    Title: Postdoctoral Research Training Opportunity

    Institutions: The Air Pollution Prevention and Control Division (APPCD), Research Triangle Park (RTP)  http://orise.orau.gov/epa/applicants/description.aspx?JobId=18266

    Location: North Carolina, United States

    Deadline: 

    Project Description:

    A postdoctoral research training opportunity is available at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of Research and Development (ORD), National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL). The appointment will be with the Air Pollution Prevention and Control Division (APPCD) in Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina. 

    APPCD helps provide the basis for the formulation of EPA’s environmental policies and programs by playing a vital role in the EPA scientific research mission. APPCD helps develop and evaluate solutions to environmental problems faced by EPA, local and state agencies, and the public; provides information and tools that enable EPA to develop cost effective and sustainable approaches to protecting human health and the environment; and supports EPA’s environmental protection goals by providing direct support to EPA’s regulatory and voluntary programs and by developing and evaluating emissions measurement, emissions control, and cost effective risk management strategies. APPCD concentrates efforts in four research areas:

    • Climate Change/Technology Assessment,
    • Source/Emissions Characterization,
    • Combustion/Emission Control, and
    • Indoor Air Quality. 

    The research participant will conduct research in the development of novel approaches to energy system modeling and life cycle assessment to capture a broad range of direct and indirect environmental impacts that can affect communities. S/he will research how linkages between energy scenarios and life cycle assessment can be made, identify existing work in the literature that makes these connections, and explore the challenges associated with translating that information in a format that has utility to U.S. communities. S/he will use ORD’s regional-level MARKAL energy system model and U.S. 9-region database (EPAUS9r) to quantify possible future regional energy mixes. Life Cycle Assessment factors using tools such as the Tool for the Reduction and Assessment of Chemical and Other Environmental Impacts (TRACI) will then allow the associated local and supply chain impacts to be quantified. The research participant will then explore how to scale these portfolios and their impacts to a community level.  

    The goal of this research project is to examine the broad environmental consequences of community-level decisions in the context of the regional energy mixes. Therefore, the scope of the analysis would ideally include all of the sectors in the energy system, including resource supply, renewable and fossil, electric power production, refineries, and end-use sectors including transportation, residential, commercial and industrial. However, depending on the timing and complexity of the problem, the research participant may chose to focus on specific sectors, issues, impacts or supply chains to research in greater depth. 

    The research participant will gain experience in the following:

    • Energy systems modeling and life cycle assessment.
    • Interpreting modeling results.
    • Navigating datasets for life cycle and energy technology characterization.
    • Identifying possibilities for, and barriers to, integration of datasets relevant to energy system analysis and life cycle assessment.
    • The application of system and life cycle tools for energy analysis at the community level.
    • Collaboration with a diverse set of researchers, including energy system modelers, life cycle analysts, and other research efforts in the Sustainable and Health Communities Research Program. (Will include travel to the Cincinnati-based laboratory)
    • Preparing presentations and papers, including those for non-technical groups, including outreach and communication to community and educational groups.

    Through these activities, the research participant will gain a better understanding of the complexities of energy system choices at the community scale and an understanding of how to analyze the broader life cycle impacts of energy supply chains in communities.

    Qualifications:

    Applicants must have received a doctoral degree in quantitative analysis, engineering, physical sciences, operations research, economics, decision analysis, statistics or related interdisciplinary field within five years of the desired starting date, or completion of all requirements for the degree should be expected prior to the starting date. Experience with life cycle assessment, energy modeling, and the application of tools such as optimization, simulation, and/or system dynamics modeling is desired. 

    The program is open to all qualified individuals without regard to race, sex, religion, color, age, physical or mental disability, national origin, or status as a Vietnam era or disabled veteran. U. S. citizenship or lawful permanent resident status is preferred (but a candidate also may hold an appropriate visa status; an H1B visa is not appropriate). Guidelines for non-U.S. citizens may be found at http://orise.orau.gov/epa/applicants/immigration.htm

    The appointment will be full-time for one year and may be renewed upon recommendation of EPA and contingent on the availability of funds. The participant will receive a monthly stipend. Funding may be made available to reimburse the participant's travel expenses to present the results of his/her research at scientific conferences. No funding will be made available to cover travel costs for pre-appointment visits, relocation costs, tuition and fees, or a participant's health insurance. The participant must show proof of health and medical insurance. The participant does not become an EPA employee.

    Technical Questions:

    The mentor for this project is Dr. Rebecca Dodder (dodder.rebecca@epa.gov). 

    How to Apply:

    An application can be found at http://orise.orau.gov/epa/applicants/application.htm. Please reference Project # EPA-ORD/NRMRL-APPCD-2015-04 when calling or writing for information.

    Work description

    In a resource-constrained world the need for a transition from linear to circular economy is urgent. MISTRA REES - Resource-Efficient and Effective Solutions based on circular economy thinking - is a 4-year research program that addresses design of products, services, businesses models and policy for resource efficiency. The program brings together leading Swedish universities, large and small companies and societal actors to advance the transition of Swedish manufacturing industry towards a circular economy. Research team comprises 9 senior researchers and 9 PhD students from three Swedish universities (Linköping, Lund and Chalmers), who will work in close collaboration.

    The IIIEE at Lund university is looking to recruit a doctoral candidate to research about policies for REES. The aim of this research is to provide an overview, analysis and recommendations for policy and policy packages of relevance for REES. It will identify what policies enable, facilitate or act as obstacles for resource-efficient and effective business models, products and processes in Sweden, Europe and internationally. It will also develop policy packages and an implementation map to support policymaking in Sweden and beyond. The research will build upon knowledge from case studies where policy-relevant variables will be identified. This research will combine available knowledge about policies in various jurisdictions with new empirical data from surveys and interviews with industries and experts. Webinars and workshops will be used to analyse and devise policy packages. The following questions will be explored: how can legal frameworks, policy instruments, and policy packages for REES be formed to ensure policy effectiveness and efficiency, not only in policy formulation but also in policy implementation stages? Knowledge co-creation is at the heart of this research.

    Qualifications

    To be considered for the position, the prospective candidate should hold a Masters degree in relevant preferably multi-disciplinary education, e.g. law or/and policy studies with a focus on sustainability and environmental policy. Degree or a course in sustainability or environmental management/policy is a requirement. The applicant must have the capacity to independently carry out and successfully finalise research, to participate in PhD courses, have the ability to create own research and societal networks and to write academic papers. The applicant should have good communication and cross-cultural skills. She/he is expected to teach in Masters Programmes run by the IIIEE in English; therefore good skills in verbal and written English are required. Good command of Swedish is preferred.

    Description of work

    In a resource-constrained world the need for a transition from linear to circular economy is urgent. MISTRA REES - Resource-Efficient and Effective Solutions based on circular economy thinking - is a 4-year research program that addresses design of products, services, businesses models and policy for resource efficiency.

Research team comprises 9 senior researchers and 9 PhD students from three Swedish universities (Linköping, Lund and Chalmers), who will work in close collaboration.

    The IIIEE at Lund university is looking to recruit two doctoral candidates to research on business models for REES. The aim of this research is to advance the academic and practical knowledge on business models for REES. The main focus is on understanding how business models are being developed in Swedish industry, what design methods are being used by the companies and organisations, and in what way they lead to circular economy. The research will evaluate both the design tools that have been employed by companies and the potential of the developed business models in terms of resource efficiency and sustainability. The ambition is to advance the state of the art in developing business models that have a high potential for REES. By drawing on management and business models literature, product and service design and sustainability evaluations of different types of business models, this research will fill the existing gap in knowledge about business models with a high potential for REES. The research will be based on close working relations with participating companies and rely on interviews, surveys, case studies, focus groups and workshops as the main data collection methods. Knowledge co-creation is at the heart of this research.
