PhD Studentship in Human Geography – Environment and Development (55% for 3 years)

Spread the love

The Development Geography and Environmental Governance Research Group in the Department of Geography at the University of Bonn is seeking to recruit a doctoral candidate in human geography, in the area of environment and development, as soon as possible for a period of three years.  

The research group led by Prof. Jessica Budds explores processes of socio-ecological change and how they shape the lives, livelihoods, landscapes, and identities of local people, primarily in the Global South. Through a broadly-defined political ecology approach, we are particularly interested in understanding how socio-ecological change is shaped by political and/or economic power relations at different spatial and temporal scales, as well as how the forms that socio-ecological change takes may consolidate existing power structures and discourses. 

We invite applications grounded in critical perspectives to nature-society relations to contribute to the work of the group in the following areas:

  • Neoliberalism and nature
  • Environmental governance
  • Water security and hydrosocial relations
  • Extractive industries
  • Urban infrastructure, risk and resilience
  • Green economy and adaptation to climate change 

Proposals to conduct theoretical and field-based work are equally welcome. Regional foci of particular interest are South America and East Africa.
