Postdoctoral researcher modeling climate change and its economic impacts
The Rutgers University Earth System Science & Policy lab is seeking a climate scientist who wants to become engaged at the cutting-edge interface of global climate modeling and economic analysis. The postdoctoral researcher will join a transdisciplinary, multi-institutional public/private initiative assessing the global economic risks of climate change. The initiative is led by the same team that wrote Economic Risks of Climate Change: An American Prospectus (climateprospectus.org), which provided the technical basis for the Risky Business Project (riskybusiness.org).
The fellow will develop probabilistic temperature, precipitation, humidity and heat stress projections and collaborate with the project team to link them to state-of-the-art economic models. Familiarity with climate change scenarios and the climate impacts literature is essential, as are strong writing skills and the ability to conduct statistical analyses in Python, R or similar environments. The ideal candidate will have previously worked with the global climate models that contributed to CMIP5 and be familiar with statistical downscaling and with metrics that combine temperature and humidity to assess heat stress. Candidates should be available to start during fall 2015. Outstanding predoctoral candidates will also be considered. Interested candidates should send a cover letter, contact information for three references, a writing sample, and a C.V. to Professor Robert Kopp at robert.kopp at rutgers.edu.
