We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join our climate communication research team.

The Fellow will contribute to our ongoing Climate Matters project, a National Science Foundation funded initiative that encourages and enables TV weathercasters to report on the local impacts of climate change. Going forward, we will be offering Climate Matters reporting resources to a broader set of local journalists working in TV, radio, newspapers and digital newsrooms around the nation. Using a combination of in-depth interviews and quantitative surveys, the Fellow will play a leading role in helping us assess the climate change views and reporting interests of local journalists and news directors across America.
Applicants must have a PhD in a relevant social science discipline, and a track record of journal and/or conference papers on relevant topics of inquiry. Priority will be given to applicants who have strong qualitative interviewing and quantitative survey research skills, and who have a strong understanding of climate change and/or journalism.

The position will be filled at the earliest possible opportunity, ideally in mid-August. Inquires about the position can be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
