Vietnam Climate Fellow

Location: Management and Engineering Technologies International, Inc. (METI), Hanoi, Vietnam
Application Deadline: 15 September 2021

Management and Engineering Technologies International, Inc. (METI), in support of the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) Office of International Programs, is looking to hire a Vietnam Climate Fellow to provide long-term technical assistance for forest and climate change Measurement, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) systems.

Postdoctoral Fellow – Water Accounting and Hydrology

Location: IWMI headquarters in Colombo, Sri Lanka or at one of the institute’s major regional offices in Africa
Application Deadline: 20 September 2021

The International Water Management Institute (IWMI) invites applications from highly motivated early career scientists trained in spatial hydrology, remote sensing and water accounting to be part of a growing team of experts developing tools for water accounting and water balance assessments applicable to a range of scales (from field to basin).
As part of a multicultural, interdisciplinary team, the Postdoctoral Fellow (PDF) will contribute to the scientific development of approaches and applications for water resources assessment and allocation across multiple spatial scales, in order to gain an improved understanding of availability and use of water resources in Asia and Africa.

WCRP Academy Lighthouse Activity Co-Chair

Location: Not Applicable
Application Deadline: 30 October 2021

The WCRP Academy Lighthouse Activity is the recently formed research training advisory and coordination arm of the World Climate Research Program (WCRP). It is led by two co-chairs and a core science team, who oversee the work of the activity and further evolve its science plan.

The WCRP Academy co-chair will direct the development of this important new Lighthouse Activity, with the key aim of increasing the breadth and quality of climate research training available.

Postdoctoral Scientist

Location: Institute for Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences, Gothe University, Frankfurt, Germany
Application Deadline: 1 July 2021 or until position is filled

The PostDoc candidate will work in project B03: Deep exchange with the UTLS: the Tibetan pipe on “Multi-scale water vapor/passive tracer transport over the Himalayas-Tibetan Plateau with an ICON-based modeling chain”.

The project aims to improve the understanding of and quantify the role of the highest mountain ranges and plateaus in the transport of water vapor, other trace gases, and aerosols between the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) and the upper troposphere/lower stratosphere (UTLS).

Assistant Professor Position-Climate Resilience Specialist

Location: College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences, Clemson University, Clemson/Pendleton (SC), USA
Application Deadline: 31 May 2021 or until position is filled

The Agricultural Sciences Department, within the College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Life Sciences (CAFLS) at Clemson University, is seeking to fill a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the area of Climate Resilience. This position is foundational to a state-wide, strategic water initiative. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a nationally recognized, externally funded Research program on water and climate resilience. She/he will work within interdisciplinary teams and complement three recently hired Assistant Professors located at the SC Water Resources Center focused on water resources modeling, economics, policy, and sustainable water use.

ES197 NASA Earth Sciences Research Results Coordinator

Location: NASA Headquarters, Washington DC, U.S.A.
Application Deadline: Position remains open until filled

This position supports the Research and Analysis (R&A) component of NASA’s Earth Science Division (ESD), focusing on the content development based on results coming out of the R&A program and ESD management. A significant focus will be on the maintenance and evolution of the “results portal” that was developed in order to provide a consistent and user-friendly way for sharing of results between researchers, communicators, and managers. The successful candidate will coordinate with others involved in results dissemination and communication for the various components of ESD and work to assure integration and consistency of relevant products.

Researcher in Climate Modeling at the SWIO-Energy Project

Location: Universié de La Réunion, Saint-Denis, France
Application Deadline: Position remains open until filled

In the framework of a project of the regional cooperation programme “INTERREG V 2014- 2020” (European funding), the University of La Réunion (UR), in partnership with the University of Mauritius (UoM), is seeking a scientist in regional climate modeling for climate studies in the Southwest Indian Ocean.
The main objective of the SWIO-Energy project is to study the impact of climate change on renewable resources (solar, wind) at the local scale over La Réunion and Mauritius using ground measurements, satellite imagery, and simulations from regional climate models. The researcher will 1) work in collaboration with and under the responsibility of the project manager, himself overseen by the scientific manager of EnergyLab in charge of the project; and 2) interact with the study engineer in scientific calculation of the laboratory and the study engineer in data processing recruited as well on the project.

To apply, please send a letter of motivation and a CV to:
Dr. Béatrice Morel, beatrice.morel@univ-reunion.fr
Patrick Jeanty, patrick.jeanty@univ-reunion.fr
Include the reference “Climate modeling researcher/SWIO-Energy”.
