The kick-off meeting of the project LINKAGES – Local and Indigenous Knowledge for an Amazonian Grounded (Bio) Economy – took place in 21-25 November 2022 in Brazil.
LINKAGES is a 5-year research programme funded by NWO (The Netherlands) and FAPESP (Brazil), coordinated by four former project PIs from the T2S Programme – Fabio de Castro, Celia Futemma and Eduardo Brondizio (AGENTS) and Marjo de Theije (Gold Matters). The project is built on a transdisciplinary research team composed of researchers, practitioners and local producers, and addresses how value-chains of sociobiodiversity products grounded in local knowledge can support sustainable, inclusive, and fair economies in the Brazilian Amazon.
The project is currently looking for an enthusiastic, committed, and socially engaged young scholar to join the team as post-doc. The ideal candidate has an interdisciplinary background and research experience in sociobiodiversity products’ value chain. This Post-Doctoral fellowship is funded by FAPESP, and will be carried out at the Environmental Studies and Research Center (NEPAM) at the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil.
Application deadline is 20 January 2023 (deadline extended). For more information, please see the announcement here.
