The Chair of Computational Landscape Ecology investigates the effects of changes in land use and landscape structure on biodiversity, ecosystem functions and services. For this purpose, we combine a wide range of methods such as field studies, ecological and biogeographical modelling, remote sensing, applied (geo)statistics and Machine/Deep Learning. Our research aims at a better understanding and improved modelling of basic relationships between landscape patterns and processes, but is also closely related to applied questions of resource management and nature conservation. We are looking forward to new colleagues who would like to contribute their own ideas and initiatives to research and teaching and who enjoy working in an open-minded, international and creative team.
