Post-Doctoral Social Scientist: Impact Evaluation (WWF, Washington DC)

WWF is re-opening the application process for a post-doctoral social scientist.

We seek a highly motivated researcher early in his/her career to join our team. The successful applicant will have strong statistical skills, international field experience, and a passion for policy-relevant conservation science. (See below and attached for official announcement.)

The post-doc will join the science program at WWF in Washington, DC, working with me, Helen Fox (WWF-US), Arun Agrawal (U. Michigan), and colleagues around the world to evaluate the ecological and social impacts of marine protected areas (MPAs) and other conservation interventions. This exciting portfolio is part of the emerging WWF
Conservation Impact Initiative, which seeks to catalyze rigorous evaluation of conservation interventions and, thus, provide the scientific evidence for more effective conservation policy and practice.

The application deadline is August 13. All applications should be submitted via the WWF website.
