City of Aveiro

Located in the Central Region of Portugal, Aveiro combines perfectly tradition, nature and modernity. The main influence on the city is the Aveiro coastal lagoon system, making it unique. It brings together industry, business, tourism, sports, architectural and natural heritage and a university that knows how to welcome anyone with open arms. Aveiro is a safe and quiet city, benefiting from all of the advantages of a major city, while also being a pleasant place in which to live and work. The Aveiro region is also a good starting point to visit and discover Portugal, as it is a short distance from the major Portuguese cities, in particular the capital Lisbon (about 220 km) and Porto (about 60 km away), where there are English, German, and French International schools. Its central position and the road and rail networks that go through it mean that travelling is easy to different parts of the country and even to Spain. The proximity of the Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport in Porto makes it easy to travel and discover other parts of Europe.

INBO – PhD Research opportunity: socio-ecological keystone species

Through the application of a system thinking approach, this PhD research aims to explore (potentially hidden) species-based interactions between nature and society. We will analyze social-ecological keystone species coexistence with humans and societies and highlight indirect feedback loops, focusing on existing cases and action research in real-life situations and ongoing projects. This study focuses on:

  • exploring and analysing existing social-ecological keystone species
  • theoretical conceptualization of the concept
  • its consequences, potential and conditions for application
