Climate Adaptation Postdoctoral Fellow

Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center

Are you a researcher interested in the nexus of climate change and wildfire? The University of Washington, in partnership with the Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) and the University of Montana, is searching for a talented scientist with an interest in climate-fire-ecosystem dynamics and associated natural resource management in the Northwestern US and a passion for delivering research that informs decision-making!

The  postdoctoral fellow will join a national cohort as part of the National and Regional Climate Adaptation Postdoctoral Fellows (CAPF) Program. The NW CAPF scholar will lead regionally focused research projects related to climate-fire-vegetation dynamics. Additionally, the NW CAPF scholar will collaborate with other CAPF scholars from across the country on national-scale research and synthesis on climate-fire issues and participate in regular training and professional development opportunities, including training on translational ecology, co-production of actionable science with natural resource decision-makers and interdisciplinary collaboration. This is a two-year position based at the University of Montana that will be jointly supervised and mentored by Dr. Solomon Dobrowksi at the University of Montana and Drs. Meade Krosby and Amy Snover at the NW CASC/Climate Impacts Group at the University of Washington.

Apply today to join our dedicated team working to apply science in service of climate-resilient natural and cultural resources in the Northwest! Applications received by February 28, 2021 will be prioritized.
