The Centre for Environmental and Climate Research, CEC (http://www.cec.lu.se) conducts research, education and communication on environmental science and climate research at Lund University.

These are four-year PhD projects in Environmental Science located within an attractive interdisciplinary research environment at the Centre for Environmental and Climate Research (CEC), at Lund University. Today, CEC has around twenty graduate students with opportunities for collaboration with research groups across Europe. CEC also hosts two PhD schools that are available to PhD students in environmental science.

Job assignments
We are looking for two highly motivated PhD students to join the ecological-economic modelling group at CEC. As part of this group you will be working with pressing societal issues related to agriculture, biodiversity, ecosystem services and climate change. Specifically you will work in a multi-disciplinary environment to develop and apply ecological-economic models. Ultimately, we aim to develop research and models that can inform policy making for achieving Swedish and global sustainability goals.

The PhD projects will focus on two topics a) the economic and environmental impacts of increasing biomass production from agricultural land to meet increasing demand for food and bioenergy, and b) analyzing the potential for ecological intensification of agriculture to balance future food production with environmental goals. The PhD positions will be linked to the FORMAS-funded project Land4biomass, an interdisciplinary research project focusing on the production potential of agricultural biomass and policy instruments to promote a fossil-free society while meeting food production and environmental objectives. Also connected to the project is “Balancing agriculture, conservation and environmental quality: tools for evaluating policy responses” financed by the strategic research environment Biodiversity and Ecosystem services in a Changing Climate (BECC).

Both projects have a common methodology, as ecological-economic modelling based on mathematical programming. Consequently, the positions use quantitative analysis, solving mathematical problems, programming and linking economic and ecological knowledge. Both projects will involve modelling of environmental impacts in collaboration with natural scientists: the first with a focus on GHG emissions, and the second on biodiversity and water pollution. Considerable opportunities for collaboration and mutual modelling support will exist between the two projects.

Eligibility/Entry Requirements

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is regularly ranked as one of the world’s top 100 higher education institutions. The University has 40 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

The Faculty of Social Sciences is one of Sweden’s leading centres of knowledge for research and education in the social and behavioural sciences, with activities in both Lund and Helsingborg. The Department of Service Management and Service Studies is located in Campus Helsingborg.

The department conducts education and research to understand, problematise and contribute to the development of services and the service society. Critical societal perspectives are of particular importance to the department’s education and research. Teaching staff and researchers at the department represent different disciplinary fields and perspectives, such as service studies, ethnology, sociology, human geography, human ecology, environmental strategy and business administration, which combine to form the basis for our interdisciplinary education and research.

Our study programmes provide students with specific knowledge of services and their conditions and development in organisations and in society. The study programmes apply several different scholarly approaches to services, including social, economic, environmental, ethical, historical, spatial and cultural perspectives. Our teaching staff are also interested in developing teaching methods and tools to facilitate students’ learning.

Service Studies

Service Studies is a young and interdisciplinary research field focusing on investigating and problematising services. At the Department of Service Management and Service Studies, we examine services from a sustainable, economic, cultural and social perspective, moving between public and private service production. Service Studies is a subject which not only interrogates the service society on the basis of intellectual premises, but also identifies and problematises concrete issues defined by the sectors and organisations we study and collaborate with. The research is organised into five broad themes: consumption and retail, sustainability and services, organisation, management and service work, welfare services in the welfare society, and tourism and hospitality.

Sustainability

Sustainability research is a profile area at the department that we want to reinforce. The research proposed in the application should have a clear link to sustainability. The application can usefully relate to areas in which the department is prominent such as the sustainable production and consumption of food, the circular economy, waste management services, mobility, fashion, tourism and sustainability, sustainable cities and services and digitisation from a sustainability perspective. However, it is also possible to suggest other sustainability themes.

Clouds containing ice at sub-zero temperatures cover wide areas of the globe. Their phase changes during global warming have been predicted to influence climate change.  Their severe weather, in the form of hail or freezing rain on the ground or on air, causes much damage.

Initiation of ice inside clouds is crucial because the numbers of crystals in clouds control the production of snow, freezing rain, graupel and hail. Initiation of ice affects the latent heating and dynamics of clouds.  However, there is much uncertainty about ice initiation.

Jobbassignment
The work will involve numerical modeling. Lab observations from a partner institution of a new process of fragmentation of ice will be represented. The role of the process will be assessed for individual clouds with our aerosol-cloud models. After validation of the simulations, various analyses will be performed for four basic cloud-types. This will involve coding with FORTRAN 90 in a UNIX environment.

Doctoral student in Service Studies, spec Cultural and Creativity

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is regularly ranked as one of the world’s top 100 higher education institutions. The University has 40 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

The Faculty of Social Sciences is one of Sweden’s leading centres of knowledge for research and education in the social and behavioural sciences, with activities in both Lund and Helsingborg. The Department of Service Management and Service Studies is located in Campus Helsingborg.

The department conducts education and research to understand, problematise and contribute to the development of services and the service society. Critical societal perspectives are of particular importance to the department’s education and research. Teaching staff and researchers at the department represent different disciplinary fields and perspectives, such as service studies, ethnology, sociology, human geography, human ecology, environmental strategy and business administration, which combine to form the basis for our interdisciplinary education and research.

Our study programmes provide students with specific knowledge of services and their conditions and development in organisations and in society. The study programmes apply several different scholarly approaches to services, including social, economic, environmental, ethical, historical, spatial and cultural perspectives. Our teaching staff are also interested in developing teaching methods and tools to facilitate students’ learning.

Service Studies

Service Studies is a young and interdisciplinary research field focusing on investigating and problematising services. At the Department of Service Management and Service Studies, we examine services from a sustainable, economic, cultural and social perspective, moving between public and private service production. Service Studies is a subject which not only interrogates the service society on the basis of intellectual premises, but also identifies and problematises concrete issues defined by the sectors and organisations we study and collaborate with. The research is organised into five broad themes: consumption and retail, sustainability and services, organisation, management and service work, welfare services in the welfare society, and tourism and hospitality.

Cultural and Creativity Management

The department conducts research in cultural and creative activities from several perspectives, and we now aim to further reinforce this profile. The research proposed in the application should have a clear connection to a service studies perspective on cultural and creative activities. This may entail a focus on the development of services or governance, organisation and management within cultural and creative activities, consumption of this type of services, system-oriented perspectives on the field, the conditions of work within this type of activities, or other relevant issues. It is also possible to propose other research themes of relevance to service studies.

Duties

The PhD programme consists of 240 credits (equivalent to four years of full-time studies) and is concluded with the public defence of a doctoral thesis. The appointed doctoral student will receive a salary from the University during four years, and his or her main obligation is to complete their PhD studies, which primarily includes an independently written doctoral thesis. The position may involve departmental duties, mainly in the form of teaching, up to 20 per cent of fulltime working hours, in which case the appointment will be extended by the equivalent number of hours. The terms of employment for doctoral students are regulated in the Swedish Higher Education ordinance, Chapter 5, Sections 1-7.

The doctoral student is expected to be present and actively participate in the research environment in the department. The doctoral studentship will commence on 1 September 2019 or according to agreement. The general syllabus and other information about the PhD programme in Service Studies is available at http://www.ism.lu.se/en/research/phd-studies
