The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Rese­arch Assi­stant (19 h/week)

The Chair of Trop­ical and Inter­na­tional Forestry is seek­ing to appoint a uni­versity gradu­ate as a
Research Assist­ant (19 h/week) start­ing as soon as pos­sible for the dur­a­tion of 4 months. The period of employ­ment is gov­erned by the Fixed Term Research Con­tracts Act (Wis­senschaft­szeitver­trags­ge­setz - Wis­sZeitVG).

He/She will work under the BMUB IKI pro­ject "Pro­duc­tion-driven forest land­scape res­tor­a­tion under REDD+ through private sec­tor - com­munity part­ner­ships as Asian-regional learn­ing exchange (FLOUR­ISH)". Work­place is Thar­andt.

Pro­ject descrip­tion: The research pro­ject, fun­ded by the Inter­na­tional Cli­mate Ini­ti­at­ive (IKI) of the Fed­eral Min­istry for the Envir­on­ment, Nature Con­ser­va­tion and Nuc­lear Safety (BMU), aims to develop part­ner­ships between com­munit­ies and the private sec­tor to restore degraded forest land­scapes in Laos, Thai­l­and and Viet­nam, and thus improv­ing the live­li­hood of the rural people. Loc­ally adap­ted busi­ness mod­els between small­hold­ers and the private sec­tor are invest­ig­ated and sup­por­ted by NGOs, local gov­ern­ments and uni­versit­ies. Research is planned in the broad frame­work of the cli­mate policy of "Redu­cing Emis­sions from Defor­est­a­tion and Forest Degrad­a­tion" (REDD +). The pos­i­tion provides the oppor­tun­ity to gain exper­i­ences in prac­tice-ori­ented research in con­text of an inter­na­tional pro­ject.

Work­ing field:

The rese­arch assi­stant will sup­port the FLOU­RISH rese­arch coor­di­na­tor at TUD in the imple­men­ta­tion of a study con­cer­ned with the trans­for­ma­tion of the Lao wood indus­try resul­ting from policy chan­ges for tim­ber value chain and indus­try upgra­ding. The core tasks of the rese­arch assi­stant encom­pass lite­ra­ture reviews, the ana­ly­sis of qua­li­ta­tive and quan­ti­ta­tive data from field sur­veys, and the co-wri­ting of reports and other com­mu­ni­ca­tion mate­ri­als for result dis­se­mi­na­tion.


App­li­cants should have a bache­lor’s or mas­ter’s degree in forestry, eco­no­mics, geo­gra­phy, deve­lop­ment stu­dies or other disci­pli­nes rela­ted to the pro­ject. Writ­ten and oral pro­fi­ci­ency in Eng­lish is requi­red. Expe­ri­ence in quan­ti­ta­tive and qua­li­ta­tive data ana­ly­sis, and/or skills in spa­tial data pro­ces­sing and map design are of advan­tage.
