The Sustainable and Resilient Economy (SRE) program at The Ohio State 
University has an opening for a post-doctoral research fellow to perform 
interdisciplinary work on the dynamics and control of sustainable and 
resilient systems. The appointee will have the opportunity to develop 
quantitative modeling skills and knowledge, while taking a substantive 
role in cutting-edge research on developing new sustainability and 
resilience assessment methods.

The ideal candidate will hold a Ph.D. degree in Sustainable Engineering 
or a related field and a demonstrated ability to perform 
interdisciplinary research at the interface of engineering, 
environmental sciences, human behavior and policy. Research skills in 
areas such as dynamics and control of technological, ecological, and 
economic systems, life cycle assessment, and applied statistics are most 
desirable. 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 up to two years with the 
possibility of renewal.

The candidate’s work will be directed by Dr. Bhavik Bakshi, Professor of 
Chemical and
Biomolecular Engineering, as well as additional members of a 
multidisciplinary research team that includes engineers, economists, 
behavioral scientists, and environmental scientists. The candidate will 
join a vibrant and growing community of scholars at OSU who are 
developing new integrated assessment methods to guide practical 
solutions 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.
