  美国纽约大学高级科学研究中心博士后职位

  A Postdoctoral Research Associate is sought to join a consortium of academic partners analyzing contemporary and future challenges to food-energy-water systems (FEWS) of the Northeastern and Midwestern United States. Extreme weather will continue to challenge the performance of FEWS-related engineered and natural infrastructure, and serve as a major force shaping future decisions on environment, economy, and national security. This project responds to this imperative by creating the C-FEWS (Climate-induced extremes on the linked Food, Energy, Water System) research framework to advance modeling, data integration and assessment capabilities in support of hypothesis-based research on regional FEWS dynamics. It is also designed to support policy-making by identifying alternative management strategies under changing climate and weather extremes over multitemporal time horizons to 2100.

  The project is seeking a creative, self-motivated, and energetic post-doctoral fellow assist, coordinate various aspects of, and be trained for a leadership position in the field.

  Eligible fields of expertise:

  Modeling, numerical methods and/or geospatial data analysis training in any of the following areas: hydrology, environmental systems analysis, environmental engineering, energy assessment, ecosystem services evaluation.

  Primary responsibilities:

  ·         Execute large-scale food-water-energy nexus modeling studies;

  ·         Data integration from Earth System science and human dimensions perspectives;

  ·         Analyze role of traditional engineering assets and ecosystem services in regional food-energy-water systems;

  ·         Under the general supervision of the Senior Research Director and PIs, perform simple-to-complex research tasks, investigations, and analytical activities independently;

  ·         Formulate scenarios of potential future trajectories of FEWS conditions and management responses;

  ·         Integrate across individual project elements (models, data) by helping to create and apply a holistic analysis framework.

  Qualifications and skills sought:

  ·         Strong numerical skills;

  ·         Modeling, data visualization geospatial analysis (GIS);

  ·         Ability to write clearly, including technical reports & peer-reviewed scientific publications;

  ·         Presentation skills for internal team meetings and scientific conferences;

  ·         Capacity to participate in team-based research and lead various aspects of the work, including project management.

  Other duties:

  ·         In coordination with project lead, execute project management on various aspects of project;

  ·         Interdisciplinary interactions with a modeling team;

  ·         Consultation with other researchers and authorities in the field as appropriate;

  ·         Interact and help mentor graduate and undergraduate students who are affiliated with the project;

  ·         Ability to travel domestically;

  ·         Work well in team environment but with ability to perform research independently;

  ·         Preparation of annual and other administrative reports;

  ·         Organize planning meetings and events, web-based communications as necessary.
