Please see below for the advertisement for two postdoctoral positions in
the cross-sectoral coordination team of the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model
Intercomparison Project (ISI-MIP) within Research Domain 2 (Climate
Impacts and Vulnerabilities) at PIK Potsdam. It would be much
appreciated, if you could please forward this to potential candidates
and add to email lists.

Thank you!

The ISI-MIP team

The Potsdam-Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) is looking for

2 Post-Doctoral researchers

within Research Domain 2 (Climate Impacts and Vulnerabilities).
Both researchers will work in the cross-sectoral coordination team of
the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISI-MIP). The
PIK was founded in 1992 and is an internationally renowned research
institution in the areas of climate change, climate policy and climate
economics. We offer two full-time positions from 15 April, 2014 to 31
December, 2015 - subject to the availability of the project funding; a
two year extension is foreseen but currently not ensured. Salary and
benefits are according to public service regulations in Germany (E13
TV-L). The position is linked to the ISI-MIP project, which aims to
provide a framework to collate a consistent set of climate impact data
across sectors (e.g. water, natural vegetation, agriculture) and
different scales. This work is financed through the Federal Ministry of
Education and Research (BMBF). A successful applicant will work on the
coordination of the project (e.g. inclusion of new sectors) and the
following scientific focus topics:

• Development of simplified impact functions linking biophysical impacts
to different levels of global warming and atmospheric CO2 concentrations
• Cross-sectoral integration of different impact sectors
• Cross-scale intercomparison as a tool for global model improvement
• Impact model validation, evaluation of validation experiment based on
historical data
• Integration of cross-sectoral impacts in economic models, e.g. by the
development of damage functions

You will join a highly motivated team of researchers in the ISI-MIP
group (<>) at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact
Research e.V. (,>). Suitable candidates should hold a
PhD in mathematics, physics, economics, hydrology, ecology or other
impact related disciplines. The position requires good programming
skills, as well as having a keen interest in transdisciplinary research.
Interested candidates should send a CV, a half-page statement of
research interests, copies of high-school and academic certificates and
the names of two referees. Applications should arrive before 31.03.2014.
PIK seeks to increase the number of female scientists and encourages
them to apply. Disabled persons with equal qualifications will be
favorably regarded. Applications can be returned under the condition
that the applicant provides a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
