The mission of the Department of Human Dimensions of Natural Resources is to contribute to the conservation, stewardship and enjoyment of natural and cultural resources and the management of those resources in a way that produces both land health and sustainable human benefits. As a part of Colorado State University, HDNR is an equal opportunity/equal access/affirmative action employer fully committed to achieving a diverse workforce and complies with all Federal and Colorado State laws, regulations, and executive orders regarding non-discrimination and affirmative action.
A Postdoctoral Scholar position is available with an NSF-funded project investigating wildfire risk governance networks in the American West. We seek a social-ecological systems scientist or quantitative social scientist to lead project management, data analysis, outreach, and scientific writing.
The position will support research on how local-level wildfire protection planning processes interact with and shape systems-level risk governance and, consequently, the implementation of risk mitigation measures at both local and regional scales. This research aims to improve understanding of (i) how risk governance networks affect policy implementation and adaptation in collaborative planning processes and in the scope of decisions they produce, (ii) how social processes (such as learning, cooperation, and competition) affect the implementation of those decisions, and (iii) how interdependent decision-making processes affect the efficiency of risk mitigation at regional scales. Methods applied to answer these questions will include fieldwork among wildfire stakeholders (e.g., online and in-person interviews and surveys in Colorado), text analysis of planning and policy documents, network analysis, and computational modeling. In-person is preferred, but there’s potential for remote work.
