Job Announcement [ref. CCSD-CIP/11.2013]
Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei and Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change
Climate Change and Sustainable Development Economics
1 Research Position - General equilibrium modelling and resource economics and policy

Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM, a leading research institute on sustainable development - www.feem.it) and the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC, a research institution that manages and promotes scientific and applied activities in the field of international climate change research – www.cmcc.it) aim to recruiting motivated and talented researchers to cover one open position on climate change and sustainable development economics.

The selected applicant will join the FEEM Research Programme on Climate Change and Sustainable Development (CCSD), or the CMCC Research Division on Climate Impacts and Policy (CIP). These research branches carry out high level research on climate change economics, climate change integrated assessment modelling, climate change policy and governance, climate-related innovation and technological change, natural hazards and extreme climate-related events, management of natural resources, sustainability and growth beyond GDP.


Requirements
Applicants should have a PhD in economics and/or past proven experience, both with a focus on applied general equilibrium modelling and resource economics and policy. Applications from PhD candidates who are close to its completion are accepted. Experience in conducting applied economic research using empirical and numerical methods is required. The selected applicant will join a project focusing on policies for resource efficiency.
This project involves analysis of policy mixes to decouple resource use from growth, using a computable general equilibrium modelling approach. The main tasks of the selected candidate will be to: (i) contribute to numerical modelling of policy mixes in a general equilibrium framework; (ii) compile a review of the theoretical predictions of general equilibrium models regarding selected policy mixes; and (iii) provide a qualitative assessment of relevant socioeconomic implications, not reflected in the models.

FEEM and CMCC offer a truly interdisciplinary workplace and have strong ties to a worldwide network of research institutions engaged in environmental research. The selected applicant will interact with researchers of different nationalities and have the opportunity to present scientific papers at a number of conferences and workshops.
The selected applicant is expected to begin his/her assignment in January 2014. The initial appointment is for 12 months and can be renewed for up to 3 years. Gross salary is competitive and will be based on qualification and experience. Research will be carried out at the FEEM or CMCC premises in Milan or Venice, Italy.
