Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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. For further details on this position please contact Peter Thornton (<email@example.com>), or see the position announcement online at <https://www.ornl.gov/ornl/careers> (select "View Open Positions", and use the position number NB50526675 as the search keyword)
