INSR is seeking a Volunteer Research Assistant to collate and review all available information on existing certification schemes for native seed, at the global level. Anticipated research methods are literature review; online research; email, phone, and survey communications.
The Research Assistant will summarize the results of this research in a report (five pages maximum).
Novel findings from the report will be archived by INSR for their consultation and use and, if relevant, will be integrated into a chapter of the forthcoming publication International Standards for Native Seeds and into conference presentations, for which the research assistant will be a contributing author.
The Research Assistant will gain valuable experience and skills in conducting and summarizing a literature review and associated data.
The Research Assistant will learn about global native seed certification schemes and stakeholders.
Through this project the Research Assistant will contribute to improving the understanding of native seed certification schemes which improve the quality and outcomes of seed-based restoration.
