The research group Environmental Economics at the University of Basel, Switzerland, invites applications for a PhD position. The successful candidate will start on Feb 15th, 2023, or later (upon agreement).

Your position

The position is connected to ongoing research projects on energy and climate policy, in particular on novel modeling approaches to describe energy transitions. But the successful candidate will have ample opportunity to pursue own research interests in environmental or energy economics. In addition to research, the successful candidate will contribute to teaching environmental and resource economics at the University of Basel, in particular, by leading exercise sessions in BA-level classes and by contributing to teaching on the MSc-level. All classes are taught in English.



Your profile

Applicants should hold a Master's degree in economics, mathematics or related disciplines, will be fluent in English, and interested in pursuing an academic career. They should be willing to collaborate with members of the research team in ongoing projects and able to build up their own research portfolio, developing and following own research ideas. As our research team consists of members with scientific backgrounds, an interest in interdisciplinary work is important. The faculty of business and economics is committed to increasing the proportion of women and thus strongly welcomes female applicants.



We offer you

The research group Environmental Economics offers the opportunity to conduct high-level research in an inspiring environment, the opportunity for exchange and collaboration with other research groups of the department, an extensive network of research partners in Switzerland and abroad, and the chance to participate in courses of the Graduate School of Business and Economics at the University of Basel.

The position is funded for 4 years with an initial contract for 1 year. At the end of the first year, an assessment based on performance and a detailed research proposal for the PhD is made. In case of a positive assessment the contract is expanded to 4 years. Conditions of employment and salary are governed by the personnel and salary regulations of the University of Basel.

Application / Contact

Applications, including a curriculum vitae, a brief description of research interests, and a transcript (MSc and BA) should be submitted via the eRecruiting tool of the University of Basel (see the link below) until December 11th, 2022. We expect to conduct first job interviews online in December 2022.
