Leave a comment

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associate to work with Dr Chris Sandbrook and Dr Liz Watson on the Development Corridors Partnership (DCP) project, funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund, in the Department of Geography, University of Cambridge.

‘Development corridors’ are increasingly being used as a strategy to promote economic growth in Africa but they face significant challenges such as uneven socio-economic and environmental impacts. DCP is a four-year collaborative research and capacity development project led by the UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC). Its focus is on development corridors in Kenya and Tanzania. The University of Cambridge team is leading on the social and political dimensions of the project, drawing on the backgrounds of Drs Watson and Sandbrook in human geography and political ecology.
