Vacancy: Research fellow on small-town climate change adaptation with 75% (conditionally upon allowance) in TV-L 13, limited to 30.11.2023, ID: FFUGoIngVis

News from Oct 28, 2021

As a result of the research and development phase of the associate project 'GoIngVis - "Keep cool in hot times": How governance through integrative visions (GoIngVis) can assist towns on their way towards heat resilience' 2 exemplary small town climate change adaptation processes were designed. The aim was to mobilize citizens for joint adaptation action. The implementing partners Boizenburg/Elbe (in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern) and the transition centre Brikettfabrik Louise (in Brandenburg) therefore developed two intermediary platforms for civil society and public administration, and initiated diverse activities.

Now the project association is facing a two-year implementation and consolidation phase. The goal is to long-term preserve the results locally and transfer the governance approach on climate change adaptation to further small towns.

The research fellow will support the project manager with the coordination and scientific supervision of a transfer network "small towns in climate change". The tasks will include the establishment and coordination of a small towns network on the topic of climate change adaptation, the communication of the GoIngVis model approaches within the network, and an evaluation of the significance of model towns for climate change adaptation.
