We are seeking to appoint a Research Associate on the Climate and Land Use Economics Project reporting to Professor Cameron Hepburn at the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment and the Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School. In collaboration with the sponsor – The Nature Conservancy – the primary goal of the project is to understand the options for reaching a 1.5oC or 2oC temperature target, given existing committed cumulative emissions and the potential and limitations of land-based carbon sequestration.

You will work closely with the leadership of the Smith School, INET and the Nature Conservancy to ensure that research outputs have impact on public policy.

You must have a track record of high-quality peer-reviewed publications on relevant topics. A track record of interdisciplinary research collaboration and engagements, demonstrating the ability to work across disciplinary boundaries is essential. An ability to work in a demanding environment subject to deadlines and exacting professional and academic standards is a must.
