Location: New Haven, CT

The Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies seeks an innovative scholar working in energy systems analysis for an open-rank tenured or tenure-track faculty appointment. Applicants should have a substantial record of research accomplishments covering more than one of engineering, social, and environmental sciences as they relate to energy use, supply, and systems. Research should be quantitative and grounded in an interdisciplinary approach that bridges the social and biophysical sciences. Areas of research focus could include energy system transitions, technology assessment, market and nonmarket aspects of energy policy design, innovation and technology diffusion, energy demand drivers, and the interaction of multiple objectives with the energy system, including the energy/water/food/materials nexus.

The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the School’s strategic goals in energy and climate change mitigation through scholarship, research excellence, teaching, advising, and engagement with industry, government, and/or NGO communities.
