We are seeking an experienced Research Analyst for our Energy Finance research work with a focus on Gas/LNG reporting to our Lead Energy Finance Analyst, on Australian Gas/LNG. The Institute of Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) is a remote working organisation with a small Sydney office. This is a new position enabled by the continued growth of the IEEFA.
The candidate will have a degree in Finance, Accounting or Energy Engineering. In addition, finance and energy related industry experience where a track record of innovative and evidence-based research leading to change will be highly regarded.
We value great attention to detail, and those who are self-directed and motivated will be an ideal fit for our small team. Strong communication, outreach skills and a passion for making a difference on climate change through evidence-based research will also be key. Industry connections that enable engagement and collaboration with stakeholders working in policy, industry and finance are desirable.
The Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) is a not for profit organisation that conducts research and analyses on financial and economic issues related to energy and the environment. We are an independent global energy finance think tank www.ieefa.org. The Institute’s mission is to accelerate the transition to a diverse, sustainable and profitable energy economy.
Our dynamic Australian based team works collaboratively with IEEFA’s eight international offices across different research areas including the coal, gas and electricity markets. While a base in Sydney would help on collaboration, working remotely is entirely feasible for the right candidate.
The overall purpose of the role is to conduct and disseminate financial analysis relating to the Australian Gas/LNG sector and the global transition to renewable energy. The role is designed to support the work of our Lead Analyst and to increase capacity in our Australian Gas/LNG research and outreach work.
You are keen to undertake valuable research and have a passion for the financial and economic issues that relate to energy. You would like to use your industry acquired skills and to make a positive change through your work. You have the ability to leverage engagement, drive measurable results that deliver positive outcomes and advance the transition to renewables through exceptional financial modelling and research.
You are highly self-motivated and may work remotely as negotiated. You have a positive, enquiring attitude, a desire to learn, to teach and also to collaborate with others.
Full time 12 month contract with the option of extension by mutual agreement; FTE range $80-$90k + super, depending upon experience.
