Position description

The Environmental Markets Lab (emLab) is seeking up to 3 postdoctoral researchers to lead in the development and execution of applied and/or academic research projects in environmental and resource economics. The successful candidate will contribute to one or more of emLab's focus areas in climate and energy, land and freshwater, ocean and fisheries, and people and poverty.

The Environmental Markets Lab is an interdisciplinary team of scientists based at UC Santa Barbara's Bren School of Environmental Science & Management and Economics Department that conducts cutting-edge, data-driven research on the power, limitations, and design of market-based approaches to tackle pressing environmental problems. In collaboration with implementing partners, emLab aims to better align environmental objectives and economic incentives in support of sustainable livelihoods and a resilient planet. We endeavor to foster an inclusive, collaborative work environment to bring interdisciplinary expertise to solve critical environmental problems.

The ideal candidate(s) should have training in economic theory, econometrics, and/or other quantitative research tools and an interest and track record in publishing in top science and/or economics journals. They will have the opportunity to work with the eleven emLab principal investigators and will report directly to the principal investigator who most closely aligns with their area of interest. The successful candidate(s) will have flexibility to contribute to the emLab projects they are most interested in, and can also allocate a fraction of their time to their own research.

The research work will be conducted solely in California and the on-site work location is in Santa Barbara, California.

Salary is competitive, commensurate with the applicant's qualifications.

Full benefits package included. Postdoctoral benefits are included (http://hr.ucsb.edu/benefits/postdoc.php).

The position is available immediately and will be open until filled.
