Junior Research Groups

Hauptinhalt der Seite
​​​Tractor on field

​By winning a grant for a junior research group, their leaders demonstrate their high potential for a scientific career. Leading a junior research group offers a special opportunity to develop scientific independence at an early stage, to develop one’s own scientific profile and to gain competence and experience in leadership. Therefore, ZALF offers start-up grants to support the proposal writing for a junior research group for promising early career researchers. The development of competencies for group leadership, supervision or teaching is also supported. At ZALF, independent junior research groups can in principle be located within working groups or be established directly as a ZALF separate working group - depending on the individual case and agreements.

 

The following junior research groups are active at ZALF:​

​Dr. Sandra Uthes & Dr. Jana Zscheischler

The BMBF junior research group “BioKum - Cumulative Effects of Bioeconomic Strategies for a More Sustainable Agriculture” uses the example of nutrient surpluses in agriculture to investigate the complex relationships, opportunities, but also risks and conflicts of bioeconomic transformation processes. he aim is to understand the cumulative effects of circular farm-level innovations using the example of four case study regions and to show possible transformation paths for a more sustainable agriculture. The groups applies an inter- and transdisciplinary research approach that combines bioeconomic modelling and methods of transformative sustainability research.

Conflicts between humans and animals in agricultural landscapes

Dr. Hannes König​

The use of agricultural landscapes and the provision of ecosystem services are influenced by dynamic drivers such as policies, markets, climate change and, increasingly, also wildlife. In particular, cropping-, grassland- and land-based livestock systems are increasingly subject to interactions with wildlife, which can lead to crop damages, livestock losses, or pathogen transmission, among other impacts; and thus increase the risk of agricultural production losses. We develop integrated impact assessment methods to identify and evaluate suitable policy instruments or best-practice management strategies towards the sustainability and coexistence between people and wildlife. Inter- and transdisciplinary formats are used to capture human-environment systems in a holistic manner and to translate evidence-based findings into decision support.
