Das Projekt ist Teil des vom BMBF in der Programmlinie „T!Raum – TransferRäume für die Zukunft von Regionen“ geförderten Transferbündnisses „Alterperimentale“. Ziel des Projekts ist es, partizipative und ko-kreative Strukturen und Praktiken zur Förderung soziotechnischer und sozialökologischer Innovationen in der deutsch-polnischen Grenzregion zu fördern. Der Fokus der Forschungs- und Transferaktivitäten liegt auf älteren Menschen, deren Lebensqualität durch unterschiedliche Wissenstransferformate verbessert werden soll. Dazu schafft der Projektverbund Denk- und Experimentierräume – sogenannte Praxisforschungsstellen im brandenburgischen Heinersdorf, in Cottbus und Görlitz. Der Schwerpunkt des Projekts an der KHSB liegt auf der wissenschaftlichen Begleitung der Praxisforschungsstellen und der Entwicklung und Erprobung partizipativer und kokreativer Formate der Wissensproduktion und Praxis. Damit verbundene Forschungsaspekte sind die Lebenssituation älterer Menschen in ländlichen Räumen, gesundheitliche und pflegerische Versorgung, caring communities und sozialräumliche Innovationsprozesse. Das Projekt arbeitet mit den Bündnispartnern der „Alterperimentale“ in Brandenburg und Sachsen eng zusammen und unterstützt die wissenschaftskommunikative Vermittlung des Transfers.

At Sage Bionetworks, we believe that we can learn more by engaging and collaborating with people from a diversity of experiences, backgrounds and identities. We develop and apply open practices to data-driven research for the advancement of human health. We are working to establish actionable biomedical observations through the reliable analysis and responsible sharing of representative data. By improving the way scientists collaborate and by increasing the reliability of research, we will improve human health.
Team Science Research
Sage Bionetworks is looking for a Research Scientist to support a new National Library of Medicine-funded research project to develop the evidence base for improved information strategies, processes, and tools by identifying and describing the information behaviors of TTs, along with the information strategies teams use to achieve their scientific goals. The project aims to recruit ~15 translational teams to participate in qualitative interviews about the way they manage information, seeking to identify barriers and facilitators to effective information management in clinical and translational research. Additionally, we will conduct surveys to understand the impact information has on other team processes and collect data on scientific outcomes. Under direction of the PI and in collaboration with the Principal Scientist, Team Science, the Research Scientist will be responsible for the design, conduct, and dissemination of results for this research study.
Max Planck Institute for Demographic Reserach
The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) is recruiting two highly qualified Post-Docs, or more senior Research Scientists, to join the Department of Digital and Computational Demography, headed by MPIDR Director Emilio Zagheni. One position will be filled in the Lab of Migration and Mobility and one in the Lab of Population Dynamics and Sustainable Well-Being.
Digital and computational demography is a growing interdisciplinary field that tackles fundamental questions across all domains of demographic research by combining the methods and perspectives of computational sciences, social and behavioral sciences, and statistics. The field has emerged in parallel with rapid technological improvements in computing, the spread of Internet and mobile technologies, and the increased digitalization of people’s lives. Our group brings together methodologists (from areas like statistics, computer science or formal demography) with experts in various areas of the social sciences in order to foster cross-pollination of ideas, to advance methods and theories of population research, and to address pressing scientific and societal questions.Candidates who can enrich or complement projects in any Research Area of the Lab of Migration and Mobility or of the Lab of Population Dynamics and Sustainable Well-Being will be considered. Across all profiles, ability and willingness to work in interdisciplinary teams in order to conduct cutting-edge research that advances our understanding of population processes is key. Examples of themes that we are interested in strengthening include (but are not limited to):

University of Bern
The Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine (ISPM) at the University of Bern performs research in a range of disciplines relevant to public health (www.ispm.unibe.ch ). Groups cut across divisions, facilitating an interdisciplinary approach to research in the fields of clinical epidemiology, social and behavioral health, biostatistics, and international and environmental health. The Health Services Research Group is looking for a highly motivated Research Fellow for an ambitious patient safety project in cancer care led by Prof. Dr. David Schwappach and Prof. Dr. Sofia Zambrano.
This project, funded by Swiss Cancer Research, explores preventable, psychological harm as a patient safety topic. You will develop a framework, definitions and expert consensus on psychological safety events in cancer care. Based on this, the frequency and severity, as well as potential predictors and consequences will be empirically investigated from different perspectives. You will help improve knowledge on harmful psychological events in cancer patients and contribute to the quality and safety of cancer care.
Starting Date: Febuary 2024

The purpose of the position is to help the RUNRES project achieve its stated objective, which is to develop sustainable city-region food systems predicated on the recycling of organic waste and enhanced food value chains. The project scientist will be based in the Sustainable Agroecosystems group at ETH Zürich but will be responsible for coordinating with, and travelling to, each project country on a regular basis. The project scientist will lead efforts to quantify the impact of the project, ensure the safety of the recycled products produced by project innovation leaders, support scaling efforts, write project reports, develop and disseminate grey literature, author peer reviewed publications focused on the project’s findings, and actively lead and manage the entire project.
This is a one year contract with the possibility for extension through RUNRES phase II (4 years).
UPSCALE (2024-2028) is a 4year multidisciplinary project led by ETH and WSL. It is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation. UPSCALE will advance forest health and mortality monitoring by bridging methods and disciplines. We will integrate early warning signals for the detection of tree health decline, and mortality in trees and forests across spatial scales - from the tree to the landscape level. We will link high spatial and temporal resolution remote sensing data with traditional ground-based forest monitoring data, novel close-to-real time tree and ecosystem level assessments, and belowground information to identify key proxies of forest drought stress, tree health, and mortality risk. Our work will provide a solid backdrop aiding decision-makers in prioritizing their silvicultural, and forest management planning activities, ensuring the sustainable provision of forest goods and ecosystem services under future climate conditions.
The PhD is planned for a period of four years. The PhD student will be part of the UPSCALE project team and be responsible for the work package “Connecting science and practice”. In the PhD you will have to:
