Type of position
The Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) in Dublin has an active energy economics research group. We wish to recruit a research officer or senior research officer (lecturer or senior lecturer equivalent) to work on interdisciplinary projects in the Sustainable Electrical Energy Systems (SEES) research cluster, a collaborative venture funded by Science Foundation Ireland. Our partners in the SEES cluster include engineers, economists and mathematicians at University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, the University of Limerick and NUI Maynooth, as well as a large number of industry collaborators. The appointee will also hold an adjunct position at Trinity College Dublin.
In the context of the developing EU electricity market, the focus of the research is on how to regulate an ever more diverse, more decentralised, more volatile, less predictable electricity market in order to create a sustainable electrical energy system. Challenges include the introduction of high levels of renewable generating capacity, increased interconnection, new options for demand side management, growing micro-generation and the advent of electric vehicles.
Candidates must have a PhD in Economics and experience in research. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in energy economics and/or expertise in industrial organisation, applied econometrics, economic modelling or related fields.
Appointment will be made according to the selected candidate's experience.
