Post Doctoral Fellow (Various locations)

CIFOR, BOGOR (INDONESIA), B. LIMA (PERU) AND C. NAIROBI (KENYA)

The Tenure Post Doctoral Fellows will be part of a core team responsible for implementing a multi-country research and action program examining the impact of forest tenure reforms in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Under the supervision of a senior scientist and a principal scientist, the three postdoctoral fellows will participate in a program that seeks to analyze the success or failure in the practice of policy and institutional innovations to provide more secure rights to forest resources, and to identify conditions under which national or local policy implementation leads to desired outcomes.

Zero-Waste Week Challenge: Day 3

It’s day three of the Zero Waste Challenge and I’ve accumulated a plastic bag that once held trail mix. Not bad, not bad. Admittedly, since I cooked all my meals at home, it has been pretty much smooth sailing

This week-long challenge isn’t all about making as little waste as possible. For me, it is about spreading awareness about food waste and the things we can do to minimize it from our lives. It is inspire others to take the challenge and think about their impact. It is a moment to self-reflect on my role and decisions as a consumer.

On the first day of the challenge, my fellow classmates saw the hanging Ziplock bag from my backpack. Just like that, it sparked a dialogue about the importance of reducing and reusing. It’s never too late to join in on the fun! Come by the Office of Sustainability and pick up your own Zero-Waste kit and spark some conversations of your own. Lastly, stay green, Tufts.
