Postdoctoral Research Associate Position: Future Scenarios of Landscape Change in New England
Open as of March 10, 2015; review of applications begins on March 30th, 2015
The Harvard Forest invites applications for a post-doctoral research position to contribute to a multi-institutional study of future land-use scenarios and their consequences on ecosystem functions and services in New England. The successful candidate will be a member of Jonathan Thompson’s Landscape Ecology Lab at the Harvest Forest and will work in close collaboration with Kathy Fallon Lambert, David Foster and members of the Scenarios Services and Society Research Coordination Network. We are seeking a natural or social scientist with experience conducting regional-scale socio-ecological research. The candidate should be interested in using a scenarios approach to better understand how land uses—such as conservation, forestry, land conversion and agriculture—may change as a result of climate change and, in turn, what impacts the altered land-use regime would have on regional ecosystems.
