The University of Chicago Energy and Environment Lab invites applications for full-time research fellows who will sit in Washington D.C. at the office of a U.S. government federal agency partner and support a number of social policy research projects that we are working on in partnership with them. An interdisciplinary research and training center, The University of Chicago Energy and Environment Lab focuses on identifying and testing ways to solve the world's most urgent energy and environmental challenges through cost effective and scalable programs or policies. Its goal is to assemble a portfolio of knowledge (using a variety of empirical methods ranging from "big data" and machine learning tools to randomized controlled trials) to generate new evidence about what works, for whom, and why, and to conduct benefit-cost analyses of different interventions to enable policymakers to prioritize resources for the combination of strategies that achieve the greatest social good per dollar spent.
Thanks to the generosity of Harris Alumnus John Bartlett, EPIC offers paid internships to students at the Harris School of Public Policy. Internships with EPIC are available for the academic year, as well as for the summer. Interns have the opportunity to assist EPIC faculty with research and data collection, or to conduct their own research project under faculty guidance in the area of environmental and energy economics and policy. While research will be the main focus of the internship, students will also gain experience with grant and proposal writing, communications, and program coordination on an as-needed basis within the Institute.
