Dr. Jerome Ravetz writes in with this humorous research post job advertisement, writing:
Here’s an extract from an advertisement for a research post at the London School of Economics:
The Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science [London School of Economics] is seeking to appoint a Post-Doctoral Research Officer to contribute to the AHRC [Arts & Humanities Research Council] funded Research Project ‘Managing Severe Uncertainty’. The Research Officer will be expected to carry out supervised research within the remit of the project, with a focus on the nature and implications of scientific uncertainty and/or decision making under uncertainty, especially with regard to climate science and policy.
I wonder why they simply didn’t just advertise for a cat herder?
Maybe one of these guys could apply for the job:
