Full Text of JOE Listing:

NBER's Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Environmental and Energy Policy and the Economy, supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, provides the opportunity for an early-career economist to visit NBER's Cambridge headquarters for a year of intensive research on environmental and energy economics and policy. Topics may include all areas of climate change, energy policy, natural resource use, environmental justice and distributional impacts, and nonmarket valuation.

Applications from researchers just completing their PhDs, as well as from junior faculty who may be able to combine the fellowship with early career leave, are welcome. The fellow will have an opportunity to develop potential collaborative work with the post-doc sponsors Tatyana Deryugina, Matthew Kotchen and participating economists at the EPA's National Center for Environmental Economics.

The fellowship will provide a 12-month stipend of $90,000, reimbursement for health insurance, a travel and research allowance, and an office at the NBER. There may be an opportunity for a second-year renewal of the fellowship, but additional funding is not yet secured.

Applicants must have completed their PhD by June 2022. NBER strongly encourages applications from women, members of groups that have been under-represented in the economics profession, individuals with disabilities, and veterans.
