The Peng group in the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University is seeking applications for postdoctoral research associates or more senior research associate positions.
Dr. Wei Peng’s group (www.weipengenergy.com) focuses on modeling institutional and human dimensions of energy transition to identify realistic and robust decarbonization strategies and provide insights for integrated policy making for climate, energy, and health.
The researcher(s) is expected to contribute to one or both of the group’s core research areas:
(1) Realistic energy transition pathways: Incorporate political economy insights into energy system modeling to better represent social and political realities;
(2) Health effects of deep decarbonization: Identify features of energy strategies that can yield robust health benefits given deep future uncertainties.
Individuals with expertise in relevant modeling methods are encouraged to apply, including but not limited to integrated assessment modeling, energy system modeling, air quality modeling, and agent-based modeling. All candidates must have strong, demonstrated research ability, be very comfortable in an interdisciplinary research environment, have excellent English written and spoken communication skills, and a PhD in a relevant field.
