related to the development of an international system of crediting
avoided deforestation. These projects will be conducted with
Nicholas Institute Staff, faculty at Duke, and might include
collaborators from NGOs and other research institutions. There are a
number of different possible projects. The work will include some or
all of the following: an assessment of international policy or
implementation options, an assessment of the economic literature and
case studies on national level policy options and their success to
complement a working group on this issue; assisting in a project on
linking other sustainable development

Research/Employment Opportunity- A Million Tree Planting Initiative

Under Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa a Million Tree planting
initiative has been launched. The research underway examines two
aspects of this initiative: measuring tree functions in the
environment to find out what physical effects a million more trees
will have on LA's environment, including effects on the urban heat
island, CO2 sequestration and other alleged benefits. The other
aspect is to examine the implementation of this new green approach
to LA's infrastructure using an institutional social learning
theoretical framework, as well as developing an analysis of the
potential economic benefits of such a program based on the values of
nature's services in the urban environment, using Millennium
Assessment valuation parameters. Work will involve observing
organizational change such as the development of new arrangements
and procedures, and the manner

in which the partners react to scientific information the research
team develops. We plan to use both qualitative social science
computing programs and attempt to construct Bayesian models that
represent the processes we are observing. We will use the
scientific analysis of tree functions to develop economic values, as
well as develop parallel values of well being. We are looking for
an entrepreneurial researcher, curious and motivated by this kind of
multi-disciplinary approach to environmental/institutional change,
who is flexible and willing.

Employment up to 3 years.

Job requirements:

Attending and recording meetings, transcribing important meetings
and interviews and applying a quantitative analytical tool.

Assisting in developing interview protocols analytical categories.

Developing and/or shaping Bayesian modeling protocols.

Literature reviews, presentations.

Interacting with the biophysical science researchers.

Writing and research.

Pay will be set at the appropriate Post Doc level.

Human Rights Advocate Program- Columbia University

Dear friends and colleagues:

I am delighted to announce that the application for the 2008 session
of the annual Human Rights Advocates Program (HRAP) at Columbia
University is now available. I would like to take this opportunity
to ask you to disseminate this information and application to human
rights activists based in the Global South as well as grassroots
activists in the United States.

HRAP is designed to prepare proven human rights leaders from the
Global South and marginalized communities in the U.S. to participate
in national and international policy debates on globalization by
building their skills, knowledge, and contacts. The Program features
a four-month residency at Columbia University in New York City with
a structured curriculum of advocacy, networking, skills-building,
and academic coursework.

Since 2004, HRAP has concentrated its support on individuals and
organizations that address issues broadly related to globalization.

The four-month intensive capacity building program based at Columbia
University in New York focuses on the following key issue areas:

* Environmental injustice
* Labor rights violations
* Abuses by multinational corporations
* Ramifications of resource extraction
* Public health crises
* Unsustainable development
* Intolerance, xenophobia, and social exclusion related to
globalization

Special attention is given to the above issues and their
intersection with gender, race, ethnicity, sexual identity, and/or
other sources of marginalization.

HRAP's current focus has emerged in recent years as a response to
the negative effects of globalization on those with the least access
to decision-making processes. Given their physical and symbolic
distance from centers of power, grassroots leaders are typically
unable to lobby for equitable outcomes from global policymakers.

The design of HRAP is intended to help level the playing field for
those lacking the access and relevant skills or knowledge to lobby
effectively for their causes. The Program provides advanced
training, support, and networking opportunities to respected human
rights leaders. The focus is both on strengthening the skills of the
individual Advocates and providing tools to build sustainable
organizations that advocate for disadvantaged peoples.

Participants are selected on the basis of their previous work
experience on human rights and globalization, commitment to the
human rights field, and demonstrated ability to complete graduate-
level studies. Advocates must originate from and reside in either
the Global South or the United States. Fluency in English is
required. Advocates must secure institutional endorsement from their
organizations for their participation in the Program and must commit
to returning to that organization upon completion of the Program.

This extremely competitive Program will admit approximately ten
participants. We make every effort to provide full fellowships to
cover program costs as well as travel and living expenses for
selected Advocates each year. Our staff will work with interested
candidates who have been waitlisted for the Program to identify
potential funding sources in cases where we do not yet have the
resources to provide a full fellowship.

Attached please find an overview of the Program and the 2008
application form. The 2008 HRAP will take place from the middle of
August to the middle of December 2008. The completed application is
due by October 9, 2007. Those who make it to the second round of the
application process will be asked to submit additional materials
including essays and letters of reference. Please note that late or
incomplete applications will not be accepted.

For further information or to download additional copies of the
application, please refer to our website at
http://humanrights.columbia.edu/hrap/ .

Additional information can be requested by email from
hradvocates@columbia.edu, by phone at +1 (212) 854 7372, or by fax
at +1 (212) 316 4578.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Environmental Education Program Evaluation

The University of Michigan, School of Natural Resources &
Environment is
accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Environmental
Education Program Evaluation. This position will be an 85% position
for one
year. The fellow will be responsible for designing and implementing
two
environmental education program evaluations under the supervision of
Dr.
Michaela Zint, Associate Professor of Environmental Education &
Communication. The first evaluation will seek to assess the extent
to which
a website designed to assist environmental educators with evaluating
their
programs is accomplishing this goal. As part of this evaluation,
the fellow
will work closely with five environmental educators as they
undertake an
evaluation of their own programs using the website. The fellow will
produce
a publishable article synthesizing results from these five case
studies.
The second project will consist of an external evaluation of up to 25
environmental education programs. These programs were funded by a
federal
agency to help children build meaningful and lasting connections
with nature
in response to Richard Louv's Last Child in the Woods ? Saving Our
Children
from Nature Deficit Disorder. The fellow will identify outcomes to
evaluate, design instruments to collect data
on these outcomes, analyze data, and produce a publishable article
synthesizing results from this evaluation. The fellow will work
with the 25
programs to help determine relevant outcomes, identify ways to
facilitate
the program's data collection process, and to discuss results. The
fellow's
work is expected to lead to at least two publications to be
submitted for
consideration to peer reviewed journals.

Qualifications: Candidates should be highly motivated with a Ph.D. in
Environmental Education, Education, Health Education, Evaluation or a
related field. Candidates should have excellent skills in
quantitative and
qualitative research and should have experience carrying out similar
program
evaluations. Strong verbal and written communication and
organizational
skills are a must. Candidates should also have a high level of
self-direction.

Applicants should have completed their requirements for a Ph.D.
degree and
be eligible to work in the United States or be able to secure valid
immigration status and work authorization before the expected start
date and
maintain valid immigration status and work authorization throughout
employment. The fellowship offers a funded salary plus an excellent
benefits
package. The University of Michigan is a Non-Discriminatory
Affirmative
Action Employer.

Send letter of interest, vitae, sample publication, and three
letters of
support to Michaela Zint, Ph.D., School of Natural Resources and

Law School Admission Council Research Grant Program

The Law School Admission Council Research Grant Program funds
empirical
research on legal training and legal practice broadly viewed. This
includes
the study of precursors to legal training (including demographic
variables),
all varieties of legal training itself and the work that lawyers,
judges,
law teachers, and other legal professionals do after they complete
their
training ("law jobs").

The program welcomes proposals for comparative research proceeding
from any
of a variety of methodologies, a potentially broad range of topics,
and
varying time frames. Proposals will be judged on the importance of
the
questions addressed, their relevance to the mission of LSAC, and the
quality
of the research designs. Eligible investigators need not be members
of law
school faculties. Proposals from interdisciplinary teams of law
faculty and
empirical researchers are strongly encouraged. Comparative proposals
about
topics outside Canada and the United States in part should include
some
explicit connection to legal education or professionals within those
countries (e.g., foreign student study in American or Canadian law
schools
or aspects of legal transplants affecting law and legal
institutions).

Although the program supports only empirical research, a meritorious
project
could be informed by any disciplinary perspective and be guided by
any of a
variety of methodologies. Applicants may use methodologies derived
from
anthropology, criminology, demography, economics, history, political
science, psychology, and sociology. Projects can be qualitative or
quantitative, cross-sectional or longitudinal. They may involve
surveys,
experiments, correlational methods, systematic observations,
ethnography,
and so on. The program, however, requires that any project that is
funded be
planned and conducted in accordance with the best social scientific
standards that are applicable to the type of research in question.

Some types of projects are not eligible for funding under this
research
grant program. Examples of projects that would NOT be funded include
doctrinal studies (e.g., investigations into points of substantive
law),
curriculum development or evaluation for a particular law school,
preparation of casebooks, and other course-specific material.
