Position description

The University of California, Irvine is seeking a creative and motivated postdoctoral scholar with interest and expertise in climate science, geoscience education, environmental justice, and/or community-engaged research. The postdoc will help co-develop and implement course curricula, workshops, and community-engaged research projects as UCI seeks to develop a Cultural, Learning, and Institutional Model to Accelerate Transformations for Environmental Justice (CLIMATE Justice). The postdoc will be expected to work across disciplines and with community partners to address local and regional issues related to climate and environmental change, to help train and mentor diverse cohorts of PhD and postbaccaulaureate CLIMATE Justice fellows, and to communicate results in peer-reviewed publications, conference presentations, and public-facing venues.

This is a two-year appointment that is potentially renewable for up to 3 years. The start date is flexible, ideally sometime in the Spring of 2023. The salary will range from 60,000 to 72,000 USD per year, scaling with experience as detailed here, and includes generous benefits. This position will be based in the Dept. of Earth System Science, but the candidate will work closely with the UCI Research Justice Shop, a social science postdoctoral fellow in environmental justice, and other faculty and staff across the UCI campus .
