Phd candidate

The position is part of the larger interdisciplinary ‘Sinergia’ project „Deliberative diets: Connecting producers and consumers to value the sustainability of Swiss food system scenarios“. You assess selected valuation methods for agricultural ecosystem services (e.g., choice experiments), and apply them in a Swiss-wide representative survey.

You hold a master’s degree in environmental-, agricultural-, resource economics or a related field, and are interested in survey experiments and the respective analytical methods. In the project you will closely collaborate with PhDs and Postdocs at WSL, at the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL) and at the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE) at the University of Bern. You have excellent written and oral communication skills in German and English. You are highly motivated, have an independent and team-oriented working style, and take pleasure in working in an interdisciplinary, intercultural, and practice-oriented research environment. Experience in the field of food markets and supply chains, and a good working knowledge of a further Swiss national language, beside German, are desirable.

Please send your complete application to Jeanine Gehrig, Human Resources WSL, by uploading the requested documents through our webpage. Applications via email will not be considered. Prof. Roland Olschewski (roland.olschewski@wsl.ch, +41 (0)44 739 25 62) will be happy to answer any questions or offer further information. Application deadline is the 15th December 2022. The WSL strives to increase the proportion of women in its employment, which is why qualified women are particularly called upon to apply for this position.
