Resource management in Arctic environment

The tenure track position “Resource management in Arctic environment” will strengthen the ArcI research area “Sustainable systems, resource use and development”. This research area covers a broad set of expertise that is needed to provide sustainable solutions for urbanisation, infrastructure, water and environmental protection, human health and good quality of life. The current research also includes a strong focus on sustainable use of Northern natural resources, sustainable winter cities, urban infrastructure (such as intelligent lighting, transport systems) and massive-wood architecture, mineral resources and biomasses utilisation, and participatory action studies and Arctic culture. Research methods include for example analysis of the past solutions, process and product development with the industry and research by design, which offers possibilities in modelling future solutions of built environment and urban structure.

The research in “Resource management in Arctic environment” should integrate natural resource management to understand complex interactions (across various systems, scales, pressures) and coupled phenomena (climate-land-water-energy Nexus) linked to the assessment of policies of e.g. carbon neutrality, impacts on environment (water, biodiversity).

The Research Council of the University of Oulu has appointed Dr.Sc.(Tech.) Ali Torabi Haghighi, Faculty of Technology, to the tenure track position as Associate professor level.
