PhD position summary/title: PHD IN CLIMATE CHANGE & INSTITUTIONAL INNOVATION
Climate change and associated contemporary societal problems call for innovative and creative solutions on a scale that may be at odds with existing administrative divisions in governmental arrangements. Likewise, such solutions may challenge standing divisions between scientific disciplines and proven methodological traditions. To develop the innovative and creative solutions required, new modes of collaborative governance and transdisciplinary, action-oriented research are needed. However, professionals working in governments and research performing organizations often have difficulty in stepping away from existing routines and task perceptions. What today’s problems need, is constructive and integrative action to instigate learning and transformation, fueled by the active creation of trust among actors, and actively engaging these in the process (think for instance of policy makers, researchers, farmers, and citizens).

PhD position summary/title: PHD: MODELLING SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGES DUE TO CLIMATE CHANGE AND EXTREME FLOODS AND DROUGHTS
This research will focus on studying these human-natural feedbacks under a multi risk approach and by considering adaptation dynamics of water managers under both floods and droughts. This is done with a novel large-scale coupled hydrological and agent-based model. This model not only allows to simulate impacts of changes in the hydrological system on societies, but also to assess how society can reduce these impacts by implementing adaptation measures to reduce the impacts from floods and droughts. Several studies have examined the interplay between the behaviour of individuals and the environment using agent-based models, but only at the small scale. In contrast, the model applied here, can be used to study up- and downstream interlinkages in large river basins.
Deadline : 19 June 2022

PhD position summary/title: PHD: MODELLING COASTAL MIGRATION UNDER SEA LEVEL RISE AND ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION
This PhD project is part of the COASTMOVE programme. You study the adaptation behaviour of global coastal residents and other agents, such as governments. You also look at their responses to sea level rise, how they interact, and study the related impacts we mentioned. For this, we are developing a global agent-based model (ABM). This model simulates how sea level rise and related environmental degradation affects the conditions of coastal inhabitants, and if they adapt or move to safer locations.The focus of this project is on the effects of environmental factors related to sea-level rise: coastal flooding, erosion, salt intrusion. But also on other socio-economic and demographic drivers which play an important role in migration processes. In your research, you integrate data on all these drivers (physical and socio-economic) and quantify how they affect migration behaviour between 2020 and 2100.

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.
