Postdoctoral Fellow Position on Climate Adaptation

Professor Rosina Bierbaum, University of Michigan, is looking for a 1-year
postdoctoral fellow to work on adaptation issues and options across
multiple sectors, with a focus on the United States. A key focus of this
work is to examine the intersection of mitigation and adaptation, and how
choices in one domain may affect options available in the other.  The
competing demands for land, water, and energy will be central to the
analysis.  The position is open immediately.

Familiarity with the potential impacts of climate change on various
sectors and regional adaptation activities are highly desirable.  Strong
analytic capabilities and writing skills will make the candidate more
competitive. The post-doc may be required to travel for 1-3
conferences/workshops. The postdoc will also assist Professor Bierbaum in
her work as the lead author on the adaptation/mitigation chapter for the
ongoing National Assessment.

Potential topics to be included in the assessment are:

Mitigation – tracking efficacy (indicators), intended and unintended
consequences, cost of alternative approaches, etc.
Adaptation – appropriate scale, tracking efficacy, unintended consequences
Links between mitigation and adaptation (case studies?)
Develop inventories of activity and risk based approaches
Linkages with disaster preparedness
Initiate assessments of effectiveness, e.g. design alternative approaches
to data gathering and analysis
International linkages and priorities for the ongoing Assessment

The salary and benefits package is competitive and commensurate with
record and experience. Your application package should comprise your CV,
names of three letter writers, and a writing sample. Please submit your
application materials electronically as a single .pdf file before December
23, 2011 to the following address:  rbierbau@umich.edu
