VS Postdoctoral Fellowship in Valuing Local Co-Benefits for Rural Communities


  • Do you have a PhD in sustainability science, agricultural science, environmental science, education, economics, finance, sociology, rural studies, anthropology, geography, or similar?
  • Exciting opportunity to join the Valuing Sustainability Future Science Platform
  • Join CSIRO – Australia’s leading scientific research organisation!

The Valuing Sustainability Future Science Platform (VS FSP) is a substantial new 5-year investment in cutting edge research by CSIRO that will recruit several post-docs who will be embedded diverse inter-disciplinary research teams. The VS FSP aims to co-produce future pathways, measures and indicators to underpin sustainable innovation and prosperity for current and future industries and communities.

There is growing recognition that durable and ‘just’ land-based solutions to meet sustainable development goals requires measures and mechanisms that value local cultural capital and the provenance of place-based economies.  The VS FSP, the Valuing Local Provenance project focuses on a key sustainability valuation and validation frontier, and how to develop and systematically integrate locally defined co-benefits into emerging sustainability markets.

With close focus on indigenous and rural communities, this work will demonstrate if (and how) in-practice and fit-for-purpose methods can illuminate and incorporate community-identified values, local knowledge systems, place-based sustainability concerns and how those values align with larger market forces for sustainability.
