Research Associate – Assessment of Climate Policies

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral researcher to join a team working on the EC-funded H2020 network PARIS-REINFORCE, which involves 18 European and non-European partners supporting the Paris Agreement goals.  The project is focussed on improving and enhancing the deployment of Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) in performing global analyses of various climate change scenarios.

The project will be led by Dr Annela Anger-Kraavi within the climate change economics and policy group in the Centre for Atmospheric Science, Department of Chemistry.  This post would suit a post-doctoral researcher with an academic background in economics or other social science field, but with an interest in multi-disciplinary whole-system approaches to research and its applications.  The successful candidate will be part of a team including atmospheric scientists who are working on a wide range of topics including state-of-the-art climate and earth system modelling, as well as policy-oriented work on air pollution and climate change.  Considerable interaction with project partners is to be expected.

Applicants should have (or be about to obtain) a PhD in economics, political economy, applied economics, or other relevant area.  Knowledge or experience in adjacent areas such as climate policy, climate science, or econometrics/modelling would be desirable.  In addition, good writing skills and attention to detail will be important.
