The Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University is seeking a Postdoctoral Scholar in Environmental and Energy Economics to conduct research on the EPA Energy Star program and to provide instruction and support for professional graduate students in its Master of Environmental Management (MEM), and Master of Forestry (MF) programs.

Research includes statistical analysis of non-public manufacturing energy and production data from the U.S. Bureau of the Census. Special Sworn Status (SSS) enabling access to the Triangle Federal Statistical Data Center (or the ability to be approved for SSS by the start date) is required. Expertise in STATA or similar statistics packages is also required. Familiarity with energy policy, climate policy, and/or manufacturing energy management and energy efficiency is highly desirable. Good communications and writing skill preferred. The applicant will work closely with Dr. Gale Boyd and EPA staff that support the EPA Energy Star program.

The Postdoctoral Scholar in Environmental Economics and Policy will teach two courses per year for the MEM and MF programs. The MEM and MF are two-year degree programs that train students for careers focused on solving complex environmental problems and draw individuals from nearly all undergraduate backgrounds. Approximately 350 professional students are in residence in a given academic year, with a significant number of international students whose first language is not English. Areas of specialization within the MEM program include: Business and the Environment, Energy and the Environment, Environmental Analytics and Modeling, Environmental Economics and Policy, Environmental Health and Ecotoxicology, Coastal and Marine Systems, Community Engagement and Environmental Justice, and Terrestrial and Freshwater Environments. In the Fall semester the Fellow will teach the core class in environmental and energy economics. In the spring semester the Fellow will teach a course on causal inference, climate economics, or other economics elective.

The initial appointment will be for one year starting July 1, 2023, and will be renewable based on performance, successful evaluation, funding availability, and continued programmatic needs.

A PhD degree and related teaching experience are required. The course will be taught in-person at Duke University’s Durham, NC campus.

Review of applications will begin on June 1, 2023, although applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
