The professorship is affiliated with DTU's Department of Technology, Management and Economics in the Division for Climate and Energy Policy. The expected start date is during the fall of 2024, but we are flexible on the start date.
The division is an interdisciplinary research unit addressing the societal aspects of the green transition and key policies to support it. We offer an excellent research environment with international staff, postdocs, and PhD students.
We deliver research-based insights to policymakers and industry professionals on climate mitigation, adaptation, and pathways for reducing carbon emissions and damage costs from climate change.
