The Climate System Analysis Group (CSAG) is expanding the post-doctoral team with three new appointments to work collaboratively within a new interdisciplinary program (see with a consortium of international partners, and be based in Cape Town, South Africa.

The three positions are loosely focused on:

  • Developing regional climate change information
  • Changes in regional climate atmospheric processes
  • Uptake of climate change information in decision making

Key foci include:

  • Communication and translation of climate information informed by key vulnerabilities of societal systems, especially at the scales of cities and their co-dependent regions.
  • Application, uptake and integration of climate information in decision frameworks in cities.
  • Methodologies to distill scale relevant and robust information from multi-model multi-method climate projection data sets.
  • Uncertainty, probability, likelihood and confidence in scale appropriate climate information.
  • Assessment of the co-behaviour of multi-scale climate process response to anthropogenic forcing and natural variability.

Applicants should have received their PhDs within the last 5 years.  The value of the fellowship for recent graduates will be R250 000 / year (tax free).
