The post holder will be responsible for integrative research and teaching duties in the field of
Computational Landscape Ecology at the Faculty of Environmental Sciences. The position is
focused on analyses, diagnosis, model building, and assessment of functions and services at
the landscape scale, and their up-scaling to the supra-regional scale. With respect to
teaching responsibilities, the Chair covers landscape ecology in the geography study
programme, as well as those of the Departments of Hydrosciences and Forest Sciences.
The post holder will also contribute to other Masters programmes taught partially in English,
such as Spatial Planning and Natural Resources Management. Furthermore, the post holder
is expected to take an active part in the curriculum of the Centre for International
Postgraduate Studies of Environmental Management (CIPSEM) of TU Dresden, and in the

of Material Fluxes and of Resources (UNU-FLORES) of the United Nations University).

In addition to relevant professional experience, the successful candidate is expected to
pursue innovative and integrative modelling approaches, designed to simulate and assess
landscape potentials and their dynamics, while taking into account their socio-economical
context. Applicants should be internationally renowned in regard to their publication and
