Columbia University recognizes the importance of the co-production of knowledge in climate-related research. The Center for Science and Society is inviting applications for a postdoctoral researcher who will focus on advancing our commitment to ethical and informed practices around the co-production of knowledge over a two-year grant-funded position. 

The postdoctoral researcher will create a series of annotated bibliographies focused on the co-production of knowledge across several domains, work with researchers across all the Columbia University units to convene a working group on co-production, develop sample syllabi for undergraduate, masters and doctoral courses on co-production, and produce a document that codifies good practices based on this work as well as input from leaders in the successful practice of co-production that can be disseminated widely. The successful candidate will help organize a workshop to this end and will also contribute to a webinar series that introduces the landscape of co-production of knowledge. The candidate will also have opportunities to work on media outreach and developing narratives that can be used for pedagogy and real-world research design.
