ISS and Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ) seek to fill several fully-funded PhD positions to join an exciting and dynamic multidisciplinary group conducting research on the political ecology and ecological economics of deforestation in the Amazon in Brazil, Ecuador and Peru.
Successful candidates will be expected to develop and pursue their individual PhD research while contributing to a project carried out by an international consortium of academics, activists and non-governmental organizations.
Given the interdisciplinary nature of the broader project, we are particularly interested in candidates with an interdisciplinary background as well as willingness to conduct long‐term participatory field research in the Amazon.
The selected candidates will pursue their degrees as part of the ISS PhD in Development Studies.
Application deadline: The application deadline is 30 October 2017.
