Postdoctoral Associate in Economics & Conservation

We are seeking a postdoctoral scholar at the interface of economics, conservation, and natural resource management, to enable collaborative research between us and The Nature Conservancy (TNC). The fellow will pursue cutting-edge research that supports the development of policies and practices for environmental managers.

A primary activity for the postdoc is supporting, enabling, and advancing a series of workshops that perform synthetic analysis in the area of ecological economics. Workshop topics are proposed by TNC staff and provide world-class expertise for emerging TNC needs. Each workshop will focus on an urgent, time-bound economics problem and will scope and analyze the issue in a single engagement, ending with recommendations for management actions. Informed by the best available data, models, and case studies, the workshops will produce reports and journal articles for broad consumption by the conservation community and ecological economists. There will be several workshops per year on topics ranging from water funds to incentives for promoting carbon storage in soils.
