Written by , posted on Tuesday June 6 2017(3 weeks ago)

The Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture, and Food Security (CCAFS) is pleased to announce a new position for a post-doctoral research scientist. The position will be based at the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) at the Earth Institute of Columbia University in Palisades, NY. The project seeks to examine gender and climate services to understand how climate services and agricultural insurance can meet the differing needs of women farmers; incorporate those insights into efforts to scale up climate services; and test the degree to which these services can be gender transformative by improving control of resources and participation in decision-making. Current evidence will be synthesized, and new knowledge and evidence will be generated to inform the design and implementation of gender-equitable services.
