The Nippon Foundation Ocean Nexus Center, a new member organization of EarthLab in the College of the Environment at the University of Washington, invites applications for a highly motivated, independent and creative Postdoctoral Research Scholar. This is a full-time (100% FTE), 12-month term appointment, with potential for extension up to three years based on performance and continued funding.
As part of a new research program on Ocean Equity, Dr. Yoshitaka Ota, Director of the Ocean Nexus Center, is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Scholar to work within a new team of transdisciplinary scholars investigating the relationships between people and the sea, with an explicit aim to address equity and justice issues in the emergent ‘blue economy’ agenda.
The Ocean Nexus Center aims to develop evidence-based policies for sustainable and equitable ocean and society relationships by creating fellowship programs, engaging in interdisciplinary research, developing an innovative ocean network, and through building effective science communication capacity.
The Ocean Nexus Center has an additional Postdoctoral Research Scholar position available at Arizona State University and Conservation International.
