The Division for Sustainability, Society & Economics at DTU Management offers a postdoc position in the Climate Economics and Risk Management section.

We are looking for a talented and highly motivated economist with an interest in participating in cutting-edge research within the value of providing and using climate risk information, including economic and other social aspects, as a basis for coping with extreme climate events including flooding, wildfires and storms in a European context. The position is initially offered for 2 years with the possibility of an extension. The research will, as part of a strong Danish and European interdisciplinary team, focus on welfare impacts of climate hazards including direct economic costs, wider welfare impacts, health and equity aspects.

You will divide your time between two related research actions funded by the European Commission’s Horizon Framework including the ClimateEurope2 project, which aims to producing and testing high quality climate information with users, whereas the DRYADS project focuses on creating a holistic fire management ecosystem to protect against wildfires. Both projects are just starting to imply that our research team will have a lot of freedom in planning our activities. The research activities in the Section for Climate Economics and Risk Management are highly interdisciplinary and you will become part of a collaborative team effort spanning the full research chain - from climate hazards through impact and risk assessment to economics and adaptation.

Responsibilities and qualifications The postdoc will have two major focus points:

· You will explore the economic benefits and other values of using high quality climate information in Europe based on quantitative and qualitative methods including avoided damage costs, adaptation costs, return on investments and other climate risk indicators such as health impacts, biodiversity, historical- and cultural values. This will be done in close collaboration with stakeholders and project partners. In-depth assessments and co-knowledge production will be conducted in a number of case studies in Europe. Quantitative modelling tools on costs and other social impacts developed within our section will also be further developed and applied to the case studies.

· In line with the research described above, you will also contribute to the development and application of methods for assessing the damages and risks of wildfires in economic terms under both past (forensic analyses), present (emergencies, prevention) and future (adaptation) climate conditions at detailed spatial level in Europe.

The ideal candidate should have:

· A PhD degree in general or environmental economics or similar qualifications

· Experience with quantitative studies of the economics of climate risks and associated environmental issues including sustainable development

· Excellent communication skills

· Well-developed ability to work individually and in a group

· A willingness and desire to engage in interdisciplinary collaboration

· Good programming capabilities in advanced analysis software (e.g., Python, R, MATLAB, etc.) and/or experience with GIS and spatial analyses is an advantage

As a formal qualification, you must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent).

We offer

DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility.

Salary and terms of employment

The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union.

The period of employment is two years, starting as soon as possible (or according to mutual agreement). The position is a full-time position.

Canada Excellence Research Chair in the Socio-Economic Value of Renewable Energy in Remote Communities

The University of Saskatchewan (USask) is pleased to invite applications for a Canada Excellence Research Chair in the Socio-Economic Value of Renewable Energy in Remote Communities. The Canada Excellence Research Chairs (CERC) Program is the flagship of a national strategy to make Canada one of the world’s top countries in research and innovation (https://www.cerc.gc.ca/home-accueil-eng.aspx). Chairholders will be awarded up to $1 million per year for a period of 8 years.

Given the global importance of the transition from carbon-based fuels to renewable energy and the large number of remote, energy-isolated communities in Canada’s North, USask is committed to providing national and international leadership on how renewable energy can help address basic needs, as well as economic and social reconciliation in Canada and beyond. Such leadership can also provide a global opportunity to transfer the lessons for achieving energy security, expanding economic and social development, and reconciliation to the other 1.2 billion people on Earth without access to electricity.

Position Profile

We are seeking an applied social scientist whose innovative research program complements and builds on the established records of a core group of energy researchers across USask in economics, geography, political science, public policy, engineering, and other disciplines. In addition, we are seeking someone who will contribute to understanding how renewable energy can help address economic and social reconciliation with Indigenous peoples in Canada and beyond.

  • The successful candidate will be the catalyst to establish the USask as a global leader in any of the following or similar fields:
  • Understanding social drivers, dynamics and consequences of energy system change.
  • Modelling the social and economic opportunities, benefits and costs of renewable energy in remote communities.
  • Identifying and shaping national and international policy agendas to maximize the socio-economic value of the energy transition for remote communities.
  • Mobilizing knowledge to enable remote communities to lead energy transitions nationally and globally.

The successful nominee will initiate and lead an innovative and impactful program of research, foster extensive interdisciplinary and multi-sector collaborations, and raise the profile and impact of USask through an innovative research program and knowledge mobilization efforts within and beyond academia. The academic home of this position will be determined in partnership with the successful candidate and will be either the School of Environment and Sustainability, College of Arts and Science, or College of Engineering. A joint appointment including two units is also possible.

The University of Saskatchewan has identified Energy and Minerals for a Sustainable Future as one of a select number of Signature areas, recognizing our institution’s existing research strength and potential for impact. USask is also home to several other significant programs, initiatives and chairs that will complement the work of the CERC. These include the federally funded (SSHRC) flagship research initiative “Community Appropriate Sustainable Energy Security”, a professional Masters’ program in Energy Security, a University of the Arctic Thematic Network, the Fulbright Arctic III initiative, and an extensive cohort of faculty and research chairs with expertise spanning technology solutions for energy security in remote, northern and Indigenous communities, bioenergy, comparative energy policy and energy transitions, community energy development, and socio-economic impacts of renewable energy development in remote communities.

The University of Saskatchewan is one of Canada’s top 15 research-intensive universities. The University is located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, a city on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River known for its quality of life, diverse and thriving economic base, a vibrant arts community, and a full range of leisure opportunities. The University has a reputation for excellence in teaching, research and scholarly activities and offers a full range of undergraduate, graduate and professional programs to a student population of over 24,000. Its main campus is situated on Treaty 6 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis. We pay our respects to the First Nations and Métis ancestors of this place and reaffirm our relationship with one another. Together, we are uplifting Indigenization to a place of prominence at the University of Saskatchewan.

Qualifications

We are seeking candidates who demonstrate excellence, innovation, creativity, and leadership in research through an exceptional record of research excellence with demonstrated international status and impact in their field. The successful candidate will have a track record of leading a vibrant research program and a superior ability to secure competitive external research funding. Applicants will demonstrate excellence in teaching and graduate student and postdoctoral fellow supervision, a commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion in research design and research team formation, and the capacity to engage and inspire research teams from across the university and beyond to transform the energy security research landscape at USask and nationally. We emphasize that the successful candidate will be an internationally recognized research leader with experience in either academia, government, or the private sector. The nominee must be a full professor, or associate professor expected to be promoted to full professor within one or two years of the CERC nomination. Alternatively, if from outside of the academic sector, nominees must possess the qualifications necessary to be appointed at these levels.

The successful applicant will be appointed as a tenured faculty member and will be nominated for a Canada Excellence Research Chair.
