The Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment in the School of Public and International Affair 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.
