Job Summary

Earth Lab is seeking a Post-Doctoral Research Scholar to lead a research agenda in the following area: Social and Economic Impacts of Extremes. This targeted research area represents Earth Lab's efforts to explore natural and social system vulnerability and resilience to global environmental change, while also capitalizing of the diversity of data available to generate new insights. All postdoc positions are for one year with the possibility of extension based on performance and funding availability.

Earth Lab seeks a Postdoctoral Research Scholar on Extremes in Coupled Social and Natural Systems, with a focus on economic processes and impacts. The successful candidate must have content knowledge and data analytics skills relevant to extremes, with emphasis on economic impacts assessment in the U.S. context. The extremes focus seeks to build on the suite of Earth Lab efforts to conceptualize and analyze extreme events in coupled human and environment systems. This Post-Doctoral Research Scholar will work in the Risk and Decision-Making project as well as bridge among other ongoing science themes at the Earth Lab (Wildfire, Drought, Erosion, Human Health, and Land Use and Land Cover). This position will focus on the impacts of extreme events on social and environmental systems, valuation of those impacts and of societal responses, including analyzing the value of information in reducing impacts and vulnerability in the U.S. context. Moreover, we are interested in how coupled extreme events may further disrupt both ecological and social processes and infrastructure with special attention to the existence of threshold behaviors when the resilience capacity of a social and/or environmental system is exceeded.

The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
