Post-doctoral fellow - NatureNet
Closing Date: July 25, 2018
Posted: June 25, 2018
The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is pleased to solicit applications for a special opportunity with the NatureNet Science Fellows, a trans-disciplinary postdoctoral fellowship and research grant program, and in collaboration with the Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP). SNAPP convenes working groups to produce synthesis science research and inform sustainable development and conservation solutions.
SNAPP seeks a Fellow to support an exciting new project at the intersection of marine science, climate science, governance and planning. The project is engaging world-class experts, thought leaders, and practitioners from a range of science, climate, business, and government backgrounds to conduct a horizon scan, identifying key research questions that must be answered to effectively transform marine conservation by 2050. SNAPP then intends to convene a minimum of two working groups to delve into top-priority questions. The Fellow will have various pathways to engage with this work and have significant ability to leverage this effort for her or his own research.
This position is located at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis at the University of California, Santa Barbara.Skills/Eligibility:
Applicants must have completed their doctorate within five years of the application close date. Please contact the NatureNet Program Director if there are extenuating circumstances that have caused significant educational or employment disruption resulting in an applicant holding their doctorate for more than five years.
Postdoctoral appointments and grant dispersals start between May 1 and October 1. Applicants who have not yet completed their doctorate must clearly indicate on the application that the degree is expected to be awarded no later than September 1 of the year they start the fellowship. For those applying for a fellowship through Columbia University, this must be the first post-doc position you will hold.
Fellowships and grants are expected to run for two consecutive years. Second-year renewal is contingent upon satisfactory progress and contribution to the collective program.
