UCCRI/Wolfson College Postdoctoral Research Fellowship - apply by 6 March

last modified Feb 07, 2017 09:27 AM
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship based at the University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute to assess the role of forests and landscapes in relation to climate change, agricultural production and livelihoods.

This project will quantify and describe the performance of contrasting approaches, and specifically test the emerging idea that if they are to be effective and socially equitable, efforts to safeguard (or restore) tropical forests must be linked to compensatory increases in agricultural outputs outside of forests.

This three year interdisciplinary research project is based at the University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute, and is funded by the Frank Jackson Foundation and Wolfson College. The project is led by Professor Andrew Balmford, Professor David Coomes and Dr Bhaskar Vira.

Please download application details and further particulars here.

The closing date is 6 March 2017.
