Full Text of JOE Listing:

The East-West Center is accepting applications for two positions in the Center’s Early Career Scholars program. The ECS program mentors outstanding individuals with the intellectual curiosity and multidisciplinary research skills needed to explore the rapid and transformative changes occurring in fields such as agriculture, urbanization, food security, water usage and conservation, labor and migration, economics, governance, and climate change across the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. The Fellow will work constructively with colleagues from across the region to advance methodologies for finding, communicating, and implementing new solutions to important policy issues using the language and methods of the biophysical and social sciences. The Center is most interested in candidates whose expertise and work are regional or sub-regional in scope rather than single-country specialists. The ECS program offers the Fellow an opportunity to join a community of collaborators to create imaginative, transdisciplinary projects in pursuit of insights into the complex systems that matter most for science and society in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. The positions are for a two-year limited appointment.

Required Qualifications:
Candidates must have a Ph.D. or equivalent in a field such as Geography, Political Science, Economics, Urban and Regional Planning, Natural Resources and Environmental Management, Demography, Sociology, Information Technology, or a related field from an accredited college or university. Seeking individuals who are starting a career or changing career paths toward scholarly research with demonstrated ability to work collaboratively and effectively as part of a transdisciplinary team in cooperative, cross-cultural, transdisciplinary endeavors. Candidates must be receptive to mentoring in pursuing career objectives and should show a record of research achievement commensurate with their time in their field of study with capacity in analytical and policy-relevant research. Good communication skills in the English language demonstrating the ability to communicate results and recommendations in a clear and concise manner to academic as well as informed policy, public, and private-sector audiences. Candidates will have research and experience in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

Preferred Qualifications:
Demonstrated record of peer-reviewed research; research and experience in Asia, including Island Southeast Asia, Oceania, and Hawaii. Ability to bridge educational, research, professional training, and business expertise to resolve social, economic, and environmental issues, realizing that success normally requires multiple sectors to work constructively together.
