Full Text of JOE Listing:
The fellow will be involved with EPA researchers in designing a classification system for ecosystem goods and services to meet policy design and analysis needs. The approach to classification will provide an efficient framework for linking data, models, and accounting systems to describe the production, consumption, and valuation of ecosystem goods and services. Illustrative scientific challenges include designing a classification system that supports marginal analysis, facilitates hierarchical aggregation, incorporates spatial and temporal dimensions of production and consumption activities, accounts for joint (complementary) production and consumption of market and nonmarket goods and services, and integrates market, near-market, and nonmarket activities.

EPA team activities may include defining, grouping and valuing ecosystem goods and services; designing integrated data, modeling, and accounting systems; and evaluating policy design and analysis requirements. The fellow may have the opportunity to disseminate research findings through workshops, reports, and scientific manuscripts.
