Climate Policy Postdoc

 The the newly established FutureLab at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) is looking to hire a postdoctoral researcher on causal climate policy analysis.

The successful candidate will be involved in a joint research project with Nicolas Koch (MCC and IZA) and Felix Pretis (University of Victoria and University of Oxford) that seeks to provide a global and cross-sectoral causal evaluation of effective climate policies. We expect the candidate to co-lead policy-oriented and data-intensive econometric research that builds on and further develops our prior work. The goal is to pair machine learning with program evaluation tools to estimate causal treatment effects in settings in which standard methods are limited.


  • PhD (or be close to finishing their PhD) in economics or a related field,
  • strong skills in econometric methods as well as expertise and research interest in environmental and climate change economics,
  • strong coding skills are a prerequisite, especially in R
