Full Text of JOE Listing:
The Institute of Water Policy in the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore is seeking an applied behavioral economist with experience in conducting empirical research involving households, communities, or firms. We are particularly interested in post-doctoral and early-career professionals. We welcome also mid-career scholars with notable experience and good publication records.

Much of the Institute's work pertains to policy issues regarding water resources in urban areas of Asia and Africa. Thus, experience with water policy issues is desirable, but not essential. The successful candidate will conduct independent research and assist colleagues in designing and implementing behavioral studies, using state-of-the-art methodology. We envision, for example, examining household responses to financial and non-financial incentives to reduce water use.

Candidates should possess a PhD Degree in economics, public policy, public administration or a related discipline, with strong training in econometrics and experience in conducting empirical studies. The appointment within the Institute of Water Policy will be as a Research Fellow or Senior Research Fellow, depending on qualifications and experience.
