Journal Articles for Global Commons Stewardship Index 2022

- trade in endangered species with CITES data
- deforestation with Global Forest Watch data
- fisheries data with Sea Around Us data (position filled)
The task this Fall is to select an appropriate journal and draft compelling manuscripts describing the importance of these metrics, the methodological innovations, and illustrating the results. RAs that contribute significantly to the drafting of a manuscript will be listed as a co-author on the journal publication.
Job Requirements: Written scientific communication, ability to set timeline and meet milestones. Preferred but not required: Subject matter knowledge
Compiling Sustainability Dataset Attributes
Due to sustainability data being siloed and the lack of incentives for structured data sharing, it is often difficult and time consuming to locate needed datasets. Fast access to quality sustainability-related data is critical to inform decision making to safeguard our planet and its people. This fall, the Data to Accelerate Sustainability Hub (DASH) RA team will focus on compiling the attributes of timeseries sustainability datasets at the national level. When loaded into a database platform, this will enable users to ‘search within the data’.
There are 4 positions available. DASH RAs will work as a team, with one RA appointed as team leader.
Job Requirements: Some familiarity with R code (and willingness to learn).
Preferred by not required: familiarity with relational databases (SQL etc.)
