Research position in macroeconomic modeling at CICERO, Norway

CICERO seeks a researcher with background in macroeconomics. A core part of the research at the institute is to combine knowledge from different disciplines, and to put it in a global context. To do so, CICERO develops and applies models that can be integrated in a macroeconomic model, GRACE. The model comprises all world regions and assesses the economic impacts of climate policy and of impacts of climate change on figures in the national accounts in the different regions. To apply and further develop these tools, we seek a researcher with background in macroeconomics. Applicants must be interested in applying and integrating knowledge from other disciplines in economic analyses. This includes development of approaches to better represent the economic consequences of climate extremes and decision-making under uncertainty on the macro level. Doctoral degree or similar competence in macroeconomics is required, preferably with experience in development and use of computable general equilibrium models. The position requires ability to speak and write fluently in English and Norwegian.

CICERO Center for International Climate Research is a private foundation that for over 25 years has delivered interdisciplinary research of high scientific quality, including to the IPCC and the Arctic Council. Our research aims to provide knowledge that contributes to solving climate change related challenges and to strengthening the international climate collaboration. In international cooperation, CICERO researchers develop new knowledge about natural and anthropogenic climate change, the impacts of climate change, and how societies can adapt to and counteract the changes. CICERO employees have diverse backgrounds in the social and natural sciences. We count about 80 employees and are located in the Oslo Science Park.
