Kurzprofil der Stelle


World Bank Group - JPO, Development Economics Research Group, Washington


Junior Professional Officer (JPO), Washington
Sector/Unit: Development Economics Research Group (DECRG)
Duration: 2 years with the possibility of extension for another year
Please note that for participants of the JPO-Programme two years work experience are mandatory!
 

Main duties and responsibilities:

The assignment requires one JPO with a very strong technical background in applied macro- or microeconomics, including empirical and modeling skills; and a substantial capability to apply that technical background to the economics of greenhouse gas mitigation and its nexus with economic growth, including familiarity with relevant research and policy literature.   While the JPO would be located in DECRG, the position also would provide significant opportunities for interacting with operational colleagues and contributing to their knowledge needs. (All DECRG staff are required to devote 13 weeks of their work time each fiscal year to operational support activities.)  Depending on the opportunity for launching new projects, and the capabilities of the candidate, the JPO would carry out new research and/or contribute to ongoing research on climate change mitigation and/or adaptation in partnership with DECRG researchers and (as applicable) other research partners. The JPO also would take advantage of opportunities to work with colleagues in Bank operations on both analytical needs they identify, and the integration into operations of practical insights provided by DECRG research.


Profile of qualification:

Education:

  • Master’s degree with strong training in relevant theory and empirical skills. A PhD degree in economics is a big plus.


Experience:

  • At least 2 years of relevant work experience.
  • Very strong technical skills in applied macro- or microeconomics are essential.  A demonstrated capability to work with computable general equilibrium models, including the capability to extend the scope of such models, is a big plus.
  • Demonstrated knowledge of and capabilities in working on the economics of greenhouse gas mitigation and its nexus with economic growth also are essential. This could be demonstrated by advanced student research, or prior work experience with climate change economics (at least 2 years of such work experience is preferred). A record of published research output is a big plus.
  • Excellent presentation skills and proficiency with relevant software also are required. A record of research-derived blogs or similar written products is a plus.
  • A demonstrated record of a capability to be self-starting and focused on completing tasks in a timely manner is essential.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and a demonstrated capacity to work collaboratively, within a multi-cultural environment, are required.
  • A demonstrated intrinsic motivation to contribute to improving climate policy and development outcomes is a plus. This could be demonstrated by a track record in research that goes beyond analyzing problems to identifying practicable policy solutions. Another route to demonstrate intrinsic motivation is prior work experience on climate and development policy issues


Key Competencies:

Excellent oral and written communication skills in English are required.
