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 Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
