Australian Conservation Foundation looking for Economic Adviser

An illustration of how economics is becoming increasingly important in environmental debates, ACF is advertising for an economist to fill the apparently newly-created position of Economic Adviser.

According to ACF:

ACF’s advocacy to protect the environment increasingly involves economic analysis, and ACF has set a long-term strategic priority to transform Australia’s economy into one that is ecologically sustainable. As a crucial component of this goal, ACF is developing a programme of work to promote alternative economic tools that incorporate environmental values, and challenging mainstream notions of every-expanding growth in consumption of natural resources.

The position of economic adviser is being newly created to assist ACF to develop this area of work rapidly, and to ensure that Australia begins the shift to economic institutions and instruments that fully recognise, account for and protect the environment.
More details. It would be an interesting job!
