Centre joins Princeton, Duke, UNEP and British Columbia in $13 million research programme
New research positions
The programme, which will be officially led by the University of British Columbia, will also support an international education and research network of 30 young marine scientists around the world.
As part of this, Stockholm Resilience Centre will host two new PhD positions and four post-doctoral positions. These researchers will investigate the links between global oceans sustainability, food security and governance, particularly in light of projected substantial increased protein demand due to population growth and per capita consumption.
