Two postdoctoral vacancies at Shanghai Climate Change Research Center Shanghai Climate Change Research Center (SCCRC) aims to improve our understanding of the direct and indirect risks of natural disasters, such as urban flooding, heat and cold waves, typhoon and summer storms, and other extreme weather events, in Shanghai and the delta region and of how climate change will alter the risks. It will pay particular attention to climate change adaptation researches. SCCRC is based at Shanghai Climate Centre (SCC) and its research team is mainly comprised of scientists from SCC and supported by researchers from other research institutions and universities in China and abroad. Research founding is mainly from China Meteorological Administration and Shanghai government. Currently, the Shanghai Climate Change Research Center (SCCRC) seeks two postdoctoral researchers to assess climate change risks of flooding, climate change impact on transportation and energy system in Shanghai. The term of appointment is for two year. Start dates are flexible. Position 1: Assessing Climate change impact on flooding risks in Shanghai Duties: • Developing urban flooding simulation model • Assessing the climate change impact on flood and disasters • Investigating climate change risks of flooding • Evaluating city resilience to climate change Position 2: Assessing Climate Change impact on transportation and energy Duties: • Developing simulation models to assess climate change impact and risks for transportation and energy sector • Assessing urban transportation and energy sectors’ resilience to climate change Essential requirements: 1) Ph.D. in Earth sciences, geography, hydrology, atmospheric sciences, urban planning or related field; 2) Strong communication skills; 3) Strong computational skills of Fortran, Matlab or other programme languages. 4) Experiences of spatial analysis using geography information system software (e. g. ArcGIS). SCCRC will offer a competitive salary in line with qualifications and experience. The role is based in Shanghai Climate Center in Xujiahui CBD, Shanghai.
