We are seeking prospective master’s students interested in development economics, natural resources, food systems, land use change and international trade. Selected students will support a multi-year research project on the drivers and impacts of large-scale foreign land acquisitions for agriculture while completing SDSU’s 2-year MA program starting Fall of 2023. Students will conduct a mix of guided and independent research on the topic and receive free in-state tuition and 20 hours per week of paid employment as research assistants. Ideal candidates would be interested in eventually pursuing a Ph.D. in Economics, Agricultural Economics, or Geography and would have experience working with data in R or Stata.
Dr. Kristi Hansen is recruiting an MS student to join the Dept of Agricultural & Applied Economics at the University of Wyoming. This student will work on an NSF EPSCoR-funded project called WY-ACT (Wyoming Anticipating Climate Transitions) project. This project seeks to help Wyoming stakeholders and communities anticipate and prepare for changing water availability. The 5-year grant will support creation of integrative models showing the cascading effects of changed water availability through socio-environmental systems with implications for hydrology, ecology, economics, and dependent human communities.
Please see the announcement of a call for papers for a special issue on sustainable and affordable housing at Real Estate Economics. In conjunction with the special issue, there will also be a conference in June 2023 at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. It is described below.

By Susan Santone As a transdisciplinary field, ecological economics (EE) offers countless opportunities to contribute to other fields. But the notoriously siloed nature of disciplines, with their highly specialized content, can prevent these connections from happening. For example, EE topics such as thermodynamics and valuation of ecosystem services are unlikely to be fully understood—let…
