Postdoctoral Researcher (FOROWN Project)
FOROWN – Irish private forest owners: the role of knowledge transfer and social networks.
The Post-Doctoral Fellow will research private forest owner’s management capacity, engagement with knowledge transfer events and social networks.
The project is multidisciplinary; therefore, the Post-Doctoral Fellow will need to be comfortable working as part of such a team, using mixed social science research methods. Specifically, quantitative and qualitative analysis of primary and secondary data will be used to gain a better understanding of private forest owners management capacity, engagement with knowledge transfer events and social networks. Focus groups will be used to understand current forest management practices and future intentions. In addition, the Post-Doctoral Fellow will engage with, and contribute to, social network analysis carried out by project partners.
The Post-Doctoral Fellow can be based at Teagasc Ashtown or Athenry (Rural Economy and Development Programme) and will join a project consortium with UCD.
