PhD and Assistant Professor positions at PAP

Our Public Administration and Policy Group is looking for candidates for two new positions:

(1) PhD position on the framing and governance of climate adaptation

As announced informally earlier on this blog, the Public Administration and Policy Group at Wageningen University now offers a position for a 4-year PhD project on “Making sense of climate impacts: understanding and dealing with the variety of climate change frames in governance processes”.

The project is part of the broader Knowledge for Climate programme on the governance of climate adaptation, carried out by five Dutch and three international universities. The aim of the research is to understand the variety of perspectives or frames on climate change and to develop ways of dealing with controversies in governance processes for climate adaptation. In these processes, governmental, societal and business actors try to implement adaptation strategies that can protect vulnerable Dutch regions (or 'hotspots') from the impacts of climate change. Fluency in Dutch is required for this position.

More information on the "Governance of climate adaptation" consortium programme can be found here and here. More information about the PhD project can be found here.
