Post-Doctoral Fellowship to link financial investments to sources of aerosols in South Asia

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 postdoc will work closely with all members of the team, to assess the value chains associated with key economic activities driving aerosol emissions, and to map the financial actors (financial institutions) implicated in the ABC dynamics via these value chains. Depending on the development of the project we also foresee the assessment of alternative financing mechanisms for mitigating ABC phenomena, as a key deliverable of the project which we would expect the postdoc to contribute to. The postdoc would also be invited to take part in the impact-related work of the project, directed at key stakeholders in the financial sector. Application deadline is 31 May 2019. Read more here
