The mission of the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) as a nationally and internationally active research institute is to deliver solutions for an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable agriculture – together with society. ZALF is a member of the Leibniz Association and is located in Müncheberg (approx. 35 minutes by regional train from Berlin-Lichtenberg). The institute also maintains locations in Dedelow and Paulinenaue.
The working group Sustainable Land Use in Developing Countries (SusLAND) focusses on the analysis of land use and landscape systems in emerging and developing countries. Based on the analyses, interdisciplinary research methods are used to develop strategies to mitigate complex problems of farming systems in developing countries at local, regional and global scales. Emphasis is placed on questions regarding the avoidance of land use conflicts, the improved adaptation to climate change, food and nutrition security, and the stabilization of the livelihood of family farms. At SUSLAND group, the Climber project aims to transform the climate adaptation capacity of food, land, and water systems in six countries: Guatemala, Kenya, Morocco, the Philippines, Senegal, and Zambia, ultimately increasing the resilience of smallholder production systems to withstand severe climate change effects like drought, flooding, and high temperatures.
We are offering part time position temporarily limited until March 31, 2024 at our location in Müncheberg as Research assistant on gender and climate security (f/m/d).
