117 – Research jobs available

I am establishing a new Center of Environmental Economics and Policy at the University of Western Australia. There are three post-doctoral fellow positions currently available, including one at a senior level.

The aim of the Centre is to assist environmental managers and environmental policy makers to ensure that investments in the environment are as effective as possible, through the inclusion of latest research into decision making.

The appointees will contribute to a broad range of research contributing to this aim, potentially including bio-economic modelling of biodiversity, water quality or environmental pest plants and animals; the design and implementation of environmental policy; and behavioural responses of landholders and environmental managers. The senior research fellow will also contribute to the management of the Centre.

If you are interested, or know someone who may be, further information and details on how to apply are here (Positions 2167 and 2168). That web site also contains a lot of info about Perth and about the University. People can find out more about me at http://dpannell.fnas.uwa.edu.au/ and more about a related prior project at http://dpannell.fnas.uwa.edu.au/sif3.htm.

The closing date is 22 February 2008. In a couple of weeks I will also be advertising for a research officer/admin assistant.
