Negative Emissions Post-doc on the Stanford campus, Available immediately
Carnegie Science Global Ecology has an immediate opening for a full-time
postdoctoral researcher. The researcher will work on a project evaluating
the potential for negative emissions through biomass energy with carbon
capture and storage (BECCS). Considerations will include availability of
land and water, trade-offs with food security and ecosystem protection,
interactions with other mitigation technologies, and implications for
near-term emission reductions. The project is analyzing factors that make
integrated assessment models "BECCS friendly" and future trends in
agricultural yields regulating BECCS feasibility. The project will culminate
with a community-based assessment informing policy arenas. The person who
fills this position can be an expert in any topic related to the work. We
are especially looking for an individual with strong skills in integrated
assessment models and agricultural assessment. The supervisors for the
position will be Chris Field and Katharine Mach.
Minimum educational qualification is a PhD in a relevant field.
To apply, please submit a letter of application, resume and contact
information for three references on-line:
