We would like to bring to your attention an opportunity to work as a Research Fellow supporting the Stanford Urban Resilience Initiative. We are looking for a leader to coordinate research activities, develop original research, and facilitate stakeholder engagement and educational efforts.
The Stanford Urban Resilience Initiative is focused on research and design of technologies to improve the resilience of communities to natural disasters. Housed in the Blume Earthquake Engineering Center, the initiative is focused on tackling one of the major global challenges of the next century: ensuring that our human environments–increasingly urban, complex, interconnected–cope with and thrive in the face of natural perils. An engaged group of Stanford faculty and students are participating in this effort, creating an exciting opportunity for new initiatives.
