Recruiting post-doc

Ecosystem services, land use, climate change

Taylor is recruiting a post-doc to work on ecosystem services and their responses to interacting changes in land use and climate.  The project will focus largely (but not entirely) on mosaic landscapes typical of New England - mixtures of forests and working lands undergoing widespread change.  We are looking for someone with a PhD in either ecology or economics.  The specific ecosystem service(s) and analytical approach are open.  The post-doc will be joining a growing group of faculty, students, and post-docs with interests in this area, both in taylor's lab and more broadly at the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics.  If interested, please email Taylor Ricketts ( and attach a CV.  Position is subject to final funding approval, and expected start date is October 1, 2014.
