The Grantham Research Institute is a world-leading centre for the study of the economics and social sciences of climate change and other global environmental problems, based at the London School of Economics and Political Science. We produce both academic research and policy-oriented analysis for a wide audience.
We are looking for an experienced analyst to join the Institute’s sustainable finance team led by Professor in Practice Nick Robins. The successful candidate will co-lead programmes and projects to inform and influence how the work of central banks and financial supervisors can be aligned with net-zero targets and objectives, with a particular focus on emerging markets and developing economies. The successful candidate will play a leading role in the sustainable finance team and an active intellectual role in the life of the Grantham Research Institute.
The post-holder will have Masters or equivalent experience in environmental economics/policy, sustainable finance, economics, finance, management, or a related field, as well as strong knowledge and experience in the field of sustainable finance and policy, ideally with application to central banking and financial supervision in the emerging market and developing economy context.
The post-holder will also have experience of engaging with or working within financial policy institutions in the UK or overseas on issues relating to environmental risk, climate change, the net-zero transition, sustainable finance, climate policy or central banking. They will have experience of working in an international team of researchers, including coordinating the contribution of other project team members, working with senior colleagues and liaising with funders and have a strong international network of climate and development policy contacts in the public, private and third sectors.
Furthermore, they will have demonstrable analytical skills and ability to produce high-quality research-based policy reports in a timely manner, experience of conducting high-quality and policy-oriented analysis on sustainable finance with a focus on central banking and financial supervision in a professional capacity, as well as excellent communication skills, both written and oral, in English, with the ability to communicate technical issues to a non-technical audience.
