Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Center for Climate Change Communication
The George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication (4C) (http://climate.gmu.edu/) seeks to hire a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. George Mason University has a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff, and strongly encourages candidates to apply who will enrich Mason’s academic and culturally inclusive environment.
This position will contribute to our ongoing Climate Matters project, a highly-successful NSF-funded initiative that is encouraging and enabling TV weathercasters to report on the local impacts of climate change. Going forward, Climate Matters reporting resources will be offered to a broader set of local journalists (working in TV, radio, newspapers and digital newsrooms).
Using a combination of in-depth interviews and quantitative online surveys, the incumbent will play a leading role in helping us assess the climate change views and reporting interests of local journalists and news directors across America. This individual may also participate in the Climate Change in the American Mind audience research initiative (conducted in collaboration with the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication), and other related climate communication research projects.
The position will initially be for one year, with renewal for a second year and potentially a third year, given satisfactory performance and available funds. Members of underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
Inquiries about the position can be sent to email@example.com/.
