jobs description

We are looking for a senior researcher to join our team at the Sustainability Transition Policy chair at the Friedrich Alexander University in Nürnberg, Germany. The job description is found here: https://www.jobs.fau.de/jobs/akademischer-rat-m-f-d-sustainability-transition-policy-99634132/.

The Sustainability Transition Policy group at the FAU does problem-driven, interdisciplinary research about policies and strategies for the transition to climate neutrality in Germany, Europe and globally. The position is for an independent researcher, integrated in the team but with considerable freedom to pursue own research agendas within the broader agenda of the group, related to climate, energy and broader environmental policy topics. Our work together will focus on empirical energy and climate policy analysis, including the role of policy in past (successful and failed) transitions, and feedback between policies, technologies and systems. We will consider excellent candidates with either... qualitative or quantitative backgrounds; both are equally appropriate for the position. The position comes with standard teaching obligations for a full-time position (5 hours/week each semester).

The position is full time (100%). Working place is Nürnberg, with some possibility for remote work. For teaching, presence in Nürnberg is mandatory and not negotiable. For EU citizens, a civil servant position (salary tarif A13) is possible; for non-EU citizens, the position will be a regular postdoc position in salary group TV-L E13
