The Climate Policy Lab at the Center for International Environment and Resource Policy (CIERP) at The Fletcher School, Tufts University, seeks two post-doctoral research fellows to work on the environmental consequences of foreign direct investment. In particular, the post-doctoral fellows will investigate the development of low-carbon energy sources in developing countries as a result of Chinese overseas investment through the Belt and Road Initiative.
The research fellow will participate in the Climate Policy Lab’s monthly seminar, biweekly group meetings, and will mentor more junior members of the group. The research fellow is expected to produce 1-2 publishable academic papers, a discussion paper to be published by the Center, and at least one blog post. The research fellow is also expected to help brief research results to funders, policy makers, and other stakeholders. The research fellow will also be flexible in contributing to other projects of the Climate Policy Lab as required.
Each post-doctoral fellowship is for one year, renewable for a second year at the discretion of the director. Fellows will receive salary, benefits, and support for research in the field.
