Rationale
Grasslands in Central Europe strongly contribute to the biodiversity in rural landscapes. Intensive agriculture has a detrimental effect on biodiversity. However, recent research has shown that diversity also has the potential to support grassland production systems by stabilizing or even increasing yields. So far, these findings have hardly been applied or verified in current productive farming systems. In a multidisciplinary approach, agronomic, economic, philosophical and social dimensions of ecological results will be discussed (for details www.biodiversitaet-gesellschaft.uni-goettingen.de).

Requirements
MSc degree in agriculture or biology or related disciplines. Interest in independent and multidisciplinary research. Good knowledge in grassland and vegetation science, knowledge in statistics is desirable.

Scholarship and conditions
Scholarship is 1365 Euro per month. Start date: October 1, 2010. The position is for three years. The doctoral thesis will be done as a series of English manuscripts.
