Position PhD fellowship available in new Ecology, Evolution, Ecosystems, and Society (EEES) graduate program at Dartmouth College
We have a Ph.D. graduate fellowship available to begin Fall 2017 in the Ecology, Evolution, Ecosystems, and Society (EEES) graduate program at Dartmouth College. The student would join an ongoing research program with environmental studies professor Michael Cox on community-based fishing and rice farming in the Dominican Republic. The successful candidate will have a background in an environmentally-oriented social science and a desire to integrate applied social and ecological research. Extensive fieldwork in the Dominican Republic will be required, and as such a high level of Spanish fluency with substantial speaking experience is also required. The new EEES graduate program at Dartmouth College offers an interdisciplinary intellectual environment, ample resources for graduate students, and a committed faculty. To initiate an application, email a CV and statement of interest to Michael Cox (Michael.e.cox@dartmouth.edu). Please forward this to anyone who might be interested.
Announcement Learning for Resilience: insights from Cambodia's rural communities
This publication emerged from four years of sustained research by partners in the Food Security, Climate Change and Natural Resources Management in Cambodia research program. In implementing this major program, the Learning Insti tute received financial support from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada and acted as a grant-making organization for partners.

This book summarizes lessons learned from rural communities about ways they have tried to build resilience in the face of changes that have affected their social-ecological systems. The research program consists of a diversity of projects spanning the country and focusing on a wide variety of themes and issues. Each project addresses specific dimensions of the nexus of 'climate change-food security-natural resources management' but they are integrated under one common research framework.

It was primarily witten by Khmer teams of researchers and was edited by Dr. Jean Christophe-Diepart and Ronald W. Jones for the Learning Institute in Phnom Penh.
