We are seeking two postdoctoral researchers to join the INCASE (Irish Natural Capital Accounting for Sustainable Environments) team, one based at TCD (from May 1st 2019) and one at UCD (from September 16th 2019) (see TCD Postdoc and UCD Postdoc for job descriptions).
INCASE is an Environmental Protection Agency funded, transdisciplinary project, which will develop Natural Capital Accounting (NCA) systems in Ireland. By reviewing approaches and data sources, and incorporating world-leading best-practice and approaches, this project will develop ecosystem and environmental flow accounts for Irish catchments. In addition, we will develop tools for data visualisation, quality assessment and framework development. Furthermore, we will conduct economic impact assessment to determine the projected impacts of future policy change, using the agri-food sector as an exemplar. The project team, based at TCD, UCD, UL, NUIG, and IFNC, has expertise in the natural capital approach, ecology and ecosystem service valuation, economics, socio-economics and ecosystem accounting.
