NAVIGATE is a multi-institutional research project led by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Research (PIK) in Germany, involving partners based across Europe and internationally. The project seeks to improve existing Integrated Assessment Models used to inform climate change mitigation scenarios and climate policy-making, including to generate data for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The Earth League is an alliance of world class research institutions, led by PIK. The alliance focuses on managing anthropogenic global change according to the principles of sustainable development. The Earth League assesses and synthesizes existing information, conducts research to fill critical gaps in our knowledge, and communicates its findings to decision makers and stakeholders.
The successful applicant will be able to develop research objectives, projects and proposals; identify sources of research funding and contribute to the process of securing funds and make presentations at conferences and other events. Applicants will possess a relevant PhD or equivalent qualification/experience in a related field of study. The successful applicant will be able to operate and improve complex and data-intensive models of the earth system and multi-sectoral integrated assessment models, ideally with knowledge of macroeconomics, technological change, innovation, energy use, greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. The candidate will possess strong mathematical, computational, data analysis and programming abilities. The candidate will have experience of non-linear dynamical systems.
