EMPLOYMENT: Program Manager for Governance, Environment & Markets Initiative at Yale

The Governance, Environment & Markets (GEM) Initiative seeks a Program Manager for our growing research center at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.

The GEM Initiative aims to reorient environmental governance research and practice from short term and single intervention approaches towards durable “results based” problem solving that embraces, rather than bypasses, multi-level complexity. GEM is based at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, one of the world’s leading hubs of research and teaching in environmental policy and governance. Under the leadership of Prof. Benjamin Cashore, a team of scholars and graduate students carry out GEM’s research and programmatic activities in collaboration with a global network of practitioners and scholars based in developed and developing countries. GEM conducts research with partners in Brazil, Mexico, Germany, Indonesia, and Tanzania, and other countries around the world. Managing the GEM Initiative is a unique opportunity to engage in environmental policy research that bridges the divide between scholarship and practice on the ground.
