EMPLOYMENT: Livelihoods and Land Use Change in Mozambique (ACES)
ACES (Abrupt Changes in Ecosystem Services and Wellbeing in Mozambican Woodlands?) is a research project funded by ESPA . It involves scientists and practitioners from Mozambique, the UK, Sweden, Zimbabwe and Brazil. They are working to understand how the livelihoods of rural people in the miombo woodlands of Mozambique change as the landscape is converted from woodlands to agriculture.
They are now seeking to appoint 3 new team members who will be based mainly in Mozambique:
- Two Post-Doctoral Research Associates (PDRAs). One in the field of tropical land use change and another in agriculture and rural development and
- One Impact Fellow to coordinate the convening of relevant stakeholders and strengthening communities of practice for successful linkages between science, policy influence and action towards sustainable use of ecosystems services for poverty alleviation.
Deadline: December 2nd (Impact Fellow) and December 6th (PDRAs)
