ESA-announce Post-doc in Environmental/Experimental economics
|Monash 2-year postdoctoral research fellow in environmental/experimental|
|Position Type: Post-Doc|
The Department of Economics at Monash University, in partnership with the Monash Sustainability Institute, seeks to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on a two-year basis. Major components of the research will be to assist in design, implementation, and analysis of consumer behavior and choice in a set of field experiments and household surveys.
The fellowship is in support of two major research grants, both in the area of water management and demand. The projects aim to generate research insights into consumer behavior both within and beyond the specific context of urban water. The successful candidate will have opportunity to co-author publications targeted for leading journals. The Research Fellow will report to the project leaders on these two grants, Prof Lata Gangadharan and Prof Michael Ward, respectively. The research team also includes Prof Quentin Grafton (ANU), and Dr Anke Leroux and Dr Paul Raschky.
A PhD in economics or a related field is desired, though applications from candidates close to completion will be considered. Strong skills in spoken and written English are required. Experience in implementing field experiments and/or consumer surveys is desirable.
The Monash Economics Department has particular strength in experimental and environmental/resource economics. It received the top research score in economics in the 2012 Australian Research Council assessment, and is well-ranked internationally in the RePEc/Ideas listings. Monash is located in Melbourne, named the world’s most livable city two years running by The Economist magazine.
Closing date: Thursday 6 June 2013, 11:55pm Australian Eastern Standard Time.
