PhD candidate position in energy economics

The candidate’s research will include the development of a power market model to quantitatively study and assess the consequences of the transformation of the European power system and the evolution of market designs. This research may for instance consider the question of investments in flexible technologies (and the incentives sent by short-term markets), the functioning of a power system with high shares of variable renewables or the consequences of non-harmonized capacity mechanisms. The PhD candidate will collaborate closely with several PhD students and post-docs already working on power system modelling within the energy team of Deloitte Economic Advisory, always eager to share their knowledge and move the research frontier a step ahead.

Application Deadline: Starts autumn 2018
Where: Paris, France
