Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), will head a new climate and energy research institute at Yale University. The institute and its head were announced on 10 March at an international climate-change conference in Copenhagen (see 'Soundbites from Copenhagen').
Pachauri, Nature's Newsmaker of the Year in 2007, will work part-time at the Yale institute, retaining his current positions with the IPCC and as director-general of India's Energy and Resources Institute in New Delhi.
