Postdoctoral Research Associate/Program in Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy
Woodrow Wilson School - 285
The Program in Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University invites applications at the post-doctoral research associate or more senior research level to develop agent-based models (ABMs) for studying agricultural adaptation, land use, and migration patterns in response to climatic variability/change and socio-economic forces. The researcher will work with scientists and statisticians to design experiments and to validate ABMs against observations. Research will have an initial focus on understanding recent historical land use patterns in South Africa, and will extend to investigations of migration flows. The research will be conducted under the direction of Professor Michael Oppenheimer and Dr. Lyndon Estes, and will build upon recent work aimed at understanding the potential ecological impacts of human climate change adaptation (see http://www.princeton.edu/~lestes/lde/Projects.html) and the influence of climate on human migration. This appointment will be for one year, with possibility of renewal pending satisfactory performance and continued funding.
Applicants should apply online and submit a CV and a cover letter describing their areas of expertise and interest, as well as names and contact information for three references. The review process will commence immediately and continue until positions are filled.
Applicants must have a PhD and significant experience in agent-based modeling, and a strong ability to work in multi-disciplinary, international collaborations. Candidates with backgrounds in agricultural economics, environmental geography, or land cover/land use remote sensing will be additionally advantaged. Extended travel to Africa and possibly within the United States will be required.
