General Information

The Climate Policy group frequently takes on new members who are post-doctoral researchers, PhD students, student interns, and master's degree students writing their thesis. In all cases we are interested in highly creative people, who are interested in conducting scientific research that can contribute to effective climate policy development, and who contribute to the intellectual and cultural diversity of the group.

We are, however, limited in our ability to take on new members based on our financial budget, a fixed amount of office space, and a limited time capacity to provide effective and constructive supervision for younger scientists. Currently, the group is at its full possible size, and we are not accepting applications for new post-docs or PhD students. Each week we receive several requests from people to consider their application, including those who would bring their own source of funding, and can not respond to every inquiry personally. Only in exceptional cases do we consider applications: from highly qualified people with a demonstrated track record and excellent research proposal in our field (climate policy), and with her or his own source of funding. When this situation changes, and we are able to consider applications more generally, we will announce new openings on this page.

We do take on new master's students each semester, to write their thesis, typically under the supervision of one of the post-docs in our group. We welcome interested students to contact us. We also consider applications for student interns on a case-by-case basis, and welcome interested students to contact us.
