Work with us at ANU on the economics and policy of energy transition

We seek researchers with demonstrated research excellence relevant to the project, and ability to produce innovative research on a range of emerging topics in the energy transition. Successful applicants will enthusiastically engage high-impact research as part of the team, and in collaboration with researchers at partner universities in Australia and Germany.

The Energy Transition Hub (Hub) is a collaborative research initiative between several Australian and German universities and research institutes. The Hub is funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, ANU and University of Melbourne, and project-specific contributions. At ANU, the Hub is led through the Centre for Climate and Energy Policy (CCEP). Related research is also undertaken under the ANU Grand Challenge “Zero Carbon Energy for the Asia-Pacific” program, led by the ANU Energy Change Institute.

We are hiring up to three researchers, for a period of two years with potential extension depending on future funding. A joint appointment with the Grand Challenge programme, under the direction of the ANU Energy Change Institute, may be offered for one of the positions.

We are hiring researchers in:

1) Quantitative energy economics and energy/electricity systems and market modelling; 2) applied economic analysis of energy markets, policy and regulation, and regional industrial transition; 3) Analysis of supply chains and investment and trade frameworks for renewable energy based exports.

The researchers will engage in a variety of projects related to Australia’s energy transition. Details here. Applications close 30 August 2019.
