The CNRS offers a Doctoral position (M/F) concerning the topic: “Adapting to compound climate events and their cascading impacts in coastal settings: conceptual and methodological approach, and application to small islands” at La Rochelle (France).
The PhD thesis will contribute to address these research gaps by investigating four interconnected areas:
- Weather / climate triggers
- The physical, ecological and societal processes
- The cascades of impacts generated by these events
- The contribution of risk reduction and climate adaption policies and measures
The candidate must have a background in environmental sciences, preferably coastal, and a strong interest for interdisciplinary analyses. A Master’s Degree in geography or environmental sciences, especially coastal, with robust knowledge on coastal risks and risk reduc4on and adaptation policies and measures, systemic (i.e. system-based) analyses as developed in social sciences, climate change impacts and climate adaptation, tropical small islands is assumed.
Applications can be handed in via the CNRS recruitment portal.
