CPI-ISB Energy and Environment Program Researcher/Analyst

Hyderabad, India


The CPI-ISB Energy and Environment Program is a joint initiative between Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) and the Indian School of Business (ISB). CPI is a research foundation that examines the effectiveness of energy and climate policies around the globe, and helps frame future policies. CPI’s mission is to help nations achieve low-carbon development by evaluating their efforts to promote the new energy economy.  In seeking to deliver practical answers to these questions, CPI works with leaders at the highest levels of government, the private sector, and academia.  ISB is an internationally-ranked, premier business school.


The CPI-ISB Program is looking for talented and motivated individuals at various levels to provide research and analytical support. Under the supervision of the Program Director, researchers will work with government and business to help design policy options that are practical and implementable.

The researchers will be expected to work in conjunction with other CPI offices worldwide. Candidates are expected to demonstrate solid quantitative skills; business experience; a proven interest in climate change, clean technology or policy analysis; excellent written and oral communication skills; and an ability to generate actionable rather than academic insights.

The researchers will work on projects of both national and international scope. They will work in a challenging environment that requires independent thinking as well as collaboration and problem solving with team members, cross-disciplinary understanding, and professional interactions. Successful candidates will be expected to pursue robust and careful quantitative analysis.  Previous experience with climate policy, carbon markets or regulation would be valuable.

Qualified researchers will have the opportunity to work on certain select projects in direct support of the Executive Director, Chief Operating Officer, and funder of CPI.  We will place a premium on problem structuring, initiative, and flexibility in our hiring.


Includes the following and other duties as assigned:

• Perform rigorous quantitative evaluation of national and international climate and energy policies.
• Design and implement complex analytical research assignments.
• Understand and design financial models.
• Assist in the writing and editing of high-quality research products.

• Bachelor’s degree (BS or BA) required, preferably in one of the following: economics/finance, public policy, and engineering. Candidates with a strong finance background and/or a master’s degree (MS/MA/MBA) preferred.
• Required 1-3 years (3+ years preferred) of experience analyzing economics of policy choices, and/or energy and climate markets; government or multi-lateral experience valuable.
• Understanding of climate and energy policies in place and under discussion in relevant countries.
• An insightful, independent, analytical mind with a strong track record of applying sound political and strategic judgment in complex situations.
• Outstanding written and verbal communication skills. Ability to communicate complex qualitative and quantitative analyses to expert as well as non-technical audiences.
• Exceptional attention to detail and strong project management skills.
• Professionalism, enthusiasm for working as part of a team, and ability to interact with a diverse array of people.
