The University of Arizona Office of Research, Discovery and Innovation, in collaboration with the Institute of the Environment, the Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy, and the College of Science recently established a postdoctoral cluster initiative – Bridging Biodiversity and Conservation Science (BBCS): Forecasting Future Operating Environments.

The program will mentor postdoctoral researchers through collaborative, interdisciplinary teams to create novel synthetic research in biodiversity and conservation science and other fields of study, specifically public health, epidemiology and emerging diseases; public policy, public administration, and governance; national security; or informatics.
