Bowman Postdoctoral Research Fellow: The Kansas Biological Survey seeks applicants for an AGS Bowman Post-doctoral Research Fellow for 12 months beginning Fall 2014, with possible renewal, to work with a research team of university professors and students on the KU-AGS Centroamérica Indígena Project (entitled “The Human Geography of Resilience and Change: Land Rights and Stability in Indigenous Societies of Central America”), with funding from a Minerva Research Initiative Award for University-Led Research of the U.S. Department of Defense. The project is studying indigenous municipalities and territorial jurisdictions throughout Central America to see what factors improve their cultural stability and resilience. Complete description
