Welcome

A Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies sponsored research program

The Yale Biodiversity and Global Change (BGC) Center is an interdisciplinary hub for research and education. Its activities and events link scientists, students, and practitioners – at Yale and beyond – who are engaged in the environmental, biological, informatics, policy, or health aspects and implications of global biodiversity change. The Center is sponsored by the Yale Institute of Biospheric Studies (YIBS).

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values in our group. We aim to promote the success of traditionally underrepresented groups in science because we believe not only in the importance of increasing equity across academia, but also that a diverse team will enable a broader perspective and enhance creativity.

Those interested in joining the group should contact Anna Schuerkmann (anna.schuerkmann@yale.edu) with a CV and a brief statement of research interests.
