Michigan State University (MSU) is leading an initiative on university engagement for capacity building in low-carbon forest management and REDD+ in Indonesia. This is part of the large USAID LESTARI project focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and conserving biodiversity in carbon rich and biologically significant forest systems in Indonesia. MSU is seeking applicants for a funded sabbatical in this project. The successful candidate will facilitate capacity building with Michigan State University, the University of Palangka Raya in Central Kalimantan and USAID LESTARI, and likely pursue ecological or social science research related to forestlands and/or peatlands. Bahasa Indonesian language is necessary; a 6-week immersion course is available at the beginning of the sabbatical in Jakarta, if needed. Funding support is available for 6 months of salary and benefits, 8 to 12 months of living expenses, airfare and other indirect costs. Research support is negotiable. Expected start is Fall 2017. Please direct inquiries to Mr. Jay Samek, Research Scientist, Department of Forestry, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, 48823. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org; phone: 517-432-3924.
