Princeton University; Research fellowship Program - postdoctoral fellowship opportunities
Program in Science Technology and Environmental Policy at Princeton University - 2011-2012
Research Fellowship Program:
The Program in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy (STEP) at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs (Michael Oppenheimer, Director) announces its 2011-2012 Fellowship Program. STEP will award one-year research positions (with the possibility of renewal for a second year) to eligible, talented researchers. These appointments, at the postdoctoral or more senior research level, are designed to promote basic policy-relevant research under the supervision of one or more STEP faculty members. STEP faculty is soliciting fellowship applications in the following areas of interest:
Michael Oppenheimer: PHYSICAL SCIENCE OF EARTH SYSTEM: (1) Modeling of dynamic properties of ice sheets on a variety of geographic scales (in collaboration with colleagues at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, GFDL). (2) Analysis of paleoclimate proxy data for sea level, ice extent, and temperature to improve the use of analogs in forecasting future sea level rise. This project focuses particularly, but not exclusively, on proxies from the Last Interglacial; see http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v462/n7275/full/nature08686.html. DECISION THEORY and POLICY: Modeling the role of learning in decisions where structural model error is a key concern. This work will be coordinated with ongoing case studies of actual scientific learning coupled to policy decisions; see http://www.springerlink.com/content/7uw8150573197707/fulltext.pdf CLIMATE IMPACTS: Econometric and other quantitative methods applied to human migration under climate change; see www.pnas.org/cgi/doi/10.1073/pnas.1002632107
The Research Fellows Program is open to all regardless of citizenship, but requires a completed doctorate and does not support work towards the completion of a degree. STEP fellows will be eligible for salary and full employee benefits in accordance with University guidelines.
Applicants should send a CV and a cover letter describing their areas of expertise and interest via https://jobs.princeton.edu (use requisition number 1000839) The review process will commence immediately and continue until positions are filled, although not all slots may be filled.
