We are seeking a Research Associate in conservation science, to work on developing a strategic approach towards achieving the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) Target 12 on species conservation. The emphasis will be on using existing standards, policies and guidelines to develop a prioritised and coordinated approach to area and species based protection at the national level.

It will examine what is needed for countries to make progress towards Target 12 and then develop a process that outlines how this can be done effectively and efficiently. This will draw on existing approaches and mechanisms for conserving species and, where appropriate, wider biodiversity.

You should have a PhD in conservation science, an understanding of global species conservation issues and an appreciation of conceptual and analytical approaches to addressing them.
