The Global Adaptation Initiative at Notre Dame (ND-GAIN) is looking to 
hire two postdocs. Ideal candidates would be trained in Biology, 
Ecology, Environmental Science, or Environmental Engineering while 
having a strong foot in the political or other human sciences. At ND-
GAIN, we think that there is great opportunity to couple the human with 
the physical/environmental in the realm of climate adaptation. The 
specific intellectual focus is flexible and could range from adaptation 
efforts to confront climate driven infectious disease, how social 
adaptation influences climate driven hydrological processes, how 
adapting to food, energy and water stress/collapse can influence 
observed social/armed conflict, or any number of other topics at the 
intersection of human and physical adaptation questions. ND-GAIN would 
provide an interesting and interactive environment, embedded within the 
Notre Dame Environmental Change Initiative (ND-ECI). This postdoctoral 
opportunity also provides the possibility of joint mentoring by a 
faculty member from your primary discipline along with a political 
scientist. The initial position would be for one year with the 
possibility of a 2nd year renewal.  For more information on ND-GAIN and 
ND-ECI, visit and
