Job Category: Scientific
Division/Program: ISSE
[Job #6177, at Foothills Lab]
Please Note:

This is a full time new position. Initial consideration will be given to
applications received prior to November 20, 2006; applications received
later will be reviewed on an as needed basis.

Applicants should include a cover letter, current curriculum vita and the
names of three professional references whom we may contact.

It is intended that the successful candidate will be appointed as a
Scientist II or Scientist III, depending upon qualifications.
Appointments to Scientist are not automatic, and are made in accordance with
the NCAR scientific appointments policy.

NCAR - Institute for the Study of Society and Environment (ISSE)


Basic Job Function:

Conducts research on the science-society interface related to weather and
climate. Collaborates closely with other ISSE, SERE, and NCAR staff and
university colleagues on interdisciplinary research pertinent to ISSE's
goals and mission.


Additional information:

Social Scientist: This is a full time mid-career position involving social
science/interdisciplinary research (e.g., sociology, human geography,
economics, political science, policy analysis, demography,
anthropology) designed to help move ISSE into a position of national and
international recognition and leadership in research integrating
human-environment interactions with atmospheric and Earth system dynamics.

Background Information: ISSE is an interdisciplinary research institute
within the Societal-Environmental Research and Education (SERE) Laboratory.
ISSE's mission is to improve the base of knowledge about societal
implications of atmospheric and related environmental processes so that
decision-makers might better understand, anticipate, and respond to
atmospheric science-related issues, such as climatic change or weather
extremes.

ISSE goals are to:

(1) Conduct research that integrates human-environment interactions with
atmospheric and Earth system dynamics;
(2) Define and implement science projects and knowledge products for use in
decision-making, outreach, and education;
(3) Conduct participatory research on science-society interactions to
develop conceptual frameworks for improved interactions between science and
society, and to inform geophysical research at NCAR/UCAR of societal
research needs;
(4) Act as integrative force across NCAR and within the University
community, and inform researchers in earth-sun system dynamics of societal
needs to maximize the societal benefit of their research.

These goals are implemented within the context of five broad research
themes:

      * assessment methods and tools;
      * climate-ecosystem-human interactions;
      * use of scientific information in decision processes;
      * vulnerability, resilience, and adaptation;
      * integrated science and regional applications.

A comprehensive overview of the current ISSE vision and program activities
can be viewed at: http://www.isse.ucar.edu.


Duties Include:

      * Conducts innovative social science research contributing to a
collaborative program focused on integrating social, biological and physical
sciences.
      * Publishes results of research, and communicates research findings to
diverse, as well as peer-reviewed audiences.
      * Actively seeks extra-mural funding to aid in supporting and further
developing the ISSE program.
      * Assists in developing interactions and collaborations with other
NCAR and UCAR Office of Programs divisions and programs and beyond with the
wider university community.
      * Contributes to ISSE, SERE and NCAR scientific outreach and community
development activities.


Requirements Include:
Education and Experience:

      * Ph.D. in a social science discipline, or equivalent experience.
      * At least 5 years research experience in an interdisciplinary
setting.


Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:

      * National recognition as a scholar and leader in the investigation of
the science-society interface related to atmospheric, environmental and/or
Earth system science;
      * Demonstrated excellence and productivity in scientific research as
evidenced in refereed scientific journals and other media;
      * Ability to contribute to establishing and maintaining effective
multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary research programs involving both
in-house and multi-institutional collaborative teams;
      * Ability to prepare proposals for research and outreach opportunities
and to manage awarded projects;
      * Demonstrated skill in the written and oral communication of academic
programs to diverse groups, including fellow researchers, policy makers and
lay audiences;
      * Ability to communicate effectively with scientific, technical and
administrative staff as well as with peers in the social sciences and other
disciplines.
