  • Document the methodology developments and contribute to drafting reports. 

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities

  • Experience in energy system modelling, simulation, and analysis is an asset.
  • Ability to develop in C, Python, Julia/JuMP or other programming languages.
  • Ability to conduct independent research using different data sources.
  • Ability to meet deadlines.
  • Some knowledge of linear or mixed-integer linear programming is an asset.

Qualifications and Experience

  • University degree in Climate/Environment Sciences, Economics, Modelling, Programming, or a related field.

Applicant Eligibility

  • Candidates must be a minimum of 20 years of age and have completed at least three years of full-time studies at a university or equivalent institution towards the completion of a first degree.
  • Candidates may apply up to one year after the completion of a bachelor's, master's or doctorate degree.
