The University of Greenland, Ilisimatusarfik, calls for applications for a 5 year professorship with focus on the impacts of climate change on the Greenlandic society.
The professorship is part of the agreement between Denmark and Greenland in connection with the creation of the Greenland Climate Research Centre. The purpose of the social science aspect of the climate research centre is to describe and assess the influence of climate change on Greenlandic society, including economics, business, technology, etc., and furthermore to develop adaptation strategies. Another aim is to build an environment within social science research, with a view to clarifying the development of Greenlandic society in relation to climate change.
