Institute for Sustainable Energy: Postdoctoral Fellowships in Clean Energy

The Institute for Sustainable Energy (ISE) at Boston University seeks 2 post-doctoral fellows in the area of clean energy electricity grids. ISE is a university-wide nexus for research, education, and policy engagement in all areas of sustainable energy and climate policy, with particular emphasis on sustainable cities, climate policy, and the transformation of the electric power sector.

The postdoc fellow will be working on a multi-year industry-sponsored research project that explore national and transnational expansion of clean electricity systems. The project will examine the planning, financing, and regulatory issues presented by transnational power grids.  It will evaluate the clean energy potentials of key regions, the technical attributes of transmission systems capable of delivering this potential and economics and governance issues crucial to progress in this area.

Fellows are appointed for one year, beginning September 1, 2017. Applicants must have a PhD degree by starting date. 

Degrees in economics, finance, engineering, environmentally-focused natural sciences, business, public policy, statistics and others are relevant to the work of the Institute.
