Subject description

Formulation of sustainable forest policies requires solid understanding of environmental and economic impacts of alternative forest management. This postdoc will join efforts in the ForestPath project to investigate how to balance biodiversity, climate, social values and economy as affected by forest management and policy. The postdoc will focus on predicting consequences for biodiversity of alternative forestry practices and assist in tracing them to underlying policy changes. This requires development of robust ways to relate biodiversity to forest structures that are affected by decisions on both how production forest is managed and to what extent areas are excluded from forestry. To this end, existing data will be used to develop models able to predict how management and policy options impact biodiversity in Swedish forests.

Work duties

The main duties involved in a post-doctoral posistion is to conduct research. Teaching may also be included, but up to no more than 20% of working hours. The position shall include the opportunity for three weeks of training in higher education teaching and learning.

The successful candidate will develop, parameterise, and validate models relating biodiversity of birds and plants to forest structures affected by forest management. Statistical methods such as Joint Species Distribution Modelling and other types of hierarchical models will be used to relate existing and new species datasets to spatially overlapping habitat and land cover data. Within the project, these models will be i) integrated with forest ecosystem and management planning models able to project future forest structure under scenarios of alternative management, and ii) combined with comparative analysis to evaluate the effects of forest policy interventions.

The work will be carried out with an interdisciplinary project team with expertise in ecology, biodiversity science, mechanistic modelling and more. The postdoc is expected to present results at international conferences, produce high quality scientific papers, and play a role in disseminating the results.

Subject description and Work duties

The main duties involved in a post-doctoral position is to conduct research. Teaching may also be included, but up to no more than 20% of working hours. The position shall include the opportunity for three weeks of training in higher education teaching and learning.

This postdoctoral fellow will work in an interdisciplinary project at the Center for Environmental and Climate Science. Within the project, a conceptual framework is being developed for how nature-based solutions can generate synergies and mitigate conflicts between biodiversity conservation, climate action, public health and human well-being. As the framework is developed by an interdisciplinary team, it builds on knowledge of biodiversity, ecological processes, environmental psychology, and epidemiology. A central part of the work is to systematically map existing evidence for how trade-offs and synergies between climate benefit, biodiversity and health can be affected by nature-based solutions. The focus is on the extent to which there are mechanistic connections, e.g. in that biodiversity affects the resilience of ecosystems to climate change, and to what extent there are indirect associations, e.g. in that the structure of ecosystems affects both diversity and climate. Empirical or model-based analyzes will be used to investigate how the design and/or spatial placement of nature-based solutions affects synergies and conflicts between biodiversity conservation and other purposes of nature-based solutions, such as carbon sequestration.

Qualification requirements

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top universities. The University has around 45 000 students and more than 8 000 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

Lund University welcomes applicants with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We regard gender equality and diversity as a strength and an asset.

Lund University School of Economics and Management is one of eight faculties within Lund University. More than 4 000 students and 450 researchers, teachers and other staff are engaged here in training and research in economic history, business administration, business law, informatics, economics, statistics and research policy.


Lund University School of Economics and Management is accredited by the three largest and most influential accreditation institutes for business schools: EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB. Only just over 100 business schools in the world have achieved this prestigious Triple Crown accreditation.

Postdoctoral fellow in Economic History

The department of economic history is hiring a Postdoctoral Fellow in the research program ‘The legacy of a settler colony: Quantitative panel studies of the political economy of the Cape Colony’. The program is funded by the The Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation and will run to the end of 2026. It currently employs 13 researchers based in Sweden, South Africa, The Netherlands, and USA and 5 research assistants based in South Africa.

Associate professor Erik Green leads the program. The main objective of the research project is to to contribute to the large literature on colonialism and global inequality by – for the first time – using big data and machine learning techniques to analyze the roots and gradual development of a settler economy - the Cape Colony - its institutions and their impact on growth, inequality, and welfare over time and space.

Description of the workplace
The Cardiovascular research - Translational studies is studying cardiovascular disease with a focus on biological differences that underlie acute complications such as heart attacks and strokes. The research is translational and includes studies of human tissue and several in-vitro models. The group has for many years been at the forefront of the field and has established collaborations with several international research groups.

The group, led by professor Isabel Goncalves and associate professor Andreas Edsfeldt, consists of postdocs, doctoral students, bioinformatics and laboratory engineers with both clinical and preclinical backgrounds. The group is located at CRC in Malmö.

We are promoting a broad cooperation between our group members and other groups in the same research environment. We are supporting the younger members of our team in their efforts to establish themselves as independent researchers. You can read more about our research on our website.

Work duties and responsibilities
We are looking for a motivated Postdoctoral research fellow for a for a unique world-class project that aims to reveal biological changes underlying atherosclerotic complications, the most common cause death globally. Parts of the project also specifically target diseases closely linked to atherosclerosis such as diabetes.

The project is based on a world-unique human tissue biobank with a large amount of samples of atherosclerotic plaques, where we study difference in biological processes, such as metabolic patterns, cell phenotypes, inflammation and extracellular matrix, which could cause acute atherosclerotic complications, as well as other large human cohorts (that have imaging, RNA seq, GWAS and clinical follow up data). Studies based on the project have generated several high impact publications (e.g. European Heart Journal, JACC, Circulation). The project also includes close collaborations with other strong groups in internationally well-known environments (e.g. Oxford, Amsterdam and Mayo Clinic USA).

The position offers a great opportunity to be involved in a project with high potential for future clinical applicability.

The group consists of 15 people (including nurses, biomedical researchers, fellows, postdocs and PhD students) and is part of the Lund University Diabetes Center (LUDC) where there is a great interest in cardiovascular complications of diabetes. Due to the growing amount of data and possible targets generated by the group, the postdoc will be essential in independent target validation and data analyses. You are expected to independently design and perform experiments, supervise junior members, run statistical analyses, interpret the data and present the results in publications and at international meetings.

The candidate should be knowledgeable in genomics and/or machine learning. The successful candidate will be responsible for developing and implementing bioinformatics pipelines and tools to advance research projects.
