Stillingsbeskrivelse

About the position

Faculty of Environmental Sciences and Natural Resource Management (MINA) at Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) has a vacant 3-year PhD–position related to economically oriented but multidisciplinary analysis of the topic “Norwegian and the EU forests and forest sector in the sustainable circular bioeconomy”.

Forestry and the forest-based sector in Norway and the EU are not immune to global challenges: demand for alternative uses of biomass and land is intensifying and finding a balance among often conflicting uses is not trivial. The question of how Norwegian and European forests can contribute to the development of a bioeconomy, while accounting for important sustainability issues, particularly climate change mitigation and safeguarding biodiversity, is the central theme of this Ph.D. project.

The project explores the challenges, possibilities, and consequences that international and national policies and the many demands for forest land and biomass pose to the forestry sector in Norway and in the EU. The project provides policy-relevant new knowledge on these questions based on model-aided scenario analyses. The project also improves and appends existing tools (forest sector and forestry models) for analysing the forest product market development and the alternative uses of forests and wood resources.

The applicant is made aware that an application for a PhD position at NMBU is at the same time an application for admission to a PhD programme at the institution. The documentation that is necessary to ensure that the admission requirements are met must be uploaded as an attachment.
