The University of Kassel is establishing a unique interdisciplinary centre in the field of Sustainable Development and Transformation. The centre will bring together top global research and teaching expertise across the entire thematic range of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as defined by the United Nations. The centre aims to become a significant force in developing solutions to inspire and enable social transformations through scholarly research, effective networking and dedicated teaching.

We are currently looking for four senior scholars with outstanding credentials working in the broad areas of nature, technology, culture, and society. As directors of the new centre, this core group will shape and oversee its further development in the coming years, including definition of research priorities, development of international networks and hiring of additional team members. Focus of the four positions will be as follows:
  • Nature: Human-environment interactions
  • Technology: Sustainable technology design
  • Culture: Cultures of sustainability
  • Society: Transformations to sustainable societies / Just Transitions

As an innovative and progressive educational institution with 25,000 students located in central Germany, the University of Kassel is undertaking a worldwide search for candidates to staff this new institution.
