Postdoc in the Climate Policy department

The Climate Policy Department at DIW Berlin uses empirical and theoretical approaches to investigate the effectiveness and design options of policy instruments and regulatory frameworks for the transformation towards climate neutrality. The department focuses on the electricity and industry sector, sustainable finance, and international climate cooperation.

We are looking for a Postdoc (f/m/div)

interested in exploring one or more of the following questions: (i) how sustainable finance, (ii) how international climate finance or (iii) how energy and climate policies for the industry, power or building sectors can support the transition to climate neutrality. In addition to quantitative and theoretical economic approaches, methods from political science or finance may also be used.

The successful candidate will conduct research within the framework of multi-year cooperation projects with international partners. This allows for the development of research questions and discussion of interim results, insights and implications not only in an academic context but also with relevant stakeholders. The research produced in the course of the project will be aimed to publication in peer-reviewed journals as well as in policy reports.
