International PhD Program | Interdisciplinary Landscape Management

International PhD Program

Interdisciplinary Landscape Management

The PhD on Interdisciplinary Landscape Management was created three years ago – as a joint PhD Program involving the University of the Azores, the University of Évora and the Technical University of Lisbon - by a group of Portuguese lecturers and researchers very much connected internationally with Regional Science, Landscape Ecology, Agricultural Economics, Environmental Economics and Nature and Forestry Management.

Until now PhD students, around come from Alentejo, Lisbon, Azores, Madeira, Angola and next year the first group will present their PhD thesis. The scientific committee of the PhD program things this is the right time to further internationalize the PhD Program, providing classes in English and enlarging the geographical scope of the students. We would like to involve next year 6 to 12 very good students able to interact creatively between scientific established paradigms and very much interested in addressing the scientific and policy challenges of the landscape.

The program involves one semester in Portugal and the development of the thesis can be done either in Portugal or in any other place with whom there are still effective links (US, Denmark, Brazil, Spain, Angola...) or with whom it is possible to establish strong research interactions.

The aim of this PhD program is the development of methodologies and scientific  capabilities to support the design and evaluation of public policies and the creation of management tools that can help meet the growing demands of society for the multiple goods and services provided by the rural landscapes (agriculture, recreation, biodiversity, water, carbon sequestration, energy, etc.).

Students that are interested should, first, send their CV and letter of motivation to one of the members of the scientific committee
