Arizona State University, Consortium for Science, Policy, and Outcomes (CSPO) seeks a Post-doctoral Research Associate to assist with an NSF-sponsored 5-year joint project with the Center for Science and Technology Policy Research at the University of Colorado. The project, called Science Policy Assessment and Research on Climate (SPARC), will investigate the relation between science policy and climate policy decisions from two perspectives. First, SPARC explores how climate research agendas are developed and implemented, with a particular focus on understanding how the organization of climate research (“supply”) relates to the information needs of climate policy decision makers (“demand”). Second, SPARC investigates the relative magnitude of various sources of global environmental change in order to better understand the relation between the causes of global change and the priorities of the U.S. climate science portfolio. Key, cross-cutting themes in each of these efforts include the role and behavior of science policy institutions and the influence of ethics and values on science policy decisions. The responsibilities of the post-doctoral associate will include but are not limited to: 1. conducting literature reviews and background research on impacts of climate change to ecosystems and on other drivers of change to these same ecosystems, 2. developing an initial sensitivity analysis of the relative importance of the impact of climate change on ecosystems and that of other drivers of ecosystem change, and 3. working with a panel of experts to map out the relevant set of impacts and causal relations and then to refine the sensitivity analysis on select ecosystems. Required Qualifications: Recent Ph.D. in a related field, which may include but is not limited to political science, sociology, ecology, anthropology, geography, and other environmental sciences. Desired Qualifications: Knowledge of global change science and policies, experience working on interdisciplinary projects.=20
CSPO and ASU offer an innovative, interdisciplinary environment for developing and testing research ideas related to the governance and conduct of science and technology in the public interest The initial appointment will be for one year with option to extend. The salary level is between $35,000-$40,000/yr depending on qualifications and experience. Applications Procedure: The initial deadline is December 15, 2004; if not filled every two weeks until the search is closed. Submit: detailed letter of application stating qualifications, experience, and research interests and plans; detailed curriculum vitae; and the names and contact information for 3 references to Lori Hidinger, Consortium for Science, Policy and Outcomes, PO Box 874401, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ 85287-4401 or email@example.com.

Earth Institute at Columbia University announces the Global Roundtable on Climate Change. The Roundtable will bring together 100-150 high-level, critical stakeholders – CEOs, Heads of State, and leaders of international governmental and public interest organizations, in an attempt to reach consensus on core scientific, economic, and policy issues critical to shaping sound public policies on climate change. The Roundtable will meet twice a year for three years and utilize the best science, technology, economic and public policy analysis available – which will be provided by the world’s leading experts via four technical working groups. Roundtable members will be drawn from every major economic sector (including energy, non-renewable and renewable resources, finance, manufacturing, transportation, insurance, health, and agriculture), international organizations, NGOs, and national governments. A broad, global geographic representation will also be emphasized with members drawn from every region of the world and from both high and low income countries. The Roundtable will seek to arrive at a consensus on key scientific and technical issues within 2 years and a policy consensus within 3 years. This consensus, if reached, will have a major impact on the global community due to the high-profile stakeholder status and top-tier professional positions of its members. The Earth Institute will host the Roundtable, which has been made possible by a generous gift from the Lenfest Foundation. The first meeting will convene in New York, May 11-12, 2005, at Columbia University.

If ISA and ESS members each sent a few books (including your own or whatever else is handy), these students and their successors could have access to the works and ideas that ISA members consider important. The center, directed by Widiodi P. Dasuki, is oriented to inter-religious dialogue, peace studies, and international politics, but they are interested in all international studies books, especially IR theory and textbooks. If you want to participate, you can send a box of up to 11 pounds of books to Indonesia from the USA for $11.00 using the “M-bag” rate at any post office.
