Job description

The successful candidate will be located at the MCC in Berlin and work on the “Rivet” project funded by FORMAS (Sweden).This project is a collaboration between the Department of Philosophy at Lund University (Dr. Henrik Thorén, project leader) in Sweden, and the MCC.

Climate economists use a wide array of models to explore the impacts and damages of climate change, and the merits of different mitigation policies and strategies. In the Rivetproject, we ask: what are the normative assumptions in these models? How are these assumptions selected over others, and what are their limitations? And what alternative assumptions and approaches to diverse normative viewpoints are available? The major purpose of this project is to develop a deliberative approach to the integration of diverse normative view points in model-based climate economics in order to improve

The project is structured around three work-packages (WPs). WP1is a large and interdisciplinary literature review coupled with an interview study targeting modelers and experts that seeks to identify central normative assumptions in climate economic modelling. WP2 (led by the MCC) involves the designing of a deliberative and practical approach for integrating divergent values at the science-policy interface, and WP3 involves facilitating the transdisciplinary aims of the project through continual and close interactions with stakeholders.

However, the key outputs will be publications in leading disciplinary and interdisciplinary scientific journals.

Major tasks of the candidate include:
- Lead on the publication of scientific results in esteemed, peer-reviewed international journals;
- Contribute to other project publications and other types of outputs, including stakeholder
dialogue, policy briefs and reports;
- Strongly contribute to the management of the Rivet project;
- Participate in project meetings and coordinate with MCC’sadministrationand the project
partnerin Lund;
- Present results at international conferences.
