The post doc will help initiate a project on Communities and Climate Change, which we are currently setting up with colleagues in the US and Netherlands. Olivier is planning on focusing this postdoctoral work on defining the indicators of resilience of SES, at least on their social part.
The process for a post-doc at Cemagref is that the candidate writes a proposal, with help from the team (ie Olivier), and the proposal is assessed (candidate + subject) by an internal commission. There is one commission for evaluation each month. If the candidate and proposal are good, it will go through.
If there is someone with a background in resilience who is interested they should contact Olivier Barreteau (olivier.barreteau at cemagref.fr).
