The forest inventory and monitoring research group (SkogRover) at the Faculty of Environmental Sciences and Natural Resource Management (MINA), Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU), develops methods to increase our knowledge of forests and forest-related resources.
Project summary Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) are an important mechanism to link the demands of the society with the service providers.
Our research group has six vacant 3-year PhD or 2-year postdoctoral researcher (Post.Doc) positions, depending on the qualifications of the applicants.
