EDHECinfra is a team of 20 people based in Singapore and London, that creates and delivers exciting new data to the private infrastructure investment sector. Created in 2016 at EDHEC Business School, EDHECinfra has launched an index platform in 2019 that is now used by major investors around the world to research and benchmark their infrastructure portfolio and strategy.
The SRE will critically analyse the feasibility, impact potential and risks of transition pathways designed for various industry sectors taking into account physical, technological and economic/financial limits as well as geopolitical and social dimensions. Building on the knowledge developed at the sector level, the SRE will develop methodologies to assess the ambition, credibility, and risks of transition plans put forward at the company level, with particular focus on the feasibility and adequacy of the proposed course of actions from the points of view of targeted market shares/revenues, technological deployment, and capital expenditures. The SRE will author research publications, methodological briefs, and case studies to disseminate the insights developed to the sustainability and transition community as well as the wider public. The work of the SRE on current and future technologies and on the qualification of transition pathways and plans at the level of industries and assets will inform the community of EDHEC Business School researchers working on climate transition and climate finance. Such work would contribute to creating a system of knowledge of climate- and environmentally- relevant information supporting double-materiality analyses (of the climate impact of transitioning activities and the economic and financial impact of transitions).
Representative publications would include studies of:
Research degree (PhD)
Engineering qualification, a specialisation in industrial engineering (transport or energy) would be highly relevant
Experience of producing written research key
Exposure to climate science and climate transition scenario (building) highly relevant
A minimum of 5 year+ experience, industrial experience welcome
A minimum of 5 year+ exposure to finance welcome
