Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Center for Energy Studies (“CES”) at the Louisiana State University (“LSU”) seeks applicants at the Assistant or Associate Professor-Research rank. We are seeking applicants with a strong background in energy and/or environmental economics. This is a non-teaching position that emphasizes research, both academic and externally-funded, public speaking, and service.

While economists from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply, specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

• oil and gas development
• electric power industry analysis
• natural gas and electricity usage modeling
• industrial energy usage
• energy infrastructure development
• energy finance
• energy law and regulation
• renewable energy
• energy efficiency

LSU CES was created by the Louisiana Legislature in 1982. Therefore, while strong academic credentials will be important, equally as important is strong communication skills, the ability to establish and maintain relationships with local stakeholders, and a research agenda focused on Gulf Coast and Louisiana-specific energy and environmental topics. While the position is supported through a state appropriation, successful candidates will be expected to develop a funded research agenda.

LSU is committed to diversity and is an equal opportunity/equal access employer
