Postdoctoral Fellowship in regional climate change scenario planning for
resource management for individuals with a recent Ph.D. who is pursuing
interdisciplinary research in climate change in the North Central Region

Study Subject: Climate Change Scenario Planning

Employer: Colorado State University and the North Central University
Consortium

Position Description: We seek an individual with a recent Ph.D. received
since 2007 and who has experience in working in an interdisciplinary
team environment dealing with social-ecological systems. Candidates
whose research spans the physical sciences, natural resources, social
sciences and application to decision making of natural or/and cultural
resource management issues related to aspects of climate change are
preferred. The NC CSC is one of eight Department of Interior (DOI)
regional climate science center. Each center is a collaborative effort
between the federal government and consortium of select universities,
hosted and lead within the Natural Resource and Ecology Lab at Colorado
State University. The mission of the NC CSC is to contribute to the
National effort by providing the best available climate science and
synthesis to inform energy, land, and cultural resource management
within the North Central Domain. More information about the NC CSC, its
primary stakeholders, and the University Consortium can be found at
www.doi.gov/csc/northcentral.

The primary research objective for this position is to make climate
science more relevant to resource managers by integrating climate data
into results that can meaningful influence management actions through
scenario planning. Candidates whose research spans the physical
sciences, natural resources, social sciences with particular application
to rigorous science for natural or/and cultural resource management
issues related to aspects of climate change are preferred. Research
areas of interest include but are not limited to (1) integration of
climate data (historic, contemporary, and projections) with
ecological/biological response models and (2) quantifiable and rigorous
scenario development or simulation modeling to assist decision making
under multiple sources of uncertainty and respecting the variable and
non-stationary nature of past and projected climate. Special
consideration will be given to candidates who will collaborate with
faculty from NC-CSC Partner institutions (see list below). Information
on our NC-CSC Partners can be found at
<http://www.doi.gov/csc/northcentral/partners.cfm>. Applicants are
encouraged to contact faculty with whom they are interested in working.

The position will be filled based on qualifications with a salary in the
range of $48,000 to $60,000 annually with benefits for one year with the
possibility for renewal of a second year.
