Description
The Smithsonian and Conservation International are embarking on a partnership to leverage the resources of both institutions to tackle landscape and seascape scale conservation challenges. With a rapidly changing global environment, it is imperative that we develop science-based solutions to address the biodiversity loss and climate change that is impacting the landscapes and seascapes upon which we depend for our livelihoods. We are looking for a fellow to help us advance this ambitious partnership; an individual that can bring together science, conservation and action to identify what’s working in conservation. We are seeking someone to innovate new methods to expedite the implementation of solutions, and develop metrics that allow us to measure impact and demonstrate the value of conservation to people and nature, allowing for economic and ecological prosperity.

Concept notes and proposals should have clear conservation applications. Concept notes due March 4, 2019. Accepted concepts will be considered for proposal development upon invitation.
