[ECOLOG-L] Postdoc: Land Use Change, Economics, Landscape Ecology

Land Use Change, Economics, Landscape Ecology. Funding is available
for an 18-month postdoc position on a USDA grant at the University of
Tennessee, run jointly between Dr. Paul Armsworth (Department of
Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB)), Dr. Seong-Hoon Cho
(Agricultural and Resource Economics, University of Tennessee
Institute of Agriculture (UTIA)), and Dr. Dan Hayes (Oak Ridge
National Laboratories (ORNL)). This is an opportunity to join a
highly interdisciplinary project team and to get experience in how
ecological and economic data can be combined to address
policy-relevant research questions. The position involves modeling
land use change in the Central and Southern Appalachians, combining
the results with estimates of how land use change affects the amount
of carbon being sequestered, and then running simulations to explore
the efficacy of different payment schemes that are intended to
incentivize increased carbon sequestration on private land. We are
interested in candidates with strong quantitative skill-sets and a
PhD in a relevant discipline. The post-doc could be based in either
EEB or UTIA.
