using synthesis sciencE to create a better future with seafood
HIRING: Post-doctoral Researcher for Environmental Impact and Sustainability of Global Food Systems We are seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher for a recently funded project at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS), University of California, Santa Barbara. The project will bring together a working group of experts in global food systems and conservation to synthesize, map, and simulate the environmental impact of feeding an ever-expanding human population. Application Deadline January 5, 2018 See PDF for details
The Conservation Aquaculture Research Team (CART) is a group of experts and analysts in ocean conservation, fisheries and aquaculture (i.e., aquatic farming) sciences. Motivated by our work from theSNAPP Sustainable Open-Ocean Aquaculture Working Group (2015-2017), CART is the next phase of using synthesis science to help guide the fastest growing food sector on the planet to work with, instead of against, the environment. With help from international and domestic partnerships in government, academia, non-governmental agencies, and industry, we want our science to align seafood production with conservation objectives across multiple scales and ecosystems.
We are the new face of aquaculture science – a scientific accelerator created by scientists that want to see positive change in a field that has garnered less attention than other food systems. If you're interested in supporting CART contact us.
