Junior Researcher in Energy Policy with a Focus on Energy Efficiency
Fraunhofer ISI You will work on challenging research projects and design methodological approaches and their implementation. In this context, you communicate with clients and publish your results in the context of a doctorate. Among other things, you will work in the field of designing and evaluating energy policy strategies and instruments and monitoring energy policy goals. One of your main tasks is the evaluation of different aspects of energy efficiency. To this end, you will design methods for evaluating the economic, social and environmental effects of energy efficiency in general and policy measures in particular, or further develop existing approaches to this end. The activity will also include the area of quantitative modeling. You will interact with different actors at European, national and municipal level in different workshops and discuss the different approaches and develop an online tool on this basis. You will work on research projects in a multidisciplinary team and expand your professional network. Good knowledge of German would be very beneficial.
Application deadline is the 7th of June.
