Position Duke University, postdoctoral associate two-and-a-half year fellowship
Small-scale fisheries play an important role in food security, nutrition, livelihoods, and local and national economies. This study aims to document the global, national and subnational contributions of small-scale fisheries, and through this understanding help facilitate the implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (the Small-Scale Fisheries Guidelines), adopted by the FAO Committee on Fisheries (COFI) in 2014.

The Division of Marine Science and Conservation, part of the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University, invites applications for a full time postdoctoral associate for a two-and-a-half year fellowship, available immediately to work with an interdisciplinary team to evaluate the social, environmental, economic, and governance contributions of small-scale fisheries using available subnational, national and global data as well as data generated from case studies. The fellow will be in residence at the Duke Marine Laboratory on the North Carolina coast and will also spend time at FAO headquarters in Rome as needed. The Postdoc Associate will be mentored by Professor Xavier Basurto, in coordination with Nicole Franz, FAO and will be part of a larger team at Duke working on social and natural science fisheries and small-scale fisheries issues in particular.

To apply, submit a single pdf that includes: (1) cover letter describing your interest in and qualifications for the position; (2) a detailed curriculum vitae; (3) Up to three scholarly works; (4) names and contact information for three references.

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.
