Postdoctoral Associate Position in Electricity Economics at Yale University

Postdoctoral Associate Position in Electricity Economics at Yale University

The Yale School of the Environment invites applications for a Postdoctoral Associate in Electricity Economics. The successful candidate will work on both their own research in energy and electricity economics and support a project funded by Iberdrola/Avangrid on the value of electricity storage from both the private perspective and social perspective.
