Post-doctoral researcher in Climate Change Adaptation and Biodiversity Monitoring
This post-doc is a two-year grant-funded term position monitoring outcomes of nature-based solutions to climate change in rural Zimbabwe. While the post-doctoral researcher is directly responsible to the Principal Investigator (PI), the person will work with an interdisciplinary research team in Canada and Zimbabwe. The project, Locally-led Indigenous Nature Based Solution for Climate Change Adaptation in Zimbabwe (LINC-Z), is funded through Global Affairs Canada and in partnership with Mennonite Central Committee.
As an integral member of the research team, the post-doc will apply spatial analysis to monitor landscape-scale outcomes of nature-based solutions/interventions for restoring forest, wetland, and degraded agricultural lands and protecting/enhancing biodiversity in rural communities in Zimbabwe. The post-doc will also work with the PI to develop community ecosystem monitoring programs or apps and work with a research coordinator to disseminate knowledge through an innovative learning hub.
This position is ideal for early career scholars seeking to gain collaborative research experience with an emphasis on creating data for publication and for the public.
