Earth Institute, Columbia University
The Earth Institute at Columbia University in New York, NY, seeks applications from innovative, doctoral candidates or recent Ph.D., M.D., J.D., or Sc.D. recipients interested in a broad range of issues in sustainable development.
Since 1973, ASME has sponsored over 100 Federal Fellows, providing them with an opportunity to serve a one-year term in the Administration or U.S. Congress. Fellows serve as independent, non-biased advisors in engineering, science and technology, bringing a nonpartisan, pragmatic approach to analysis and input which has a profound impact on the decision making process.
The selected candidate will work with SCRiM project teams to develop modeling, analysis, visualization, decision support, and educational tools. Desired areas of expertise include models of Earth system components, geophysical data visualization, statistical analysis of large datasets, optimization techniques, and development of web-based graphical user interfaces.
Potential projects for the successful candidate include (i) development of models to inform optimal and robust climate mitigation and adaptation strategies under uncertainty with learning, and (ii) development of models and methods for analyzing the transition of the energy system to meet multiple goals including low carbon emissions, low water usage, and low air pollution, with a particular fo
The successful candidate will work with SCRiM researchers and collaborators across multiple transdisciplinary projects to develop customized climate data products for climate impacts studies and decision support applications.
The successful candidate will join an transdisciplinary research team that analyzes two main questions: (i) How can paleoclimatic and instrumental records improve our mechanistic understanding of the climate system and inform climate predictions? (ii) How can this scientific information be used to improve the design of climate-risk management strategies?
