    Hi,

    I'm permaculture teacher in Santa Catarina Federal University, southern Brazil. I'm looking for a postdoctoral in permaculture research on Autralia or New Zealand.

    Our site https://permacultura.ufsc.br/ (in portuguese)

    Suggestions are welcome.

    Best regards.

    Arthur Nanni

    interesting...

    'who watches the watchers'?...

    I can think of 3 or 4 folk who could assess a PhD in Permaculture and they are generally domiciled in Australia.... best check with them first. I do not say this as an australiaphobe permie but to be honest these guys whom I have not mentioned are absolute leaders in their field.

    I wont reach into the permie resources here but I do know their weight of intellectual mass and capability is both awesome and genuine. You would have to convince them that academia can somehow replicate their non-PhDs in Permaculture to make any more the difference to this little planet than they do now, then and only then, you may have an argument to create a thesis and be an ekspert.

    My nects to 'c' key is fooked.

    cheers,

    mike

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for your message. I'm very happy with it.

    I wonder if you could let me know the names and the e-mail concerning the people you mentioned above. I believe with the information you supplied they will be able to help me.

    Thanks again for your help.
    Arthur
