The Yale Center for Biodiversity and Global Change (BGC) 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 hosts the Max Planck-Yale Center for Biodiversity Movement and Global Change

Center activities are supported through the Yale Insitute for Biospheric Studies (YIBS),  NASA,  the EO Wilson Biodiversity Foundation and several technology partners. 

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.
