    Title:  Fellowships

    Institution:  Project Drawdown  http://www.drawdown.org/drawdown-fellows/

    Deadline:  November 30, 2014

    Project Drawdown is pleased to announce the inception of the Drawdown Fellowship Program. This program is designed to foster the development of a new generation of leaders working on pragmatic solutions to our climate crisis. These students, scientists, entrepreneurs, and storytellers will learn how to describe a realistic future in which the world achieves drawdown - the point at which greenhouse gases in our atmosphere reach their modern day peak and then begin to decline.

    Project Drawdown offers a small number of competitive, ten-week fellowships to exceptional postgraduates, postdoctoral scholars, and young professionals from around the world. Fellows will work with Project Drawdown’s research team to develop realistic, solution-specific models, reports, and policy memos projecting the financial and climate impacts of ‘state-of-the-shelf’ solutions deployed at scale over the next thirty years.

    Fellowships run for ten weeks on a rolling basis, starting on January 10th 2015. Over the course of their fellowship, fellows are expected to work on 2-3 solutions from our vetted list of current technologies and practices. In addition, fellows are asked to identify and analyze a ‘Coming Attraction’, an upcoming solution with great potential to impact carbon emissions in the future.

    Benefits

    Drawdown Fellows offers young leaders from a variety of backgrounds the opportunity to be part of a growing movement of Drawdown storytellers. We will complement the urgency and fear that pervades the climate narrative today with narratives about the climate solutions we have today and what the world will be like when we scale these solutions as fast as we can.

    • Fellows will be invited to present their findings and the larger findings of Project Drawdown to our Coalition and wider community, establishing themselves as climate solutions experts.
    • Materials produced will be incorporated in our upcoming book, Drawdown, as well as our digital platform and compendium pieces. Fellows will be attributed as principle authors in all published materials.
    • A stipend will be provided based on the number of solutions undertaken.

    Fellows:

    • Masters degree required, PhD strongly preferred
    • 3+ years of work experience in renewable energy, energy efficiency, bio-sequestration, agriculture, international development, sharing economy, or related field
    • Strong research, analysis and writing skills; experience with research and preparing clear, compelling, and high quality reports and presentations
    • Project management skills, capable of meeting deadlines and working with large groups of people

    Junior Fellows:

    • Current masters students, or recent postgraduates
    • Work experience in renewable energy, energy efficiency, bio-sequestration, agriculture, international development, sharing economy, or related field
    • Strong research, analysis and writing skills; experience with research and preparing clear, compelling, and high quality reports and presentations
    • Project management skills, capable of meeting deadlines and working with large groups of people

    Who Can Apply?

    Current postgraduates (masters and doctoral students), postdoctoral researchers, and young scholars and professionals are eligible to apply for the fellowship. Fellowships are open to applicants from any country.

    How Do I Apply?

    Please complete our online application form by clicking the button below. All candidates should be sure to upload their most recent resume or CV, a list of references, and two recent writing samples (see below for details). We will also consider letters of support from supervisors or institutions, if applicable.

    Title:  PhD-student at NTNU Industrial Ecology - Urban metabolism

    Institution:   Norwegian University of Science and Technology  http://www.ntnu.edu/indecol

    Location: Trondheim, Norway

    Deeadline:  December 20, 2014

    Apply Online Here: http://www.jobbnorge.no/ledige-stillinger/stilling/107415/phd-position-in-methods-in-strategic-sustainability-modelling-and-analysis-of-urban-metabolism-ivt-172-14

    Read more:


    At the Department of Energy and Process Engineering a PhD Candidate position is available at the Industrial Ecology Programme, which is internationally recognized for its research and education in quantitative environmental systems analysis, see http://www.ntnu.edu/indecol. The position is announced for 4 years with duty work for the Department. This area is also one of the main research topics in NTNU’s new Strategic Thematic Area “TSO-Sustainability”, see http://www.ntnu.edu/sustainability.

     Urban metabolism research is about understanding the socio-metabolism of urban systems, i.e. the system-wide characteristics of material and energy flows and stocks and their influencing factors over time in urban systems and sub-systems. This understanding is a required basis for examining strategic (long-term promising) opportunities for sustainability in urban systems. In particular this is the case for realizing life-cycle improvements in urban resource efficiency and environmental impacts due to consumption of resources and emissions to water, air and soil. However, other socio-economic dimensions of sustainability also come into question when examining how sustainable urban systems are today and what measures can be taken.

     The strategic playing field of urban metabolism and sustainability research is wide, however, this PhD candidate shall focus on methods in urban metabolism modelling and analysis, aiming at a quantitative understanding of how the urban metabolism is influenced by socio-economic drivers, technologies, urban growth and a changing urban fabric, and how these factors further influence key sustainability performance indicators in urban systems, particularly greenhouse gas emissions. The candidate is expected to contribute to the advancement of modelling and analysis methods, and to study selected cases and areas of urban activity and sub-systems that potentially contribute a lot to the urban metabolism (such as buildings, transport and waste management). Problem formulation, choice of research questions and methods will be influenced by the successful candidate’s background, qualifications and interests.

     The successful candidate has a Master degree in engineering, industrial ecology, physics, applied mathematics, systems analysis or closely related subjects, and he/she must be able to document good oral and written communication skills, good knowledge of systems analysis and advanced knowledge of programming and numerical methods. It is an advantage if the candidate has experience in analysis of urban systems and/or sustainability research.  

     Further details regarding the position can be obtained by Professor Helge Brattebø, email: helge.brattebo@ntnu.no.

    The PhD applicants are expected to carry out theoretical development and extensive field work. The successful applicants are motivated and ambitious students. Good cooperation abilities will be emphasized.

    PhD Candidates are remunerated in code 1017, and are normally remunerated at wage level 50, gross NOK 429 400,- before tax. The salary is adjusted according to the recent wage negotiations. There will be 2% deduction to the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund from gross wage.

    The goal of the announced position is to obtain a PhD degree. Applicants will engage in an organized PhD training program, and appointment requires approval of the applicants plan for a PhD study within three months from the date of commencement. See http://www.ntnu.edu/ivt/phd for more information.

    General conditions

    Engagement as a PhD candidate is done in accordance with “Regulation concerning terms and conditions of employment for the posts of post-doctoral research fellow, research fellow, research assistant and resident”, given by the Ministry of Education and Research of 19.07.2010. The engagement is to be made in accordance with the regulations in force concerning State Employees and Civil Servants. The positions adhere to the Norwegian Government's policy of balanced ethnicity, age and gender. According to the new Freedom of Information Act, information concerning the applicant may be made public even if the applicant has requested not to be included in the list of applicants.

    The PhD candidate will be required to work in Trondheim at the Department of Energy and Process Engineering, NTNU. The Applications with CV, possible publications and other scientific works, certified copies of transcripts and reference letters should be submitted electronically via this page (jobbnorge.no). Mark your application with ref.no. IVT- 172/14.
