ESP connects over 3000 ecosystem services scientists, policy makers and practitioners who work together in more than 40 Working Groups and a growing number of National Networks on all continents. ESP regularly organises World and Regional conferences and provides many Services to further enhance the application of ecosystem services for nature conservation, ecosystem restoration and sustainable management. Partner up with ESP and join in the global effort for the future of our Natural Capital!
Come join our cluster of 2-3 postdocs working together in a multi-university-NGO collaboration to map nature’s contributions to people in Canada! Canada has ambitious conservation goals but national-scale data and the methods to model ecosystem services (ES) that are necessary for monitoring change and prioritizing actions and locations for conservation are largely lacking. Our team of postdocs will work collaboratively with NSERC ResNet, the Nature Conservancy of Canada, multiple universities, and government agencies to explore data and develop models and methods to monitor changes in ES and natural capital at multiple spatial and temporal scales across Canada.
We are currently advertising two postdoctoral positions, and likely looking to add a third shortly:
- Improving current national ES layers and expanding ES data and maps for Canada
- Monitoring and managing ES across spatial scales.
The ARIES Project, based at the Basque Centre for Climate Change in Bilbao, is hiring three new positions to support the ongoing development of the ARIES platform infrastructure and associated ecosystem services data and models. Application deadlines for these positions has been extended to 20 January 2022:
More interactive, more focused and more space for dialogues: After two years full of digital and hybrid experiences, the largest geoinformatics conference reports back with a new concept, fresh branding and compact formats.

The GI_Salzburg 2022 will take place 5-8 July 2022 and call for papers is open.
