EMPLOYMENT: Research Positions at WorldFish Center

The WorldFish Center, a member of the Consortium on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), seeks three researchers with interests in climate change impact, and adaptation or mitigation policies and practices applicable to developing countries. The successful applicants will develop and implement work on two major cross-CGIAR research programmes: Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) (http://www.ccafs.cgiar.org) and the Aquatic Agricultural Systems (AAS) programme (http://www.worldfishcenter.org/wfcms/HQ/article.aspx?ID=1195). Although WorldFish focuses on fisheries and aquaculture, we work with people whose livelihoods also include crop and livestock agriculture and we take a broad systems approach, in collaboration with other CGIAR centers.

The three positions are:

  1. Senior/Principal Scientist – Climate Change impact, adaptation and mitigation, based in Penang, Malaysia. The successful candidate will lead the Center’s programme on climate change research and represent us in the CCAFS programme. Successful project and programme leadership experience and a track record of securing research funding is required.
  2. Postdoctoral fellow: Economics of climate change: with a focus on impact assessment and costs and benefits of adaptation, based in Penang. Applicants should have strong econometric or economic modeling skills.
  3. Postdoctoral fellow/Scientist: Climate change impacts and adaptation in coastal Bangladesh. This position demands good research design and field-based implementation skills, and is based in Dhaka, with fieldwork in Khulna District, Bangladesh.
