The research assistant is expected to contribute to a project aims to enhance our understanding on if, how, and why collaboration in wildfire crisis management might, or might not, lead to improved outcomes. To that end, the project team will analyze different datasets drawn from recent collaborative wildfire responder networks using new interdisciplinary network modeling approaches. The project will also need to develop other novel methods, and/or combine existing statistical approaches in novel ways. The research assistant will contribute mainly through statistical multilevel network model development, analysis of existing datasets using the software packages R and MPNet, and potentially by complementing existing dataset through new (limited) data gathering and/or integrating other pre-existing datasets. Moreover, the research assistant will interact closely and regularly with the core project team members, participate in regular workshops and meetings, and contribute in writing scientific articles. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish university degree or an equivalent degree from another country in a relevant discipline (e.g. interdisciplinary sustainability science, computational social science, network science, statistics). Application deadline is 30 September 2019.
The postdoc would form part of a transdisciplinary team of researchers aiming to link state-of-the-art models of aerosol emission sources with a novel methodology to identify key financial mechanisms and actors underpinning activities driving the ‘Atmospheric Brown Cloud’ (ABC). The position starts Dec 2019-Jan 2020. The research is funded by Formas (the Swedish Research Council for Sustainable Development), under the project: Financial Dimensions of a key climate system “Wild Card”: The Atmospheric Brown Cloud over South Asia, and is a collaboration between Stockholm Resilience Centre and the Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry (ACES), both at Stockholm University, as well as The Global Economic Dynamics and the Biosphere Program (GEDB), and University of Groningen (Netherlands).
The postdoc would be employed at Global Economic Dynamics and the Biosphere Program (GEDB), which is a research programme at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Read more and apply here
