Position Highlights
Institute for Energy Solutions in Arizona Institute for Resilience at the University of Arizona is in search of an RECI Fellow (Postdoctoral Research Associate I). The fellowship will begin in Fall 2024 and will be funded for three academic years. Depending on work performance and funding, this position can be extended. Applicants with financial support from other sources are welcome to apply. The Fellow will be responsible for two separate initiatives. The first will be to contribute to the development of a Living Implementation Guide, which will include best practices, tools, education, and other resources to help communities undertake the adoption and implementation of advanced building codes. The second will be to conduct a sociotechnical study of the code change process itself, with the intent of advancing scientific, academic, and institutional knowledge. The broader study should be informed by and contribute to the broader academic literature on standards and regulation, with specific products, such as white papers and conference presentations, making contributions by equipping key decisionmakers with data-driven findings informed by social science research.

Institute for Energy Solutions (IES) is a member institution of the Arizona Institute for Resilience (AIR). IES provides a hub for cross-college energy science, policy and technology research and development, which benefits the public and enhances the land-grant mission of the University of Arizona. The Institute is a platform for energy experts, who work closely with industry, NGOs, government, and communities to address emerging energy challenges and opportunities.

IES works to advance research, outreach and educational activities at the University of Arizona, focused on creating safe, resilient, and secure Energy Solutions. The institute builds on the success of the University of Arizona Renewable Energy Network (UAREN) to create an organization that expands the collaboration with others to respond to the deeply interrelated sustainability issues associated with the energy-water-food nexus and implements solutions that reach under-served populations on a regional scale.

Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, vision, and life insurance; paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; access to UA recreation and cultural activities; and more!
