PostDoc, Multiregional input-output model development and impact assessment

The Industrial Ecology Program (IndEcol), Department of Energy and Process Engineering (EPT) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is seeking a Post-Doctoral Scholar for the continued development, updating and scientific application of the environmentally extended multiregional input-output model EXIOBASE and the global life cycle impact assessment methodology LC-IMPACT.

EXIOBASE and LC-IMPACT  are two major pillars of the digital research infrastructure of the Industrial Ecology Programme as well as of the Industrial Ecology community (together over 80,000 downloads in the last years). The successful applicant will take responsibility for maintaining and extending this infrastructure, with a focus on Open Science/FAIR data and code management. The outcome of this process will be a fully automated, parallelized data pipeline integrated into the NTNU digital infrastructure (OpenStack and HPC cluster). Another major part of the work will be the further increase of the uptake of these databases through web-presence development, development and end-user focused software and workshops/presentations of these at relevant conferences.

Duties of the position

  • Maintain, refine and extend the EXIOBASE and LC-IMPACT data pipeline

  • Translate and integrate previous MatLAB scripts into Python

  • Integrate methodological outcomes of previous and current projects into both data-pipelines

  • Draft and submit scientific manuscripts and present at scientific conferences

  • Developing, improving, and revising documentation, web-presence and visualizations

  • Identify novel research topics and lead publications efforts

  • Co-supervise PhD and Master’s students.
