1. Coupled human-ecological modelling (minimum skills needed: dynamical systems mathematical modelling, advanced computer programming for agent-based modelling) applied to agroecological mosaics, forest dynamics and/or other environmental systems (e.g., Henderson et al. 2016, PNAS).
2. Human-environment network analysis & modelling (applied to a variety of terrestrial ecosystems and human social systems including trade networks of food and other resources (e.g., Fair et al. 2017 Scientific Reports).
3. Vegetation dynamics of forest-grassland (not savanna) mosaics of the world, with potential field work in Brazil and/or India (experience in disturbance ecology, landscape ecology, etc. — sample ecosystem found in Silva & Anand (2011) Ecosystems).

Many collaborative opportunities are available. Please send enquiries (with CV) to to initiate discussions. Enquiries will be reviewed beginning November 1, 2018 until a suitable candidate is found. post may been deleted on April 1, 2019
