The Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3) invites applications for a research assistant (RA) to work on the project “CAN WE MEASURE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF PUBLIC INVESTMENTS IN URBAN CLIMATE RESILIENCE?” funded by the AXA Research Fund. The RA will be working under the supervision of Dr. Marta Olazabal and will be part of the Adaptation Lab at BC3.
BC3 aims to strategically foster co-production of knowledge relevant to decision making by integrating environmental, socioeconomic, and ethical dimensions of climate change. BC3 considers that coordinated transdisciplinary (i.e., interdisciplinary and participatory) research approaches are essential in the post-Paris Agreement era, while being aware that climate action and protection will never be the sole priorities of governments and no single approach will work equally for all members in society. BC3 aspires to contribute to the co-generation of new and relevant scientific knowledge to support policy making at different scales. This includes understanding and linking social and policy processes and promoting regular communication between stakeholders at all governance levels, in the post-Paris and SDGs era.
As one of the five Research Lines at BC3, the Adaptation Lab has a cross-sectoral focus on adaptation economics, adaptation policy analysis, climatic risk assessment, adaptation tracking and climate resilience.
