  • Postdoctoral Associate in Coastal Economics

A postdoctoral position in economics is available in the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University to work on an NSF-funded project, “Climate Change Adaptation in a Coupled Geomorphic-Economic Coastal System with Heterogeneous Climate Beliefs.” This project will analyze the ways in which coastal processes and economic decisions about land use and coastal engineering interact to determine the nature and timing of adaptation to climate risk. It addresses the interactions of natural forces, economic decisions, and public policies over long time horizons to determine how the built environment and patterns of human settlement react to rising seas and related coastline changes. These issues are of concern to a significant part of the US population, especially along the East Coast and Gulf of Mexico, that faces persistent flooding and storm damage. The postdoctoral researcher, under the supervision of Martin D. Smith, will work primarily on numerical modeling of the coupled coastline system and applied econometrics of coastal real estate markets. Postdoctoral researchers are also expected to work with the PI to develop new research projects.
