Current Economist Openings


NCEE does not have any current openings for Post-Doctoral Candidates in 2012.

As an illustration, here is a prior posting in 2010. When in the future NCEE has openings, the posting for this position may look similar to what follows.

The US EPA’s National Center for Environmental Economics (NCEE) is seeking a post-doctoral candidate interested in contributing to better environmental decision-making by advancing the theory and practice of economics and risk analysis within the EPA. NCEE is EPA’s center of expertise for cutting-edge research and analysis in environmental economics (see www.epa.gov/economics). Positions are located in Washington, DC.

The position involves conducting original research on economic and related analytic methods; providing technical advice and assistance to EPA offices and other parties on such methods; leading production of cross-Agency economic reports; and promoting consistency in the preparation and presentation of economic information in the Agency. We particularly welcome individuals with experience in: behavioral economic methods; integrating engineering and economic analysis methods; computable general equilibrium modeling; and valuation of the economic benefits of protecting human health and ecological services. Specific research projects will be designed as appropriate to the selected candidate's expertise and interests, and the needs of OPEI/NCEE.
