Postdoc fellow oportunity in Land and Livelihoods Systems Research

Two post-doctoral research opportunities are available at the new School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS) at the University of Michigan beginning summer or fall 2017. The selected candidates will join a team of researchers working on several multi-year projects that focus on systematic analyses of the impacts of changes in land tenure and of different types of project implementation efforts in relation to forests and agriculture. The projects aim to explore and explain the patterns of interactions and outcomes in social-ecological systems. A goal of the effort is to identify causal impacts using the best available techniques for observational data. The projects are funded by DFID-UK, by NASA, and by the NSF and the ongoing research covers Ghana, Liberia, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Brazil, Indonesia, and Nepal. These are full-time positions available with an initial appointment of one-year. The appointments are renewable for an additional year on the basis of satisfactory performance in terms of publications, working on grants deliverables and new grant applications, and contributing to team goals.
