Job at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

No Deadline

"We have an opening for a Earth Scientist/Engineer to analyze and develop new options for reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. You will participate across all aspects of Livermore’s Carbon Initiative, analyzing the economic cost and carbon footprint of new systems, comparing them to existing and proposed approaches while focusing on how the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (CLCFS) and other statewide policies and initiatives can be used to incentivize such projects. This position is in the Atmospheric, Earth & Energy Division."

Online Workshops: Greenhouse Gas Removal

December 2018 and January 2019

"Our research group at the Lancaster Environment Centre is convening a series of four short deliberative online workshops on greenhouse gas removal to be held in December 2018 and January 2019. The dates and timings will be finalised in consultation with potential participants. The events will involve diverse stakeholders with interests in greenhouse gas/carbon removal to explore scenarios for the development of relevant technologies and ways they might be best guided to ensure it contributes effectively to tackling climate change. All the online workshops will discuss these technologies in general, focusing to a greater or lesser degree on one or more of the specific technologies suggested, depending in part on the mix of expertise amongst participants."

Job at University of Virginia

No Deadline

"An interdisciplinary team of engineers, environmental scientists and economists, at the University of Virginia seeks applications for a postdoctoral research associate to lead a newly funded research initiative exploring the tradeoffs inherent in carbon negative emissions technologies (NETs). NETs effectively run climate change in reverse and range from pathways that are highly engineered (e.g., direct air capture) to those that promote natural processes (e.g., coastal blue carbon) with many in between (e.g., bioenergy with carbon capture). An interdisciplinary team comprised of Andres Clarens (Engineering Systems and Environment), Scott Doney (Environmental Sciences), and Bill Shobe (Policy/Economics) are working to collect environmental and socio-economic data and perform modeling using integrated modeling tools that will enable us to explore key tradeoffs between NET pathways."
