Kempe Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Kempe Foundation offers postdoctoral fellowships for scholars from Northern Sweden.

The Kempe Foundation ”Kempestiftelserna” in Sweden offers postdoctoral scholarships for from three northernmost Swedish universities:

  • Luleå University of Technology
  • Umeå University
  • Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Umeå

The scholarship aims to support researchers conducting research on topics closely related to IIASA's research agenda. Scholars can spend up to two years at IIASA. The Foundation’s long-term goal to create an inter­­national network that will foster continued cooperation between IIASA and the home institution.

Applications are made directly to the Kempe Foundation. The application material includes a current CV and a maximum 5-page research proposal for work at IIASA, including a letter of invitation from the host program or programs at IIASA.

The Kempe Foundation ”Kempestiftelserna” in Sweden offers postdoctoral scholarships for researchers to come to IIASA from the following three northernmost Swedish universities:

  • Luleå University of Technology
  • Umeå University
  • Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Umeå

The scholarship aims to support researchers conducting research on topics closely related to IIASA's research agenda. Scholars can spend up to two years at IIASA. Administrative, computer and library support as well as other research-related resources are provided by IIASA.

The long-term goal of the visit is that the incumbent should create a personal inter­­national network that will foster cooperation between IIASA and the home institution after end of stay.

Note: In addition to the Kempe Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship, please not that you are also eligible to apply to the IIASA-funded postdoctoral fellowships.

Requirements

Those interested in using this opportunity to work in an international and interdisciplinary environment should acknowledge the following:

Applicants research interests should fit with existing research projects at IIASA.

A current CV and description (max. five pages) of current research interests and how the outcome of the stay to IIASA is envisaged.

The application should contain an indication of the duration of the stay and which program/project the applicant is interested in working with.

The applicant should be employed by Luleå University of Technology, Umeå University or the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Umeå.

Each scholar is required to provide credible deliverables at the end of the stay.

The scholarship is a Post Doc. (PhD students are encouraged to consider IIASA’s Young Scientist Summer program)

Funding

The 350,000 SEK scholarship is paid directly to the individual.

Fellows

Fulvio Di Fulvio

Fulvio Di Fulvio focuses on mapping global forest resources and calculating the costs of supplying wood biomass for both material and energy uses. More

Tobias Eriksson

Tobias Eriksson from Sweden worked on the development of carbon balance models for boreal peatlands. More

Terence Fell

Terence Fell carried out research focusing on the institutional mismatch between formal natural resource management policies and the informal rules in use in local community contexts. More

Jacob Johansson

Jacob Johansson developed eco-evolutionary models for explaining fundamental patterns of variation in plant community structures. More

Ola Lindroos

Ola Lilndroos's area of research is within forest operation efficiency. More

Erling Lundevaller

Erling Lundevaller focused on methods for demographic projections, including micro-simulation where the life course of each individual is followed. This allows, inter alia, the spatial-temporal aspects of fertility and mortality to be analyzed, allowing the future composition of populations to be predicted. More

Sennai Mesfun

Sennai Mesfun studies the impact of prolonged adverse weather events in power systems with high share of renewable sources. More

Eva-Maria Nordström

Eva-Maria Nordström worked on scenario analysis for the forest sector conducting global and local analysis, particularly in Scandinavia and Sweden. More

Johan Östergren

Johan Östergren looked into eco-genetic modeling of human-induced evolution (i.e., through dams and fisheries) in anadromous fish in general, with a particular interest in sea trout. More

Henrik Sjödin

Henrik Sjödin uses mathematical models to show how migration between groups can transform simple, non-cooperative communities into highly cooperative ones. More
