- EPIC Pre-Doctoral Fellowships
The Energy Policy Institute at Chicago (EPIC) invites applications for full-time pre-doctoral fellows for the academic year 2017-18. An interdisciplinary research and training center at the University of Chicago, EPIC is contributing innovative solutions to the global energy challenge: How can we ensure that people around the world, today and in the future, have access to reliable, affordable energy needed for human development without putting our health, environment and climate at risk? Previous results from EPIC projects have been influential with policymakers worldwide and featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and other leading publications.
Successful candidates will report to Michael Greenstone, Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago and the Director of EPIC, or Ryan Kellogg, Professor at Harris Public Policy at the University of Chicago. Responsibilities span all stages of research, including managing projects, collecting and analyzing data, creating presentations, and editing manuscripts. Typical research projects involve the analysis of environmental and energy data from the United States, India, China, and other countries utilizing quasi-experimental and experimental methods, as well as development of computational economic models of energy markets. In addition to working closely with faculty as research assistants, EPIC Pre-Doctoral Fellows typically attend classes and seminars at EPIC, The University of Chicago, and affiliate institutions.
