Full Text of JOE Listing:
NMR, a small and expanding consulting company specializing in the evaluation of energy efficiency and renewable energy programs, is seeking candidates for a Quantitative Analyst position. NMR is based in Somerville, Massachusetts. The candidate may be located anywhere in the US, with a preference for New England or New York.
NMR is seeking to hire an individual possessing the knowledge, skills, and abilities typically gained through a master’s degree in statistics, economics, or other mathematical fields plus three to five years of relevant work experience, or possibly doctoral-level graduate education in the same fields. 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 descriptions of research results
We prefer candidates with experience addressing energy-related subjects, 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 are seeking candidates with the willingness and ability to conduct broad, mixed-methods research, including straightforward survey analysis and qualitative research such as in-depth interviewing.
We offer generous benefits as well as the possibility of telecommuting.
