lecturer (tenure track) Environmental Economics

The research group Environmental Economics focuses on research towards sustainable behavior and technologies. Environmental issues are analyzed by extending neoclassical economic tools. The research group employs economic as well as interdisciplinary research methods for the integrated valuation of ecosystem services and for sustainability analysis of clean technologies.
The complexity of environmental issues requires multidisciplinarity and the research group is therefore part of the Centre for Environmental Sciences (CMK), where it works with researchers from biology, ecology, biomedicine, chemistry and law. CMK and the research group have extensive national and international collaborations.
