- Apply state-of-the-art quantitative and econometric methods to empirically investigate the effects of different policy instruments on economic and environmental outcomes.
- Summarise the main findings from the comparative analyses, both across and within countries and draw relevant policy conclusions.
- Contribute to all aspects of the preparation of empirical and/or modelling-related analytical reports. This includes carrying out econometric regressions, model simulations, analysis and interpretation of results, drafting of reports, presenting the work, and contributing to briefings for senior management.
Data collection and processing
- Gather and process data for cross-sections of countries from existing data sources, with a view toward applying them in comparative empirical analysis.
- Provide assistance to the Senior Economist to oversee the development of the data foundation for such work with a view to addressing policy relevant questions. This might include exploitation of a variety of different existing micro-data sets and/or contribute to the further development of spatial modelling framework for policy simulations.
Organisation-wide collaboration, liaison and outreach
- Maintain close contacts and good working relations with relevant staff in the Environment Directorate, other OECD Directorates, and other relevant Organisations;
- Maintain contacts with members of national delegations, other international organisations, representatives of industry, and other relevant institutions.
- Advanced university degree in environmental economics, urban economics or econometrics.
- Three to seven year’s experience in applied environmental economics analysis with a demonstrated interest in policy-relevant research.
- Proven experience in economic analysis of policy instrument choice for addressing environmental concerns and the relationship with key outcomes such as technological innovation, spatial planning and, firm and household behaviour.
- Experience in spatial general equilibrium modelling is an asset
- Very good knowledge of common statistical and econometric packages (particularly Stata and R).
- Excellent level of computer literacy and programming with relevant modelling software.
- Familiarity with state-of-the-art methods for spatial and GIS analysis and good command of GIS software would be an asset.
- Fluency in one of the two OECD official languages (English and French) and knowledge of the other, with a commitment to reach a good working level.
- Knowledge of other languages would be an asset.
- Please refer to the full list of OECD Core Competencies and the level 3 indicators.
