EMPLOYMENT: CIFOR Post Doctoral Fellow, Equitable Benefit sharing for Sustainable Forestry

This post doctoral fellow position will contribute to research that seeks to understand the factors that condition equitable benefit sharing in forestry settings that are characterised by multiple uses, users and values. Key issues for investigation include: a) sustainable use and conservation of production forestry, especially interactions between forest concession management and adjacent communities’ rights and benefits to forest resources; and b) the role of property rights/tenure regimes in enhancing equitable benefit sharing within and among communities involved in REDD+ schemes. The research aims to strengthen policy makers and relevant actors’ capacities to develop and implement strategies and processes that are inclusive of women and disadvantaged groups and that enhance their rights and access to forest resources, decisions and benefits.

The Post Doctoral Fellow will contribute substantially to research design, data collection management, data analysis and production of research deliverables, as well the dissemination of research findings.
