The successful candidate will play a leading role in YISF’s ongoing research projects under the supervision of YISF Co-Directors Todd Cort and Dan Esty – as well as having an opportunity to pursue his or her own research.
This position offers a one-year opportunity with a possibility of reappointment for a second year upon satisfactory performance and availability of funding.
Consideration of applicants will begin immediately, but applications will be accepted until April 1, 2021 – or until the position is filled. The start date of the position is negotiable with an expectation that the Associate will begin in the June – August 2021 timeframe.
To Apply: Interested candidates should email a cover letter and their CV, along with a list of at least three references to Tyler Yeargain, Associate Director of the Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy at: email@example.com
The ideal candidate has a Ph.D. from a management school, economics program, or an environmental policy program (with strong economics/finance skills), and will have focused on topics related to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) metrics and reporting or on sustainable finance more broadly. He or she will have exceptional research, writing, and verbal communication skills, as well as an inclusive and flexible approach to collaborating with a diverse team of people and organizations.
