Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Post -doctoral Fellow: Natural Pollination Services and Pest Control in Blueberry

 

The WoRCS Lab (Working on Restoring Connectivity and Sustainability; PI Claire Kremen), in collaboration with the PIEE Lab (Plant Insect Ecology and Evolution; PI Juli Carrillo) and the PPGC Lab (Plant-Pollinator and Global Change; PI Risa Sargent), seeks a postdoctoral fellow to conduct primary research on blueberry pollination in response to new agroecological management techniques being designed for blueberry orchards in British Columbia.  In addition to their primary research, the postdoctoral fellow will manage and coordinate the overall research program whose aims are to optimize both natural pollination and pest control for blueberry.  With funding from NSERC Alliance, the Principal Investigators are developing an orchard cover crop mix with the goal of promoting nesting and foraging of the principal bumble bee pollinators of blueberry, while also encouraging natural enemies that can help control Spotted Wing Drosophila, an economically-devastating pest in the region.  The postdoctoral fellow will design and implement research to document the effectiveness of the cover crop mix in promoting blueberry native bee pollinators and blueberry crop pollination, and will coordinate, co-supervise and support the research team (including several graduate students and two research technicians) investigating various aspects of the project.

The position will be based at the University of British Columbia’s Vancouver campus in the Biodiversity Research Centre, with access to resources both at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability and the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems. Field work is carried out at experimental and working farms, located both on UBC campus and in the nearby Fraser Valley (30 – 90 minutes from campus). Project partners and collaborators include the BC Blueberry Council, Delta Farmland and Wildlife Trust, and Agriculture and Agri-food Canada.

In addition to their academic credentials with a focus on pollination ecology, native pollinators and/or agricultural ecology/agronomy/agroecology, the ideal candidate will have significant skills in research project organization, coordination and management.

Job description:

Research –   Develops and implements field experiments to test cover-crop mixture effectiveness for: (1) enhancing native pollinator abundance via enhanced nesting and/or provisioning of floral resources, and (2) increasing blueberry crop pollination and production. Analyzes data using state-of-the science statistical methods and writes and submits manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals.   Contributes intellectually to design of research for pest control topics; assists in supervision of graduate and undergraduate students involved in both pollination and pest control research; co-authors collaborative research publications.

Research coordination –  Coordinates and facilitates research projects funded by the NSERC Alliance grant, working with the faculty members, partners, land-owners and managers, research technicians and graduate and undergraduate students across the entire research cycle, from project development, to implementation of the research program, to co-developing final products such as grant reports, publications, presentations and outreach materials.

Knowledge mobilization – Works with research technicians and graduate students to mobilize knowledge based on this research, including developing outreach products and participating in outreach events and programs

Young Leaders in Conservation

Why youth? Why now? Youth are the leaders for climate and for nature. They know the transformations that are needed within their communities and beyond to support resilience in nature now and forever. However, they often lack the resources, skills and opportunities to shape these changes. Too many feel that their voices and/or concerns are not being fully represented in Canadian political discussions and decision-making spaces. 1,2

That’s why we’re backing youth – the conservation movement recognizes the need to change course and leverage the knowledge, expertise, and lived experiences from community members on the frontlines of the nature emergency, especially those who are oppressed and disadvantaged.

COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted youth and also fast tracked how movements and communities develop in digital spaces. The digital workshops in this program provide a time for participants to connect with like-minded, passionate people who care for nature and wish to make meaningful connections. This is a unique opportunity to network with people outside your “bubble,” get coaching for skills relating to conservation advocacy in BC and co-create ways of catalyzing change. We know that by bridging a network of like-minded peers, we’ll have a stronger impact, together.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The program will provide youth with knowledge and skills to advocate for conservation issues in BC, key topics include:

Advocacy and lobbying skills
History of conservation in BC
Indigenous-led conservation and Knowledge
Government, community and media relations
Strategic campaign planning and management
Radical self-care in the environmental movement
Participants will also design and deliver relevant projects for their local communities, weaving together Indigenous and Western Ways of Knowing. Coached by experts from across the province, participants will join a network of advocates for the protection of 25% of BC’s lands and waters by 2025.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW
This is a four month program consisting of:

Webinar Workshops: Six virtual webinar workshops between March-April 2022. These webinars will most likely take place on a weekday evening (e.g., Thursday 6-8 PM PT). We will take group availability into consideration before finalizing scheduling.

In-person Summit: A four-day, in-person summit on the Traditional lands of the lək̓ʷəŋən (Lekwungen) People, known today as the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations (Victoria) early May 2022.

Local Project: A local community initiative in the summer, which you will lead with our support (seed funding will be provided).

The in-person Summit will consist of a Lobby Day with the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia, where participants will get training and the opportunity to speak with government officials about conservation. Accommodation, travel expenses, and meals will be provided for.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Make meaningful connections with like-minded youth who care deeply about stewarding BC’s beautiful natural spaces
Gain skills and knowledge to understand and advocate for conservation issues in BC
Receive training and engage with Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) and other government officials about conservation
Receive seed funding and support to lead a conservation initiative in your local community
Participants will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the program

WHO SHOULD APPLY?
We are seeking young leaders—ages 18-27, who permanently reside in BC and are connected to environmental issues. Our goal is to bring a diverse group of young folks together to build meaningful connections and provide skills training. CPAWS-BC believes that Indigenous, Black, and Racialized people of the Global Majority, people from working class backgrounds, women, people with disabilities, and 2SLGBTQIA+ communities must be centred in conservation. As such, we strongly encourage people with these identities or who are members of other oppressed communities to apply. This program has room for up to 25 participants and we’d like 50% or more of spots to go to marginalized folk.

*Applicants must be a resident of BC and be between the ages of 18-27 at the time of your application.
