The postdoc will lead two major efforts of the Catalyst project: (1) a research gap analysis and preparation of a community white paper, and (2) a pilot event-based scenario exercise with project partners. The postdoc will engage in a research-based gap analysis and evaluation of data relevant to center research themes, which is foundational to the preparation of the Center strategic plan. Community input to the gap analysis and resource planning will come from workshops, conference sessions, town hall meetings and an online scientific community discussion document. The postdoc will also envision and lead coordination of a pilot scenario exercise with project partners.
