Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Job Posting Title: Director, Climate Change Science Institute, Oak Ridge National Laboratory Purpose: Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is seeking a dynamic and dedicated full-time director for its Climate Change Science Institute (CCSI). Initiated in 2009, the CCSI comprises more than 100 ORNL staff and post-graduate researchers and currently receives research funding in excess of $35M per year. The CCSI mission is to advance our understanding of the Earth system, describe the consequences of climate change, and inform policy on the outcomes of climate change responses. Our scientists engage in fundamental research that spans scientific domains from Earth system modeling, carbon cycle and terrestrial ecosystem science, climate change data science, and the analysis of climate change impacts and options for adapting to and mitigating future climate change. Our research philosophy is to integrate advanced simulation science, data analytics, and visualization with field- and lab-based observational/experimental programs to improve process-scale to global-scale coupled Earth system models to enhance decision making about climate change. Through CCSI, ORNL intends to be a global leader in interdisciplinary climate science and climate change decision support. We expect the full-time CCSI Director to provide an ongoing and evolving vision for the institute, to extend the institute's research portfolio and funding base, to solidify the institute's international reputation and identity, and to energize and mobilize ORNL's outstanding scientific assets to address climate change challenges. As a sign of ORNL's firm commitment to the long-term success of CCSI and its interdisciplinary mission, the CCSI Director will report directly to the Associate Laboratory Directors of Computing and Computational Sciences and Energy an Environmental Sciences. With the creation of this position ORNL continues to expand its longstanding commitment to climate change science.
