Job Description
Energy and Environment Modeler
The role:

The US Center of the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI US) seeks an experienced modeler to join our Energy Modeling Program. SEI is an independent international research organization working on sustainable development issues at local, national, and global policy levels.

The Energy Modeling Program, based in Somerville, Massachusetts, develops quantitative modeling tools and techniques and conducts modeling and policy support projects worldwide. This work centers on modeling energy systems but includes analyses of greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions, the water-energy-food nexus, macroeconomic systems, and Sustainable Development Goals. The Program emphasizes projects in low and middle-income countries but also carries out assignments in the US and Europe.

Much of the Energy Modeling Programís work involves developing, supporting and applying SEIís LEAP (Low Emissions Analysis Platform) and NEMO (Next Energy Modeling system for Optimization) software. As a member of the team, you would be expected to work with LEAP and NEMO and to help others around the world use these tools.

Key responsibilities:

- Build and apply models of energy and economic systems, energy technologies, climate change mitigation measures, and other sustainable-development-related policy interventions. Our current projects are particularly focused on electricity-sector modeling.
- Plan and implement innovative research projects that use quantitative modeling and analysis to inform energy, climate, and development policy.
- Research modeling tools and methods and help develop SEIís modeling toolkit.
- Collaborate with and support researchers and policy makers using LEAP and NEMO and help enhance their technical and analytical capacity.
- Travel internationally as needed (expected 4-6 times per year once COVID-19 has receded).
- Produce, review, and edit technical reports, academic papers, briefs, and presentations on modeling and policy research.
- Maintain and build relationships with existing funders and partners and develop new funding opportunities.
- Explore joint research opportunities and collaborate with colleagues at SEI US and other SEI centers.
- Raise the profile of SEIís research by presenting, publishing, and communicating externally.

Who you are:

You should have a keen interest in sustainability research, capacity building, and using your technical skills to help understand the major environmental and sustainability challenges the world is facing in the twenty-first century. You will work as part of a team in a flexible and exciting research environment.

Qualifications & Requirements
Required qualifications and experience

The successful applicant will have:

- Significant experience working with energy and environmental models such as LEAP, TIMES/MARKAL, OSeMOSYS, MESSAGE, or similar.
- An advanced degree in a related field (preferably Ph.D.).
- Expertise in energy and environmental policy, climate change mitigation, and sustainable development.
- Excellent writing and presentation skills (for both technical and non-technical audiences) and a record of publishing and presenting research results in academic, policy, or other fora.
- Demonstrated task management capabilities.
- Fluency in spoken and written English.
- Proven success working with a range of partners, such as research institutes, governments, and other nonprofit organizations.
- Strong leadership, technical, communications, interpersonal, and networking skills.

Desirable qualifications:

- Expertise with optimization, system dynamics, agent-based, macroeconomic, or similar modeling techniques.
- Proficiency in one or more languages other than English (French, Spanish, and Russian highly desirable).
- Experience with computer programming to build or facilitate building quantitative models and/or web sites.
- A record of developing and securing funding for new research projects.
