SCRiM catalyzes fundamental, mission-oriented, and transdisciplinary research to characterize climate risks and trade-offs associated with risk management instruments such as mitigation, adaptation, and geoengineering. The network provides unique opportunities for research, education, outreach, decision support, and professional development.
The successful candidate should have a Master’s degree in a relevant field (Ph.D. preferred) and a demonstrated record of achievement in scientific computing.
