Applications are invited for a three-year postdoctoral research assistant (PDRA) to work on the CongoPeat project, a NERC-funded Large Grant which will study the newly-described peatlands of the Congo Basin, Africa. This PDRA position, based at the University of St Andrews, will focus on researching the long-term ecology of the Congo Basin peatlands.

Closing Date: 6 September 2018   

Interview Date: 13/14 September 2018

Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral research fellow to work on the project Valuing Intact Tropical Peatlands: An Interdisciplinary Challenge, funded by a Leverhulme Trust research project grant. Thus far, research on these important ecosystems has focused on international scientific agendas (e.g. carbon storage), but if conservation and sustainable development programmes in the region are to be successful then the science of the natural environment must be studied alongside the issues that are important to local communities, such as the changing availability of wild resources e.g. fruit and game animals. 

Closing Date: 10 September 2018

Research Fellow (Valuing Intact Tropical Peatlands - Social Science) - Ref no: AR2124HM
Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral research fellow to work on the project Valuing Intact Tropical Peatlands: An Interdisciplinary Challenge, funded by the Leverhulme Trust. The project will use participatory methods to develop an intercultural understanding of the value and meaning of peatlands in Amazonia. Thus far research in these ecosystems has focused on scientific agendas but if conservation and sustainable development programmes in the region are to be successful then local and socio-ecological/cultural perspectives must also be understood. The research fellow will be responsible for the social science elements of the research and will be one of three research fellows working on the project (the other two working on ecology/hydrology and remote sensing aspects of the project).

Closing Date: 10 September 2018
