The Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (MCC, www.mcc-berlin.net) is seeking a highly talented and motivated PhD student interested in working in an interdisciplinary environment that explores uncharted scientific and policy-related territory.
The mission of MCC is to create and advance theory as well as policy for sustainable governance of global and local commons and climate change. Research is driven by policy relevance and is regularly interdisciplinary in nature. MCC is a joint initiative of the Stiftung Mercator and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK).

MCC is unique in organizing its research efforts around the production of assessment reports. Based on excellent research, these reports will analyze alternative future pathways for the governance of global commons and the associated critical tradeoffs faced by society. 


Research Tasks The MCC Working Group “Assessments and Scientific Policy Advice” (ASP) seeks one PhD student to advance research on one of the following two areas:
1) Towards a science of assessment-making: Meta-study of assessment reports at the science-policy interface
 2) Political philosophy of commons
