social-Ecological Systems with a Focus on Forests

Adapting forests and forestry to climate change is an enormous challenge for forestry companies and society, both in Germany and in many parts of the world. These necessary adaptations can only succeed if we understand both the effects of climate change on our forest ecosystems and the complex functional relationships between forests and society, as well as the role that technologies, markets and regulations play in this.

The Eva Mayr-Stihl Foundation is therefore funding a junior research group "Social-Ecological Modeling" as part of the Cluster of Excellence initiative "Future Forests" at the Faculty of Environment and Natural Resources, University of Freiburg with 1.31 million euros. This research group is to be headed by a junior professorship, which is currently being advertised (see PDF download).
