Post-Doctoral Research Opportunity

The Sustainable and Resilient Economy (SRE) program 
<https://discovery.osu.edu/focus-areas/sustainable-economy/> at The Ohio 
State University <http://www.osu.edu> has an opening for a post-doctoral 
research position with interdisciplinary work in Sustainable 
Engineering. The ideal candidate will hold a Ph.D. degree in an area 
related to Sustainability Science or Sustainable Engineering and a 
demonstrated ability to perform interdisciplinary research at the 
interface of engineering, environmental sciences, economics, social 
sciences and policy. Research skills should include areas such as 
engineering design and optimization, life cycle assessment, applied 
statistics, and modeling of economic and ecological systems. The ability 
and willingness to learn new subject matter and work in a collaborative, 
interdisciplinary team environment are essential. The initial 
appointment will be for one year with the possibility of renewal.

This position is supported by the Sustainable and Resilient Economy 
program, part of the Ohio State University’s Discovery Themes initiative 
(www.discovery.osu.edu/sre <http://www.discovery.osu.edu/sre>). The 
candidate’s work will be directed by Professor Bhavik Bakshi 
<http://cbe.osu.edu/people/bakshi.2> and additional members of a 
multidisciplinary research team that takes a holistic approach to 
understanding how production and consumption systems are linked to 
ecological systems and how society can achieve greater value in more 
sustainable and resilient development. The SRE program aims to develop 
and apply integrated assessment methods to guide practical solutions 
from local to global scales that enhance the efficiency of material and 
energy inputs, reduce adverse environmental and social impacts and 
protect critical ecosystem services.

Interested candidates should forward their letter of application, CV and 
names of three references to Melissa Amos ([log in to unmask]), SRE 
Program Coordinator.
