Postdoctoral Position with the International Forestry Resources and
Institutions (IFRI) network

The International Forestry Resources and Institutions (IFRI) Network,
located at the University of Michigan’s School of Natural Resources and
Environment, seeks a postdoctoral fellow for a one-year appointment
beginning Fall 2011. The Postdoctoral Fellow will work under the direct
supervision of Professor Arun Agrawal who coordinates the IFRI network.
The Fellow will conduct and support research for several existing projects
on institutional and social dimensions of forest outcomes and climate
adaptation, community forest governance, and land cover change. As
necessary, the Fellow will also assist with the preparation of new grant
proposals, coordination of IFRI field research, and organization of
research workshops in national and international contexts. A combination
of scholarly imagination and rigorous interdisciplinary empirical and
analytical skills will provide applicants a competitive edge. Strong
statistical training, experience working with complex social-ecological
datasets, and some spatial analysis skills (GIS and Remote Sensing) are
especially desirable.  Qualified applicants may come from a range of
fields, including Political Science, Public Policy, Geography, Sociology,
Economics, Ecology, and Environment programs.
To apply, please send a 1-page cover letter, names of two recommendation
letter writers, and a copy of a recent publication (all as a single file
with your full name in the filename) to Joan Wolf at ifri at umich.edu. The
initial appointment will be for a year, with the possibility of renewal
for a second year contingent on satisfactory performance and final
approval of funds. We will begin reviewing applications August 15, and
will accept applications until Sept. 1, or until the position is filled.
