(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: POSTDOC IN KNOWLEDGE CO-PRODUCTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE & INSTITUTIONAL INNOVATION
Climate change and associated contemporary societal problems call for innovative and creative solutions that challenge dominant knowledge production practices and traditional role divisions on the science-policy-society interface. To develop the innovative and creative solutions required, new modes of transdisciplinary, action-oriented research are needed that can inform societal change and innovative governance, including new collaborations and cross-overs between currently divided policy domains. However, professionals working in research performing organizations often have difficulty in stepping away from existing routines and methodological preferences. What today’s problems need, is constructive and integrative action to instigate learning and transformation, fueled by the active creation of trust among a variety of actors, and actively engaging these in processes of knowledge co-production.

About The Vrije University Amsterdam, Netherlands –Official Website
The Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is a public research university in Amsterdam, Netherlands, founded in 1880, and consistently ranks among the top 150 universities in the world by major ranking tables. The VU is one of two large, publicly funded research universities in the city, the other being the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The literal translation of the Dutch name Vrije Universiteit is “Free University”. “Free” refers to independence of the university from both the State and the Dutch Reformed Church. Both within and outside the university, the institution is commonly referred to as “the VU”. Although founded as a private institution, the VU has received government funding on a parity basis with public universities since 1970. The university is located on a compact urban campus in the southern Buitenveldert neighbourhood of Amsterdam and adjacent to the modern Zuidas business district.
In 2014, the VU had 23,656 registered students, most of whom were full-time students. That year, the university had 2,263 faculty members and researchers, and 1,410 administrative, clerical and technical employees, based on FTE units. The university’s annual endowment for 2014 was circa €480 million. About three quarters of this endowment is government funding; the remainder is made up of tuition fees, research grants, and private funding.
The official university seal is entitled The Virgin in the Garden. Personally chosen by Abraham Kuyper, the Reformed-Protestant leader and founder of the university, it depicts a virgin living in freedom in a garden while pointing towards God, referring to the Protestant Reformation in the Netherlands in the 16th and 17th century. In 1990, the university adopted the mythical griffin as its common emblem.
