Woods Hole Research Center: Ecologist and Environmental/Resource Economist

Location: Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Source: The Woods Hole Research Center is expanding its scientific staff in the fields of ecosystem services and natural-resource economics to strengthen existing focuses on the scientific and policy dimensions of sustainable management of forests. Two regular staff positions at the Assistant, Associate, or Senior Scientist level are now open.

(1) An ecologist, biologist, or geographer is sought who will work on the relation between the condition of forest ecosystems and the "ecosystem services" they deliver. Ideal candidates will have a track record of conducting research on terrestrial ecosystems that is applied to the development of market and/or policy mechanisms for maintaining or restoring ecosystem services.

(2) An environmental/resource economist is sought who will focus on (a) the economic valuation of the products and services derivable from forest ecosystems under alternative modes of management, and (b) mechanisms for reflecting the value of these products and services in market and non-market decision mechanisms affecting the future of the forests.

Deadline: 01 October 2007: Review of applications begins
