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 (https://cpree.princeton.edu/people/michael-oppenheimer) and will collaborate with other researchers in Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, as well as the Department of Geosciences and Atmosphere and Ocean Sciences Program. The appointment is for one year, starting on August 1, 2020, 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/13841.

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