[Met-jobs] political science position on climate action at IASS Potsdam
The IASS has a 50 % position open for someone with a political science background in the ClimAct project.
The ClimAct project is designed to build a bridge between the scientific expertise of the IASS and climate action within national and international political processes, with particular emphasis on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) climate negotiations and the activities of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC;http://www.ccacoalition.org/
). In this context,the primary aim of the project is to connect academic knowledge on climate science and governance to on-the-ground actions that put society on a path to reaching major international goals such as theParis Agreement climate goal. In addition, the project will help develop a better understanding of the role of international institutions like the UNFCCC and CCAC in this process, especially in light of the synergies and conflicts between the related societal and political goals of climate change mitigation, improved air quality, and good health.
