WildCRU’s Amy Dickman becomes James Marsh Professor-at-Large
WildCRU is pleased to announce that Amy Dickman was recently appointed as a James Marsh Professor-at-Large at the University of Vermont. The James Marsh Professor programme selects experts from a wide range of disciplines, and enables them become non-resident faculty members of the University of Vermont, visiting there for short periods to give lectures and form collaborations. The programme (http://www.uvm.edu/president/marsh/) particularly encourages interdisciplinary approaches, so Amy was chosen for her work investigating both the cultural and ecological determinants of human-carnivore conflict in Tanzania. James Marsh Professorships run for six years and are limited to 20 people holding them at any one time, so it is notable that WildCRU now holds 10% of them, with Claudio Sillero an existing appointee.
