About the position


The School of Landscape Architecture at the Faculty of Landscape and Society has a vacant 3-year PhD position related to sustainable urban/peri-urban green space management in a climate change perspective.

We invite applicants to submit study proposals within the research fields of nature–based design or management solutions connected to blue and green infrastructure for sustainable urban/peri-urban landscapes/ecosystems in times of climatic change.
