Program in Science Technology and Environmental Policy at Princeton University - 2013-2014
Research Fellowship Program:
The Program in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy (STEP) at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs (Michael Oppenheimer, Director) announces its 2013-2014 Fellowship Program. STEP will award one-year research positions (with the possibility of renewal for a second year) to eligible, talented researchers. These appointments, at the postdoctoral or more senior research level, are designed to promote basic policy-relevant research under the supervision of one or more STEP faculty members. STEP faculty is soliciting fellowship applications in the following areas of interest:

§  Michael Oppenheimer:  PHYSICAL SCIENCE OF EARTH SYSTEM: (1) Modeling of dynamic properties of ice sheets on a variety of geographic scales (in collaboration with colleagues at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, GFDL). (2) Analysis of paleoclimate proxy data for sea level, ice extent, and temperature to improve the use of analogs in forecasting future sea level rise. This project focuses particularly, but not exclusively, on proxies from the Last Interglacial; see http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v462/n7275/full/nature08686.html. DECISION THEORY and POLICY: Modeling the role of learning in decisions where structural model error is a key concern. This work will be coordinated with ongoing case studies of actual scientific learning coupled to policy decisions; see http://www.springerlink.com/content/7uw8150573197707/fulltext.pdf
CLIMATE IMPACTS: Econometric and other quantitative methods applied to assess human migration and other responses to climate change; see www.pnas.org/cgi/doi/10.1073/pnas.1002632107<http://www.pnas.org/cgi/doi/10.1073/pnas.1002632107> and http://www.springerlink.com/content/j44738674m504175/fulltext.pdf

§  Denise Mauzerall : :  CHEMISTRY - CLIMATE MODELING (in collaboration with colleagues at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, GFDL and Civil and Environmental Engineering, CEE, department).  Research on:  1) sources, transport, health and climate impacts of black carbon including impacts on surface energy/mass balance of glaciers and effects on water resources and examination of benefits of various mitigation strategies; 2) benefits of various industry level mitigation strategies for methane and other pollutants for global ozone, aerosols and climate; 3)  benefits for air quality and climate of increased penetration of renewable energy.  4) benefits of mitigation strategies for nitrous oxide and methane from agriculture.  Scientific research is oriented to inform policy decision-making.
The Research Fellows Program is open to all regardless of citizenship, but requires a completed doctorate and does not support work towards the completion of a degree.  STEP fellows will be eligible for salary and full employee benefits in accordance with University guidelines.
Applicants should submit a CV , contact information for three references and a cover letter indicating the faculty they wish to apply with and describing their areas of expertise and interest. The submission must be online via  https://jobs.princeton.edu<https://jobs.princeton.edu/>  (use requisition number #1300092  for Professors Oppenheimer or Mauzerall ) ( use requisition number # 1300090 for Professors Wilcove or Glaser) The review process will commence immediately and continue until positions are filled.
