My term as editor of the American Journal of Agricultural Economics finished on December 31, 2017.

UBC has a policy that faculty supervisors of graduate students must have funding in place before a M.Sc. or Ph.D. graduate student can be accepted into a UBC graduate program. I currently have no funding to support in-coming graduate students or post-doctoral fellows. In addition I am currently not considering requests to supervise/host graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, visiting faculty members, etc. who have their own source of funding.
