Full Text of JOE Listing:

NMR, a small but expanding firm specializing in the evaluation of energy efficiency and renewable energy programs, is seeking candidates for a Quantitative Analyst position.

NMR seeks to hire an individual possessing the knowledge, skills, and abilities typically gained through doctoral-level graduate education or prior work in economics, statistics, or other mathematical fields, or possibly a master’s degree plus relevant work experience. These qualifications include the following:

• Proficiency with very large datasets
• Considerable experience developing quantitative models
• Ability to perform descriptive quantitative analyses using Stata, SPSS, R or similar data analysis packages
• Facility in writing clear and concise research summaries

We prefer candidates with experience addressing energy-related concerns, and also candidates who understand the principles and practices of program impact evaluation, but will consider candidates with relevant skills and expertise gained in other fields. Experience with complex sample designs and weighting, along with survey design, implementation, and analysis are also valuable but not essential. While most work will be quantitative, we also value the willingness and ability to conduct broad, mixed-methods research.

We offer generous benefits as well as the possibility of telecommuting.

Please submit your application through this website.
