The Center for Climate and Resilience Research (CR2, is a center of excellence created in 2013 with funding from the National Commission for Scientific and Technological Research (CONICYT, CR2’s sponsoring institution is University of Chile (UCHILE,, and Universidad de Concepción (UDEC, and Universidad Austral de Chile (UACH, are associated institutions. CR2 is the point of convergence of researchers across disciplines who jointly address the understanding of the Earth System in a changing climate and contribute to the evaluation and design of mitigation and adaptation measures in order to strengthen climate resilience in Chile. During its first period, CR2 researchers were prolific in disciplinary research as well as in interdisciplinary collaboration with high scientific impact and relevant outcomes for policy making.

We hereby invite applications for a 5 year research associate position in climate change and variability beginning in early 2018. We expect the successful candidate to work with us full time, subject to a yearly review of his/her performance. The position will be held at the Department of Geophysics, Universidad de Chile, in Santiago, but we expect the successful candidate to visit the partner institutions on a regular basis, taking advantage of the large diversity of expertise within the CR2 as well as the center’s distributed resources.

The research associate will engage with existing projects and initiatives but it is expected that he/she will formulate and rapidly implement his/her own research plan within the framework of CR2 priorities for the next five years (see above). We also expect a proactive cooperation with the center’s efforts on in/outreach, science communication, education and development of national and international scientific partnerships. Teaching (in Spanish) is not mandatory but desirable with a dedication of up to half a day per week. Fluency in English is required. If not a Spanish speaker, learning the language while working at CR2 is recommended.
