Our work promotes sound policymaking, efficient markets, and public understanding of energy and its interaction with the economy and the environment.

We are searching for candidates who qualify as statisticians, mathematical statisticians, economists, and general engineers. Although we prefer degrees in mathematics, statistics, economics, operations research, and engineering for entry-level positions, degrees in social sciences or business may qualify as well, especially if you have an emphasis on statistical data gathering and analysis. We also are looking for graduates who have taken courses in regression and linear modeling, in exploratory data analysis, and in econometrics.

Beyond the technical qualifications, we seek intelligent, flexible, and motivated employees who have good team skills and who like to think critically, innovate, and solve problems. Effective writing skills are also a definite plus.
