Land-use change is caused by multiple drivers acting on multiple scales. While some causes of land change may be identified on the local scale, others may act on the regional or continental level. Additionally, land change often results from telecoupling between distant socio-ecological systems. The goal of this PhD is to identify the drivers of land change in a selected region with a specific focus on agriculture. A successful candidate should be fluent in English and has a passion for land-use modelling, remote sensing, and exploring the causalities of processes shaping the landscape. This PhD position offers a great way to join international research projects.
