The Network for Sustainable Climate Risk Management (SCRiM 
<http://scrimhub.org>) seeks outstanding candidates for a postdoctoral 
research associate working in the area of Climate Data Products for 
Impacts Analysis and Decision Support Applications.

Centered at Penn State and linking 18 universities and five research 
institutions in six nations, SCRiM addresses the question: What are 
sustainable, scientifically sound, technologically feasible, 
economically efficient, and ethically defensible climate-risk management 
strategies? SCRiM catalyzes fundamental, mission-oriented, and 
transdisciplinary research to characterize climate risks and trade-offs 
associated with risk management instruments such as mitigation, 
adaptation, and geoengineering. The network provides unique 
opportunities for transdisciplinary research collaboration, education, 
outreach, decision support, mentoring, and professional development.

The successful candidate will work with SCRiM researchers and 
collaborators across multiple transdisciplinary projects to develop 
customized climate data products for climate impacts studies and 
decision support applications. These efforts will focus on the use of 
empirical/statistical downscaling and data-model fusion techniques to 
generate localized climate datasets that capture the broad range of 
structural, parametric, forcing, and spatio-temporal uncertainties 
identified as relevant for particular applications, including 
agriculture, forestry, transportation, and coastal infrastructure. 
Scholars with interests and/or experience in climate modeling, dynamical 
downscaling, uncertainty quantification, and data assimilation are also 
encouraged to apply.

This position is available immediately and will remain open until 
filled. Initial appointment will be for a period of one year, with 
excellent possibility of renewal for one or more additional years. The 
salary will be competitive, commensurate with experience, and will 
comply with Penn State University guidelines. Successful completion of a 
background check is required prior to employment.
