Postdoc & Early Career

The University of Washington College of the Environment invites applications for a Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) Actionable Science Postdoctoral Fellow. The NW CASC is one of eight regional Climate Adaptation Science Centers dedicated to delivering science that helps wildlife, water, land and people adapt to a changing climate. Research supported by the NW CASC provides objective scientific information and strategies that Northwest managers of land, water, wildlife and cultural resources can use to anticipate, monitor and adapt to climate change.

Working closely with the University Director and Deputy Director of the NW CASC, the Actionable Science Fellow will play a leading role in the NW CASC's efforts to foster co-production of decision-relevant science across the Northwest. The Actionable Science Fellow will advance transdisciplinary research that addresses complex socio-ecological problems by helping implement and evaluate the NW CASC Research Fellowship Program, including facilitating regular cohort meetings and developing and delivering training modules to advance actionable science efforts by the NW CASC Research Fellows. The Actionable Science Fellow will also support NW CASC regional science dialogue by planning an annual workshop on a priority regional climate adaptation issue, in addition to other activities.

This position requires a PhD in an area of natural or social science related to climate change and demonstrated experience working at the interface of climate science and decision-making. This is a full-time, 12-month term appointment with potential for extension. Salary will be dependent on qualifications and experience.
