What is Climate Change? How should we respond to Climate Change?

The economist sees the economic challenges and opportunities of Climate Change; the scientist sees the need to describe and explain Climate Change; the policy-maker and social scientist see Climate Change as a social problem. Therefore, the first step to understanding Climate Change and what we do about it is to see how experts from different disciplines engage with the issue. The second step is to appreciate how our response to Climate Change depends upon the interplay between these different approaches.

Course Introduction

What is Climate Change? How should we respond to Climate Change? These questions are complex, not least because the responses available to us depend upon who is providing the answers and the particular perspective they take. The economist sees the economic challenges and opportunities of Climate Change; the scientist sees the need to describe and explain Climate Change; the policy-maker and social scientist see Climate Change as a social problem. Therefore, the first step to understanding Climate Change and what we do about it is to see how experts from different disciplines engage with the issue. The second step is to appreciate how our response to Climate Change depends upon the interplay between these different approaches.

This course offers you an introduction to different disciplinary perspectives on Climate Change to help you think about how Climate Change affects you as an individual, as a member of your local community, as a citizen of your country and as a member of the global community.

Study Subject(s):  LTF is awarded for a project in the life sciences which is significantly different from the applicant’s previous PhD or postdoctoral work. CDF is awarded for those applicants who have had limited exposure to biology during their previous training.
Course Level: This is a three year postdoctoral fellowship programme.
Scholarship Provider: The Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSPO)
Scholarship can be taken at: HFSPO supporting countries and in any country (A candidate who is not a national from one of the supporting countries may apply to work only in one of the supporting countries and a candidate who is a national of one of the supporting countries can apply to work in any country).

Biological research has become increasingly quantitative through the participation of scientists from biophysics, physics, chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics and nanoscience. Such collaborations have led to new approaches for understanding the complex structures and regulatory networks that characterize the evolution and interactions of organisms and biological systems. HFSPO invites applications for its two international postdoctoral programs:
-Long-Term Fellowships (LTF) are for applicants with a Ph.D. in a biological discipline, who will broaden their expertise by proposing a project in the life sciences which is significantly different from their previous Ph.D. or postdoctoral work.
