PhD Position in Spatially Explicit Global Supply Chain Modelling

The research group ‘Global Resource Use’ at the Institute for Ecological Economics, Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU), invites applications for a PhD position within the framework of the upcoming project REMASS (Resilience and Malleability of Social Metabolism), funded by the Austrian Science Fund. The successful candidate will develop spatially explicit models to trace raw material flows from extraction sites (e.g., mining of metal ores or harvesting of crops or timber) along sub-national and international trade routes to manufacturing sectors and final consumption. The candidate will build upon existing physical multi-regional input-output (MRIO) models (e.g., the FABIO model for global agriculture and food products) and enhance them with detailed information on the geographical distribution of resource extraction and sub-national trade patterns.

The 3-year position (with an option to extend the contract by one additional year) is open as of October 1st, 2024.
