As we enter a new decade, the global challenges that we face are more complex, frequent and intense than ever. The Center’s mission is to reach One Billion People with resilience solutions to urgent challenges including natural disasters, migration, extreme heat and water/food insecurity by 2030. But this cannot be done alone.
The Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center is seeking a postdoctoral fellow with an interest in climate risk and resilience and a strong background in social science and quantitative skills. Working with experts at ETH Zurich and the Council, this individual will contribute to the further development of an existing tool (Economics ofClimate Adaptation method implemented in CLIMADA) that will rapidly assess the impacts of climate change, along with the economic and social effectiveness of potential climate adaptation interventions, indifferent geographies. This individual will use her/his knowledge of modeling and Python programming to incorporate existing datasets and models into an easily usable analytical tool that can be applied by project planners and local government officials to determine the most cost-effective interventions. The tool will also include social vulnerabilities, gender, and biodiversity as factors, as well as ecosystem-based adaption options.
