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.

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.
