*Two Postdoctoral Positions*
Integrated Assessment of Climate Change

Earth and Environmental Systems Institute
The Pennsylvania State University, University Park Campus

Two postdoctoral positions in integrated assessment of climate change are
available in the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute at The
Pennsylvania State University. The successful candidates will join a
transdisciplinary research team that analyzes climate driven
vulnerabilities, risks, and potential adaptation strategies in areas such
as water supply, flood control, forestry, and agriculture. The ideal
candidates will have a strong quantitative background (e.g., Earth
sciences, applied mathematics, statistics, operations research, or
physics). Prior exposure to areas such as integrated assessment modeling,
risk analysis, or decision analysis would be an advantage, but is not
required. Successful candidates must be interested in and able to
collaborate on transdisciplinary research involving decision analysists,
Earth scientists, economists, engineers, statisticians, and philosophers.
Postdoctoral scholars will have considerable freedom to collaboratively
design the research in the areas outlined above with a mentor network
spanning the relevant academic disciplines. Information about ongoing
projects as well as relevant publications can be found at
http://www3.geosc.psu.edu/~kzk10/. The positions are part of a larger-scale
hiring initiative (see http://scrimhub.org/opportunities/employment/). Both
positions are available immediately and will remain open until filled. The
initial appointment will be for a period of one year, with excellent
possibility of renewal for one or more additional years. Please upload
cover letter, CV, statement of research interests, copies of two relevant
manuscripts, and contact information for three professional references. For
questions about the potential projects, please contact Dr. Klaus Keller
klaus at psu.edu.
