We are on the look-out for people to support our work collating and translating evidence for Nature-based Solutions, as well to conduct applied research at the interface of climate, biodiversity and human well-being. Please get in touch if you would like to join us. Volunteers are always welcome, of course – if you are looking for funding please scroll down.
Establishing the widespread use of Nature-based Solutions will take the combined efforts of a large community of researchers, practitioners and policy makers, so please let us know if you are interested in partnering or collaborating with us. Whether you wish to co-create datasets and tools, co-convene knowledge exchange workshops, do research or fundraise, we would love to hear from you.
If you are an an individual researcher, policy-maker or practitioner from the public or private sector with an interest in nature-based solutions and expertise to share, please get in touch to join a rapidly growing nature-based solutions network.

Various Oxford Colleges have Junior Research Fellowship positions, which can be found in the University Gazette. Fellowship schemes from NERC, ESRC, the Royal Society can provide substantial funding, as can Marie Curie fellowships which allow people to come from locations outside the UK.
Projects will often be co-supervised with people from other disciplines, with stakeholders identifying research questions, developing methods and delivering impact. Details about the application process are found here. The main source of funding for PhD projects is through the NERC DTP scheme.
We can offer two FHS projects to Oxford undergrads each year. There are also opportunities for those outside Oxford to gain research experience during vacations with us or our partners, but be sure to contact us well in advance.
