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.
