DTU invites applications for a position as a full professor in Climate Risk Management. The professorship is affiliated with DTU's Department of Technology, Management and Economics (DTU Management) in the Division for Climate and Energy Policy. The position is a full-time position. The expected start date is during the fall of 2024, but we are flexible on the start date.
The division is an interdisciplinary research unit that carries out research on climate resilience, adaptation, and mitigation pathways. The division gathers expertise from economics, ecosystem modelling, and data science. We offer an excellent research environment with international staff, postdocs, and PhD students.
Our research within climate risk management aims to facilitate climate-resilient decision-making. The objective is to promote sustainable development by reducing damages and optimizing benefits across population groups, regions and sectors that are potentially affected by the changing climate.
Climate risk management requires approaches from several scientific disciplines as loss and damage vary across natural surroundings and societal frameworks. The consequences are manifold and drive financial risks like credit, market, insurance, and liquidity risks.
We apply integrated risk management of multi-hazards, the compound effects of extreme events (e.g., flooding, heat waves, wildfires, drought, storm surges and elevated water levels), and their consequences on land use and ecosystems.
Within this area, the position is offered to candidates with a focus on:
and/or a focus on:
Responsibilities and qualifications
