EMPLOYMENT: Post Doctoral Fellow Climate Change, ASB Partnership for the Tropical Forest Margins
The ASB Partnership for the Tropical Forest Margins has emphasized the need for understanding and developing synergies and trade-offs between mitigation and adaptation at multiple levels. While this is recognized in the literature, little has been done on concrete options for synergies and optimizing trade-offs. Therefore, ASB is developing a Global Research Programme on Linking Mitigation and Adaptation (MITI-ADAPT GLOBAL) which proposes to explore viable conceptual and empirical frameworks for enhancing synergies between mitigation and adaptation at global, national and local levels from a land management perspective. This project aims to provide transformative thinking on linking adaptation and mitigation in the climate change domain with potentially huge global impact and benefits. The work will also contribute to the new CG Consortium Research Projects, especially CRP 6.4 on Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation and CRP7 on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security.
The Post Doc Climate Change Scientist will be a member of the ASB’s Global Coordination Office. Under the supervision of the ASB Global Coordinator, the incumbent will be responsible for conducting research on land management experiences at linking climate change adaptation and mitigation through desk reviews, meta-analysis and case studies. The incumbent will be based at the World Agroforestry Centre headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya.
Deadline: February 29, 2012
