Landcare Research New Zealand is one of seven Crown Research Institutes in New Zealand. Our purposes are to drive innovation in managing terrestrial biodiversity and land resources, protect the terrestrial environment, and grow New Zealand’s prosperity.

We are recruiting one Economist and one Senior Economist with strong interests in natural resources, the environment, and public policy. Example research areas include but are not limited to ecosystem services valuation, adaptation to climate change and invasive species, impact evaluation of conservation programmes, hedonic analysis, human-environment interactions, and analysis of protected areas.

Applicants must hold a PhD in a relevant field and demonstrate interest in multidisciplinary collaboration, undertaking policy-relevant research, and developing new research areas in partnership with end users and stakeholders. The Senior Economist position requires 7+ years of post-PhD experience. Both positions require excellent communication skills for specialised and non-expert audiences and publishing research results in leading peer-reviewed journals.

The successful candidates will join a team working in environmental/agricultural economics and related fields. The positions are based in Auckland (or Wellington by negotiation).
