As part of an innovative ERC-funded research project on Nature-based solutions, Professor Assaf Shwartz is looking for a postdoc and two Ph.D. students to join the Human and Biodiversity (HUB) lab at the Technion Institute of Technology (Israel). The project Niche4NbS will develop a new methodology to plan Nature-based solutions that maximize social and ecological benefits. It will use nature dose-response experiments and large-scale ecological surveys to establish the functional relationships between different types of nature-based solutions and well-being measures and adapt niche modelling tools to jointly map social and ecological outcomes. The work will thus contribute to bridge the gaps between ecology and social sciences and to develop the theoretical bases of new approaches to sustainable urban planning.

We are looking for highly motivated and creative thinkers, with a strong quantitative and analytical background who are interested in addressing the human dimension in conservation science. We are seeking for:

– Postdoc with background and proven expertise in environmental psychology, public health or related fields (more details can be found here).

– Ph.D. student with interest and background in social sciences, notably environmental psychology, public health or related fields. (more details can be found here).

– Ph.D. student with interest and background in quantitative landscape ecology and conservation planning (more details can be found here)

The positions will start from spring 2021, or as soon as possible hereafter. Salary and benefits are competitive and consistent with the Technion policy and applicant experience. Application deadline is mid-January 2021. Review of applications will begin on 1st of January and continue until the position is filled.
