As well as providing technical input into multiple projects and managing or directing projects as appropriate, as the HoPSA you will provide training, mentoring and support to the team, and liaise with other key roles (Team Leads, Heads of, Directors) to ensure an efficient and smooth team operation.

Your Responsibilities:
• Represent the group as a leading consultancy in Power (and Renewables) to the industry from the position of HoPSA;

Berkeley Lab’s Energy Analysis and Environment Impacts (EAEI) Division has an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow to join the Energy Efficiency for Development (EE4D) program and it’s new activity on Gender Equality and Energy Efficiency.

EE4D is a global program which provides technical resources and expert advice to developing countries to support energy efficiency improvements in order to promote a more resilient, inclusive, and sustainable economic development. The Gender Equality and Energy Efficiency project has a goal to unlock the benefits of modern energy access for women and enhance their role as agents of change in promoting clean, affordable, and efficient energy use in Africa.

In this role, you will develop surveys for data collection, analyze data, develop cost-benefit assessments, and end-use energy consumption modeling tools that show the impact and economic opportunities for increasing access to efficient use of electricity for women. Additionally, this role will involve stakeholder engagement, community engagement, and outreach communication strategies to increase project impacts.
