Description of the position as Tenure Track on carbon pricing
Carbon pricing has expanded across the globe and both conceptual/theoretic and empirical research is needed to develop instruments and address economic preconditions and impacts; e.g. regarding implementation and incentives, costs, effectiveness and distribution. The selected candidate is expected to conduct research to underpin solution oriented efforts, as national decision makers need to be informed about options to implement carbon pricing policy instruments and concepts and their relative effectiveness in reducing emissions, costs, distributional effects etc.

The selected candidate is expected to develop interdisciplinary collaboration within iClimate Centre and the Department and bridge with other departments at the university, as well as relevant national and international research communities. Focus is expected to be on grand solutions including development of tools, guidance and advice to policy makers and stakeholders on rapidly transforming energy systems, urban systems and production systems towards a carbon neutral and resilient society.

Specifically, the position is expected to undertake comparative studies of evolving carbon pricing schemes in Europe and globally, to develop analysis, ex-post and ex-ante, of their contributions and significance in reducing emissions, including mapping coverage and exemption arrangements. Attention may also be awarded possible pricing of agricultural GHG emissions. With these data, the position will develop new and improved methods to assess the significance and contributions of carbon pricing schemes in reducing emissions and delivering on INDCs under the Paris Agreement, thus extending previous AU research.

The candidate is expected to work cross-disciplinarily in teams collaborating with researchers of different disciplines and to contribute to both research, teaching, and research-based policy advice of relevant regulatory authorities (national and EU) and private organizations as lead and/or in a team with other researchers. Further, the position involves responsibility for attracting highly competitive national and international funding, industry collaboration as well as student supervision in the area of carbon pricing.

Qualification Requirements
The position requires that the candidate has demonstrated knowledge in one or more of the above topics related to carbon pricing schemes, preferably in Europe and/or globally. A candidate with a strong background in economics or political science with experience in interdisciplinary approaches will be preferred. Specific expertise in one or more of the following research methods is advantageous: advanced time-series analysis, panel regressions, energy or transport modelling, micro- and/or macro econometric models and comparative design.

A significant track-record of successful external research funding, as well as a significant publication record in high-level, international, peer-reviewed journals are desirable. As part of the tenure, the candidate should be able to demonstrate research leadership and ability to attract large research projects and to successfully participate in supervision of PhD students and Master theses/Bachelor projects. Experience in conducting consultancy/advisory projects as well as in delivering high-quality undergraduate/graduate teaching is desirable.

Applicants should as a minimum hold scientific qualifications equivalent to a PhD level, have some years of highly productive post-graduate research and publication experience with high-level peer-reviewed journals, and must have a proven extensive international research collaboration (e.g. joint papers and proposals).

Furthermore, the candidate is expected to be enthusiastic about working in an interdisciplinary academic environment, possess good communication skills and have an ability to provide inspiration and guidance for colleagues. The position, therefore, requires a highly motivated scientist who is comfortable working in teams.

  • PhD degree and postdoc research experience within the relevant research area
  • Proven publication record in international peer-reviewed ISI journals
  • Teaching experience
  • Experience in international research collaboration and networking
  • Emphasis will be put on the ability to communicate research results at all levels, including scientific advice to public sector authorities.
