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 a natural resource economist with strong conceptual training and experience in conducting empirical research. 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 in urban areas is desirable, but not essential. The successful candidate will conduct independent research and assist colleagues in designing and implementing conceptual and empirical studies of policies pertaining to the allocation of surface water and groundwater, water access, water quality, and water rights.

Candidates should possess a PhD Degree in economics 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.
