Subject: [IPCC-announcement] Vacancy Announcement: IPCC WG2 Project Scientist


Working Group II of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

assesses the vulnerability of socio-economic and natural systems to

climate change, potential negative and positive consequences, and options

for adapting to it. A Technical Support Unit (TSU) provides technical and

administrative services in support of assessment deliverables. The TSU is

located at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Stanford, California,


As a core member of the TSU, a Project Scientist is sought to provide

scientific expertise to both the IPCC WG2 co-chairs and to the Task Group

on Data and Scenario Support for Impact and Climate Analysis (TGICA).

Emphasis will be on scoping, preparing, and reviewing the WG2 contribution

to the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) and any Special Reports agreed upon

by the Panel in response to specific requests of the United Nations

Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The incumbent will serve

as TSU focal point for support of the TGICA work program, including the

New Scenarios development process, ongoing data archiving and distribution

mechanisms, and training and capacity building.

Requires a Ph.D. in social or natural science discipline and 3 or more

years' experience relevant to the development and use of scenarios in

assessment of impacts, adaptation, and vulnerability to global climate

change. The specific academic discipline of the successful applicant may

be less important than practical training and experience in

interdisciplinary climate change research.

This is a term position through 30 September 2009, with possibility of

annual extensions through FY2014. Relocation expenses will be covered. To

view the complete job description and apply, visit

<> (reference job #9068 under

`Current Job Openings/Scientific'). Initial consideration will be given to

applications received prior to 2/20/2008. Thereafter, applications will be

reviewed on an as-needed basis. We value diversity. AA/EOE
