Postdoc pos­i­tion

within the DFG-fun­ded pro­ject “Eth­ical issues in agri­cul­tural land mar­kets”

Work­ing field:

The present-day agri­cul­tural land mar­kets in the coun­tries under invest­ig­a­tion are marked by the dra­matic increase of land prices and rents, the grow­ing role of non-agri­cul­tural investors, the rise of large-scale hold­ing struc­tures, and the grow­ing demand for the con­ver­sion of agri­cul­tural land toward non-agri­cul­tural uses. All these trends are often felt to have moral sig­ni­fic­ance. The present pro­ject is aimed at explic­at­ing this sig­ni­fic­ance, explor­ing the pos­sib­il­it­ies and lim­its of the pub­lic reg­u­la­tion of agri­cul­tural land mar­kets, and devel­op­ing the con­cep­tual tools for address­ing those moral dilem­mas whose com­plex­ity runs up against the lim­its of the reg­u­lat­ory poten­tial.

The pro­ject activ­it­ies will tent­at­ively include eth­ical assess­ment of agri­cul­tural land mar­kets, organ­iz­a­tion of stake­holder inter­views and work­shops, dis­course ana­lysis, and the con­struc­tion of the “social fab­ric mat­rix”.


1. Suit­able can­did­ates have a PhD degree in eco­nom­ics, agri­cul­tural eco­nom­ics, busi­ness admin­is­tra­tion, busi­ness eth­ics, soci­ology
2. Com­pet­ence in con­cep­tual and empir­ical research meth­ods, such as dis­course ana­lysis, stake­holder inter­views, and social fab­ric mat­rix
3. Interest in busi­ness eth­ics, eco­nomic eth­ics, insti­tu­tional eco­nom­ics
4. Will­ing­ness to study and work in an inter­na­tional envir­on­ment
5. Flu­ency in Eng­lish; a work­ing know­ledge of Ger­man is desir­able
