World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s leading conservation organizations, seeks a Natural Capital Postdoctoral Fellow
The Natural Capital Project is a partnership among WWF and Stanford, University of Minnesota, The Nature Conservancy, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Stockholm Resilience Centre. Through pioneering science, cutting-edge technology, and collaborative partnerships worldwide, the Natural Capital Project works to integrate the value nature provides to people into all major decisions. (Learn more at https://www.worldwildlife.org/projects/the-natural-capital-project). This position would be co-advised by the Global Biodiversity Lead Scientist Becky Chaplin-Kramer at WWF and Professor of Ecological/Environmental Economics Steve Polasky.
The Natural Capital Postdoctoral Fellow works closely with the Global Science team and with country offices throughout the WWF network to evaluate nature’s contributions to people, associated with WWF’s conservation strategies and management. This role uses a variety of qualitative and quantitative assessment approaches, modeling techniques, remote-sensing imagery and in-situ data to capture the delivery of benefits from nature-based solutions. The Natural Capital Postdoctoral Fellow also plays a key role in the Natural Capital Project partnership – an effort to map, measure, and value nature’s contributions to people using a diverse portfolio of modeling tools (including InVEST, the Integrated Valuation of Ecosystem Services and Trade-offs, the flagship tool of the Natural Capital Project).
