Postdoctoral Scholar: Risk- and Decision-Analysis Climate Risk Management

The Earth and Environmental Systems Institute (EESI) at The Pennsylvania State University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar position focusing on risk- and decision-analysis to inform climate risk management. The successful candidate will join a transdisciplinary research team supported by funding from sponsors including NSF, DOE, and NOAA. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in a relevant discipline such as applied mathematics, statistics, atmospheric science, geosciences, civil and environmental engineering, or operations research. A Ph.D. in a relevant field is required.

The Postdoctoral Scholar will have considerable freedom to collaboratively design the research within the scope of projects relevant to the team’s efforts. Example projects include: analysis of the dynamics of coupled natural-human systems with the associated deep and dynamic uncertainties, quantification of climate hazards, quantification of trade-offs associated with adaptation to and mitigation of climate change, and applying and refining methods for many-objective robust decision making. Examples of current projects and relevant publications are provided at personal.ems.psu.edu/~kzk10/. This position provides unique opportunities for research, education, outreach, decision support, and professional development, as well as mentoring by a team of experts in relevant disciplines.
