Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has an opening in its Climate
Change Science Institute (CCSI - <http://climatechangescience.ornl.gov/>)
for a senior research scientist in climate change impacts, adaptation,
and vulnerability (IAV). Depending on the successful candidate's
expertise, an affiliation with ORNL's Urban Dynamics Institute (UDI -
<http://udi.ornl.gov>) is also possible.

Institutes at ORNL bring together researchers from across the Lab to
focus on complex and novel interdisciplinary research projects. The CCSI
focus is on Earth system modeling, terrestrial ecosystem sciences,
environmental data management and informatics, and IAV research. The UDI
focus is on understanding complexity of urban systems governed by
physical and behavioral sciences. The CCSI and UDI collaborate closely
on research to better understand the implications of climate change for
conventional and renewable energy systems and critical infrastructure,
as well as human populations in urban settlements.

CCSI's IAV research extends beyond urban systems to computational
modeling of climate change impacts at the land/water/energy nexus
including supply and demand, trade-offs associated with alternative
development pathways, economic valuation, and evaluation of
opportunities for adaptation. This includes place-based research as well
research with regional, national, or international scope that integrates
with other CCSI and UDI research capabilities and strategic priorities.
We are looking for a nationally and internationally recognized thought
leader to help lead and grow ORNL's IAV research portfolio. The
successful candidate will have the opportunity to draw upon the
substantial expertise and tools available at the CCSI, UDI, and the Lab;
including one of the fastest and most capable supercomputers in the
world; world-class climate, population, and urban dynamic models;
sophisticated data management and visualization tools; and an
exceptional research collaboration environment.
