IIASA's Energy (ENE) Program is one of the leading scientific research institutions in the realm of integrated assessment of climate change and the transition towards a sustainable energy system.
As part of its mission, ENE hosts some 40+ instances of interactive scenario web databases. These databases form an integral part of the infrastructure for research conducted at ENE and in the wider integrated assessment research community, in particular the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the Integrated Assessment Modeling Consortium (IAMC).
These web databases are 3-Tier web applications (Web UI, JAVA servlets, ORACLE RDBMS) which have been designed and implemented over the past decade. The successful candidate will work with ENE colleagues and collaborators on bringing those tools up to date and work with them on developing our new IAM modeling platform to support energy- and climate-related research at ENE and the wider academic community, for example within the EU-funded Horizon 2020 projects "SET-Nav" and "CD-LINKS".

2. Postdoctoral Researcher
IIASA's Ecosystems Services and Management Program (ESM) conducts research on ecosystem management for the provision of services related to fiber, food, water and energy, in connection to economic, societal and environmental changes. The Program is renowned for its expertise in long-term global agricultural changes and food systems, and builds its competence by means of a pluridisciplinary team where quantitative analysis plays a strong role with a wide spectrum of models; from detailed process based biophysical models to global economic models. The Program is strongly connected to the international academic community, placing emphasis on transdisciplinary synergies and applied approaches. The work accomplished by the ESM Program has long been recognized through regular publications in high-ranking scientific journals. In addition, members of the ESM Program have been invited to participate in numerous policy-oriented consultations and large scale scientific exercises.
PhD or master's degree level with relevant experience in one of the subjects: Agricultural economics, mathematics, business informatics
Strong analytical and quantitative skills
Proven experience of large scale data analysis
Strong programming skills (GAMS, Python, R, ArcMap)
