The candidate must undertake a doctoral thesis in Environmental Sciences and Management, with a research focus in a field of research related to environmental issues by mobilizing methodologies derived from scientific approaches. The thesis will be carried out under the supervision of an academic member of the research group SONYA (organized by Pr. Marie MANCILLA GARCIA, Tom BAULER and Wouter ACHTEN) of the Institute for Environmental Management and Regional Planning.
SONYA is a research center bringing together different perspectives on the links between society and the environment. Our work contributes to empirical and fundamental research on socio-environmental dynamics and to a transformation towards a sustainable society, through education and participation in societal debates. We use a wide range of methods (both quantitative and qualitative), approach environmental issues from a systemic / holistic perspective that combines micro and macro, and we particularly focus on environmental governance, transitions to just and sustainable societies , environmental mobilizations, life cycle analysis, environmental impact assessment, and ecological economics. We seek to create a reflective, open and supportive environment within the University, promoting decent and collaborative work.
Just like the other assistants, the candidate participates in the supervision of practical work, seminars, personal work and excursions linked to a series of courses of the Master program in Environmental Sciences and Management (http: //igeat.ulb. ac.be/fr/ Informations), specialisation ‘Management’. Supervision activities are linked to learning a research approach (eg preparation for the final dissertation) and in learning interdisciplinarity. The candidate becomes part of a multidisciplinary team of assistants with profiles complementary to his own, and the distribution of supervisory work is done in particular according to the skills of each.
The candidate will contribute to the supervision of the following courses and educational activities (list can be adjusted according to the candidate's profile and distributed between the two assistants):
Main Research Field : 16. Environmental Sciences
