Governance of climate and energy transformation is one of CET's core competence areas, and we are now looking for a postdoctoral fellow in a three year position to develop our research in this area:

The postdoctoral fellow is expected to conduct her/his/their own project related to the governance of climate and energy transformation. By the term governance we understand the institutional, political, and social elements involved in sustaining the system needed to ensure climate and energy transformation – including political action and decisions, values, norms and language, organizational structures, distribution of power, and more. We welcome perspectives from different interdisciplinary frameworks based in the social sciences.

The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to take a leading role in initiating research activities, such as proposals, seminars and publications that provide opportunities for other researchers in the group, particularly PhD candidates. The postdoc will have their workplace at CET and is expected to contribute to making CET a dynamic and productive academic environment.

Applicants are expected to submit a research statement that describes how their competence contributes to research on the governance of climate and energy transformation. The choice of empirical focus is open, and candidates with an interdisciplinary background within the qualitative social sciences are especially welcome to apply. Postdocs hired at CET tend to have an emerging record of publications and/or policy-relevant work experience...
