Postdoctoral Research Associate: Impacts and Human Responses to Climate Change

The Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment at Princeton University invites applications for a postdoctoral or more senior researcher to conduct research on the impacts of climate change and resulting human responses. Successful applicants should be skilled in one of two areas of research: 1) physical modeling of extreme events (such as heat waves, tropical cyclones, or coastal high water) in the context of applications to impacts on individuals and social systems, or 2) econometric or other quantitative methods applied to assessment of human migration and other sensitivities and responses to climate change. This research effort aims to combine diverse methods and lines of evidence to assess the probability of climate change impacts and outcomes. The position reports to Professor Michael Oppenheimer and will collaborate with other researchers in Princeton's Department of Geosciences and Atmosphere and Ocean Sciences Program. The appointment will be through the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. The appointment is for one year, and may be renewed pending satisfactory performance and continued funding.

A PhD is required in a related field. Salary and full employee benefits are offered in accordance with University guidelines.

Applicants must submit a CV, contact information for three references, and a cover letter describing their areas of expertise and interest. References may be contacted for the candidates who make the shortlist for this position. The submission must be online via AHIRE link.: https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/18821

The review process will commence immediately and continue until positions are filled.  This position is subject to the University's background check policy.

Postdoctoral Research Associate: GHG mitigation strategies - Co-benefits for Climate, Air Quality & Health

The Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment at Princeton University invites applications for a postdoctoral or more senior scholar to conduct interdisciplinary research on the co-benefits of various greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation strategies and energy technologies for climate, air quality and health. We seek candidates with doctoral level training in energy economics or policy, atmospheric science (including satellite data analysis and atmospheric chemistry transport modeling), or public health and with an interest and ability to bridge across disciplines and conduct integrated assessments.  Regions of focus may include China, India or the United States, or may utilize global analyses and tools.  The power, transport, residential, industrial or agricultural sectors may be examined.  The successful candidate will work under the guidance of Prof. Denise Mauzerall and collaborate with scholars both inside and outside of Princeton. The appointment will be through the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. 

The research position requires a PhD in a relevant field and does not support work towards the completion of a degree. Salary and full employee benefits are offered in accordance with University guidelines. This is a one-year position with a possibility of renewal depending on performance and funding.

Applicants must submit a CV, a cover letter describing their areas of expertise and research interests, and contact information for three references. References may be contacted for the candidates who make the shortlist for this position. The submission must be online via AHIRE link.:  https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/18841

The review process will commence immediately and continue until positions are filled. This position is subject to the University’s background check policy.

Postdoctoral Research Associate: Biodiversity Conservation

The Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment at Princeton University invites applications for a postdoctoral or more senior researcher to conduct research related to biodiversity conservation, with a particular focus on work that is focused on using ecology and the social sciences to discover practical policy solutions to particular conservation issues.

These positions report to Professor David S. Wilcove (see www.princeton.edu/~dwilcove) in the following areas of research:

(1) Conservation of declining migratory birds that utilize the East Asian-Australasian Flyway.  Special consideration will be given to applicants interested in studying the stopover ecology of migratory shorebirds along the China coast and who have field experience working with shorebirds in this region. This work will be done in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology.

(2) Socio-economic analysis of the wild-animal trade, with a focus on understanding the drivers of the trade in understudied species (excluding elephants, tigers, etc.). A doctorate in economics is desirable, as is experience doing research related to biodiversity conservation.

(3) Analysis of natural climate solutions that can be employed in Southeast Asia to simultaneously mitigate global climate change and conserve biodiversity. This work will be done in collaboration with the Center for Natural Climate Solutions at the National University of Singapore.

These research positions are open to all regardless of citizenship, and do not support work towards the completion of a degree. A PhD is required. Salary and full employee benefits are offered in accordance with University guidelines.

Applicants must submit a CV, contact information for three references, and a cover letter describing their areas of expertise and interest.
