George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication seeks to hire a postdoctoral fellow to support an NSF grant focused on scaling up Climate Matters, a program intended to help TV weathercasters educate their viewers about the local impacts of global climate change. The ideal candidate will have quantitative research skills – including surveys and message experiments – and a strong grasp of climate change and meteorology.

As the Boulder Coloradan sunshine settles on COCE 2015, and we return to the demands of our lives and jobs, it seems the perfect moment to reflect upon the experiences of COCE 2015, before preparations for the next instalment at the University of Leicester (UK) get underway. Writing on day three of the conference, founding IECA Board Chair, Steve Depoe, reflected on both the differing and mutual journeys of COCE and the IECA, calling for our communit(ies)y to say ‘Yes’ to getting involved further. This inclusive ethos is indicative of Steve’s approach, and that of the IECA, and it is also the overriding message I took home from COCE 2015.
