Dear All,

A colleague is looking for someone to perform an analysis/summary of the last IPCC report as a teaching tool for undergraduates. They'll provide a pro-forma to help complete the task. See below for more details.

Mouseion is a new international company that is developing a global higher education programme in 14 disciplines, including Physical and Human Geography. We especially focus on fostering critical thinking amongst university  
students in the Global South and we already collaborate with about 500 academics worldwide.

Ideally, we are looking for a senior scholar to work on "Climate Change 2007: Synthesis Report, Contributions Of Working Groups I, II And III To The Fourth Assessment Report Of The Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change". However, we could also employ a senior supervisor working with a competent post-doc or PhD student.

The task involves writing a critical analysis of this text (about 13,500 words) following the original scheme developed by the company (which we would send you upon signature of a Non-Disclosure Agreement for your full evaluation before any mutual commitments are made). Every commission takes about 13-15 full working days to be completed and the pay rate is £ 3,400. The deadline can be negotiated around people's commitments and our schedule.

Our critical analyses of seminal texts are peer-reviewed and then used to develop engaging multimedia content for undergraduate students in universities worldwide.

I am sending you a briefing about Mouseion and a full job description for more specific information.

I look forward to receiving your reply.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Luca Marazzi
