This 23-month research project will investigate the effectiveness of protected areas as biodiversity conservation tools. It is expected that this project will contribute to more accurate measures of the past impact and future value of protected areas, guiding and informing priorities for policy-making.
The recruited researcher will investigate the effectiveness of Protected Areas as biodiversity conservation tools, particularly those covering Key Biodiversity Areas, and the extent to which they ensure the long-term persistence of the biodiversity within their boundaries. The research will have a large-scale scope (continental to global). Depending on the interests of the recruited researcher, it may focus on either terrestrial or marine Protected Areas, or both. In order to take advantage of the best existing datasets on the spatial distribution of species, the project will focus on vertebrate species, particularly birds. The fellow will be responsible for developing the details of the project in collaboration with the supervisors.

The nature of the funding means that there are very strict conditions of eligibility. Before applying, please make sure you read the conditions of eligibility to this position: http://www.inspire4nature.eu/newposition/
The recruited candidate will become one of 15 fellows in the Inspire4Nature project (http://www.inspire4nature.eu/), a unique training programme at the interface between academic excellence and the world of international biodiversity conservation organisations.
This project is based at the Centre d'Ecologie Fonctionnelle et Evolutive, in Montpellier, France (supervised by Ana Rodrigues, CNRS Senior Researcher). The project is in strong collaboration with BirdLife International (supervised by Stuart Butchart, Chief Scientist, and Paul Donald, Global Science Coordinator) and the UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC; supervised by Nina Bhola, Senior Programme Officer).
Constraints and risks
The successful candidate will work full time and exclusivity for this project. The project involves regular national and international travels, in particular to Cambridge (UK) but also participation in the 2020 World Conservation Congress (in Marseille) and the 2021 International Conference on Conservation Biology (in Africa, location to be decided).
