Full Text of JOE Listing:
The International Water Management Institute (IWMI) seeks a postdoctoral economist to explore the potential impacts of India's water future on the country's agriculture and economy. Working with a set of senior scientists, the incumbent will develop a quantitative understanding of the availability and use of surface water and groundwater irrigation, associated policies and the potential for agricultural production across Indian regions. The incumbent will use econometric tools along with hydro-economic models to translate that understanding into an assessment of the supply, demand and trade implications of alternative water futures. The position will allow the incumbent exceptional opportunities for growth. The selected candidate will spend approximately half of their time at IWMI headquarters in Sri Lanka or its office in New Delhi. During the other half, the incumbent will be based in Washington, DC, working with the Market and Trade Economics Division of the United States Department of Agriculture's Economic Research Service. In this way, the candidate will receive mentoring support from a range of India experts, hydrologists and economists.
