The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) seeks an energy policy economist to join our team as a resident scholar.

The resident scholar will pursue a research agenda focused on domestic energy markets and policy, providing economic analysis of current policy and formulating solutions that will frame future debates. This resident scholar will actively explore the intersection of domestic energy resource development and economic growth, examining in detail the benefits and shortfalls of differing energy policy paths. Applicants should have a PhD in economics. Five to ten years working in a policy-related field or teaching policy-relevant courses is preferred.

This scholar is expected to produce academic research suitable for publication in top-level, peer-reviewed journals and to present at academic conferences. The scholar should also demonstrate aptitude for and interest in communicating research findings and their policy implications—in writing and in speech—to journalists, policymakers and other non-academics active in formulating public policy. The scholar is also encouraged to produce research and writing suitable for our many in-house publication outlets and public conferences.

AEI scholars operate at the intersection of scholarship and politics, aiming to elevate public debate and improve the substance of government policy. Therefore, the ability to effectively communicate the policy implications of technical, academic research to a non-academic audience, or the desire to learn how to do so, is a plus, as is the desire to build relationships within the policy community.

AEI is a private, not-for-profit public policy research organization committed to expanding liberty, increasing individual opportunity, and strengthening the free enterprise system. Our community of scholars pursues these unchanging ideals through independent thinking, open debate, reasoned argument, facts, and the highest standards of research and exposition. AEI scholars are fully supported with access to dedicated, capable research assistants, research tools, and our communications support staff. Founded in 1938 and located in Washington, D.C., AEI is one of America's largest and most respected non-partisan "think tanks."

Qualified applicants should submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and a writing sample with their online application at
