Tailored opportunities: Post Doctoral Fellowship- Multi-disciplinary research in climate adaption


The Global Adaptation Initiative at Notre Dame (ND-GAIN) is looking to hire two postdocs.  At ND-GAIN, we think that there is great opportunity to couple the human with the physical/environmental in the realm of climate adaptation. The specific intellectual focus is flexible and could range from adaptation efforts to confront climate driven infectious disease, how social adaptation influences climate driven hydrological processes, how adapting to food, energy and water stress/collapse can influence observed social/armed conflict, or any number of other topics at the intersection of human and physical adaptation questions. ND-GAIN would provide an interesting and interactive environment, embedded within the Notre Dame Environmental Change Initiative (ND-ECI). This postdoctoral opportunity also provides the possibility of joint mentoring by a faculty member from your primary discipline along with a political scientist. The initial position would be for one year with the possibility of a 2nd year renewal.


Ideal candidates would be trained in Biology, Ecology, Environmental Science or Environmental Engineering while having a strong foot in the political or other human sciences.


Deadline for Application is February 15, 2018


Applicants should send a single PDF document, including a cover letter explaining how their research experience and trajectory could contribute to the project, along with a CV and names of three references via email to eci@nd.edu.  Please include “Application: ND-GAIN PDF” in the subject line.
