Two Research Associate Positions

​​​​​​The University of Manchester is seeking to appoint two Research Associates for the Sustainable Forest Transitions (SFT) project. SFT is looking for early career scholars interested in offering new perspectives on socio-environmental systems. We therefore expect you to have a relevant PhD or equivalent (or have completed your PhD by the time your appointment starts), most likely in environmental economics, political science, geography, or conservation science. However, we also welcome applications from those who have combined theoretical and data-driven approaches to address problems in other fields.
