In the framework of the EU funded project TIPPING+ (Enabling Positive Tipping Points towards clean-energy transitions in Coal and Carbon Intensive Regions), the Paris School of Economics is recruiting a post-doctoral research fellow for 1 year (with possible extension for a second year).

The research fellow will be in charge of performing (i) an econometric assessment of the impact of climate policy in European Carbon Intensive Regions and (ii) a forward-looking analysis of the potential structural changes induced by these policies. The latter analysis will rely on the development of dynamic models of the European production network.

The candidate must have a very strong quantitative background with a PhD in applied mathematics, economics, or related field (operation research, physics, statistics). Furthermore, he/she must have a good understanding of current trends in the European climate policy landscape. Interested candidates should send a cover letter and a cv (including a publication list and the contact details of three referees) to antoine.mandel univ-paris1.fr

Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.
