The Food Project is an Equal Opportunity Employer that is committed to creating an inclusive organization. We actively seek a diverse pool of candidates, including people of color, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ applicants.

About The Food Project:
The Food Project?s mission is to create a thoughtful and productive community of youth and adults from diverse backgrounds who work together to build a sustainable food system. Our community produces healthy food for residents of the city and suburbs, provides youth leadership opportunities, and inspires and supports others to create change in their own communities.

To fulfill this mission, we blend youth development, community food access, and sustainable agriculture into a synergistic model to achieve multiple, intertwining goals.

Each year, a diverse group of approximately 120 youth leaders from the cities of Boston and Lynn and their surrounding communities to work closely with one another in year-round activities as they grow and distribute healthy food, gaining leadership skills and learning about social justice, agriculture, diversity, and anti-oppression. The Food Project offers one of the very few paid jobs that provide meaningful experiences for high school-age students and helps them understand the complexities of the food system. They partner with Food Project adult staff and members of the community to make real-time impact on the local food system and change it for the better. Farms provide the foundation for this work, from our 70+ acres of urban and suburban farmland to our 10,000 square-foot greenhouse in Roxbury. With the help of 3,000+ volunteers, The Food Project?s youth and staff grow more than 250,000 pounds of fresh produce each year.

The Food Project has pioneered a regional model for the production and distribution of fresh, healthy produce to address the inequities of food access in underserved communities. We are the largest regional farming and food access organization in Massachusetts. We believe that urban farming is important but that it alone will not provide enough healthy food to meet the needs of local residents.

The Food Project is also a resource center for organizations and individuals worldwide. We provide unique capacity building for organizations and educators who learn from The Food Project?s expertise through materials, youth training, and professional development opportunities. Even projects completely unrelated to farming draw on our methods for building inspired, diverse, and productive youth communities.

RESEARCH ASSOCIATE
(Project Title: ‘Political ecology of the green economy on Palawan Island’) REQUIRED – January 2015 Start

BACKGROUND. With support from the Australian Research Council (ARC) and the University of Melbourne and in partnership with the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) and Palawan State University (PSU), we are conducting research on farmer responses and adaptations to changes in environmental governance (REDD+, etc.) and cash cropping (palm oil, rubber etc.) on Palawan and Leyte Island, the Philippines. We are looking for suitable candidates for a 2-year Research Associate position in this project.

PURPOSE. Under the supervision of the Chief Investigator, Wolfram Dressler, and Principal Investigators, Professors Juan Pulhin and Michael Pido, the Research Associate will assist in collecting and analysing data on governance, land use change and social movements in the context of the emergent ‘green economy’ of the Philippines. The specific focus concerns indigenous and migrant farmer responses and adaptation to the ‘double exposure’ of boom crop production and green governance in the uplands of Leyte and Palawan. Key analytical themes include: the political economy of land concessions and leases for palm oil systems on indigenous lands; cash cropping plantations, ‘haciendas’; local social movements for and against cash cropping; alternative livelihood schemes; broader and localized impacts of environmental governance on local livelihoods, among others.

An important component of this research involves examining the impact of land use change on coastal livelihood dynamics. This research component will be partly funded under a new ARC Discovery grant entitled ‘Seafood Commodity Chains in the Philippines’ (Fabinyi, Dressler and Pido).

Brown University’s Institute for the Study of Environment and Society (ISES) seeks candidates for one or more distinguished postdoctoral positions in interdisciplinary environmental science. ISES was founded in 2014, building on strength across campus in interdisciplinary study of environmental topics. It includes over 30 Faculty Fellows from 12 Departments across Schools and Divisions at Brown. The postdoctoral fellowship program continues and builds on the Voss Postdoctoral Fellows program previously managed by the Environmental Change Initiative at Brown. ISES organizes its research activities into four themes: Natural Systems, Food and Water, Human Health and Well-Being, and Equity and Governance. Postdoctoral Fellows will be expected to work within one or more of these themes, and to be mentored by two Brown University Faculty, at least one of whom is an ISES Faculty Fellow.

Appointments will be in ISES (rather than in a Department) and will have an expected term of two years starting in July 2015 or soon thereafter. Fellows receive a salary of $50,000, plus benefits and a discretionary fund of $5,000/year in addition to any research funds that may be directed to the project by mentors.

Requirements for the positions include a Ph.D. in an environmentally-related discipline, the intellectual flexibility to reach across fields, ability to take initiative and work independently, and demonstrated interest in interdisciplinary environmental research. To apply, each candidate must contact two faculty members working in different fields to serve as mentors, work with mentors to develop an independent research project that advances the research interests of both mentors and candidates, and secure a letter of support from both mentors. At least one mentor must be a Faculty Fellow of ISES (http://brown.edu/academics/institute-environment-society/about/people/faculty-fellows) and the other must be a regular faculty member of Brown University.

PostDoc with Emilio F. Moran in Brazil

The Thematic Project “Social  and Environmental Processes associated with the Construction of the Belo Monte Hydroelectric Dam in Brazilian Amazonia”,  with funding from FAPESP, offers a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at NEPAM in the Universidade Estadual de Campinas (Unicamp). The fellowship holder will work in the interdisciplinary area of human-environment research. The work will focus on the impacts of Belo Monte on the riverine populations near Altamira that will be affected by the reservoir that will flood many riverine communities. The postdoc will evaluate the social and economic system of these traditional populations during the process of dam construction, how their lives will be changed, and where they are  resettled. In theoretical terms, the postdoc will gain experience with new approaches to human-environment research, in order to better understand how people make decisions and how they adapt to a situation of rapid environmental, social and economic change.

The Project is coordinated by professor Emilio F. Moran,  together with Profs. Ademar Romeiro, Lucia Ferreira and Leila Ferreira of NEPAM at Unicamp, and Prof. Jose Antonio Herrera of UFPa, Altamira Campus.This thematic Project is parto f a new special program Excellence Chairs at FAPESP.

The postdoc will collaborate with another Postdoc that will focus on the urban population of Altamira since many riverine people are or will be urbanized. It is expected the postdoc will spend a minimum of four months a year in the riverine communicities, to work with other team members, facilitate the field work of the entire team, and to travel to Michigan each year to coordinate publications with the PI. The PI needs to have fluent knowledge of Portuguese, working knowledge of English, previous experience with rural and riverine populations in Amazonia, and be in the field for long periods.

The selection process will occur in two stages. In the first stage, the Project leader will evaluate the credential submitted by applicants and in the second stage, the evaluation will be based on a personal interview with the top candidates. Interviews will be scheduled in Campinas between Oct. 16 and 19, 2014

To apply, the candidate needs to send an application letter explaining qualifications and interest in the Project, copy of an uptodated curriculum (Sumula), a copy of the PhD diploma, and two letters of recommendation addressed to: moranef@msu.edu Deadline for applications is October 15, 2014.
