Demand-driven science: the role of knowledge partnerships in improving the public value of conservation science

The actionable science in conservation team with the Center for Biodiversity Outcomes at ASU has been awarded a 3-year NSF grant focused on actionable science, coproduction, and knowledge partnerships. Proposed research aims to understand the supply of and demand for conservation science knowledge, as well as the role of knowledge partnerships in facilitating this linkage. By analyzing experiences of knowledge users and the possibilities inherent in knowledge partnerships as a distinct organizational form, we aim to understand the organizational configurations best suited for facilitating demand-driven conservation science.

We seek a social-science oriented graduate research assistant (RA) to start in late 2021 or early 2022 for 20 hours/week. This RA will help to conduct interviews and surveys, adapt an existing research tool and help utilize it to collect data, analyze and manage qualitative and quantitative data, and help with reporting to the NSF. The RA would stay with the project for all three years funded, and ideally have this project play a role in their dissertation research. Desired qualifications include basic familiarity with qualitative social science research methods including interviews, surveys, data analysis and management, and interest in science policy, conservation and/or public value is a plus, as is fluency in Spanish.

If you are interested, please email your CV and a cover letter to the PI, Leah Gerber (Leah.Gerber@asu.edu) by September 27, 2021.
