Full Text of JOE Listing:

Duke University and World Wildlife Fund invite applications from recent graduates with a PhD in topics related to food security or fisheries (e.g. economics, natural resource management, geography, political science, or marine science) to perform collaborative research related to the urgent need for robust, evidence-based strategies and policies that achieve sustainable and equitable outcomes for biodiversity and people involved in small-scale fisheries.

The successful candidate will be responsible for synthesizing and developing novel insights on the drivers and mechanisms that affect food security and other social outcomes in small scale fisheries. The post-doc fellow will accomplish these goals through one or more of the following methods: knowledge synthesis, causal inference analysis, systems modelling, and other related methods. The candidate will also be responsible for coordinating with a network of collaborators, developing policy-relevant outputs, and disseminating research on small-scale fisheries. The audience for this Duke-WWF project is wide, including policy makers and community groups. The position will work under the mentorship of Dr. David Gill (Nicholas School of the Environment, Duke University) and Dr. Gabby Ahmadia (Marine Conservation Science, Oceans, WWF), and offers a unique opportunity to work with renowned fisheries researchers around the world.
