As of 1st of October 2017 Leuphana University of Lüneburg – together with the Robert Bosch foundation – starts an exciting new research group “Processes of Sustainability Transformation”. Within that international and interdisciplinary research group 12 PhD students will conduct research on drivers and barriers of transformation processes towards sustainability: What can we learn from successful examples of such processes? What from failure? How can this be explained from within different disciplines and perspectives? How does transformation take place in different places and across time scales? By doing so the research group is systematically analyzing processes of transformation towards sustainability in different contexts, regions and perspectives.

One perspective is the role of sustainable chemistry. As for  the open PhD student position on sustainable chemistry within the textile sector more information is available at:

Overarching aims and general background for the work of the research group are threefold:

  • to produce high-quality contributions to further research on transformation processes in sustainability science,
  • to create a better conceptual, theoretical and methodological understanding of drivers, barriers and opportunities for sustainability transformations, and
  • to offer a tailored PhD program for excellent students in sustainability science.

The innovative character of the project will also be reflected in the structure of the PhD program to best serve the needs of the participants. Together with our partners from research institutes and universities both in Germany and globally, two tailored pathways are offered to conduct a PhD: with an opportunity for an internship of up to 12 months either at one of our international partner universities or at one of our national research institutes, students will deepen their academic experience as well as their international and interdisciplinary research practice.
