The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation comprised of 38 member countries, that works to build better policies for better lives. Our mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.  Together with governments, policy makers and citizens, we work on establishing evidence-based international standards, and finding solutions to a range of social, economic and environmental challenges. From improving economic performance and creating jobs to fostering strong education and fighting international tax evasion, we provide a unique forum and knowledge hub for data and analysis, exchange of experiences, best-practice sharing, and advice on public policies and international standard-setting.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an intergovernmental organisation committed to advancing security of energy supply, economic growth and environmental sustainability through energy policy co-operation.  The IEA operates as an autonomous body within the framework of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).  Both the OECD and the IEA seek opportunities to work with an increasing number of non-members of growing importance to the world economy (countries beyond IEA). The Agency aims to foster the contribution of the energy sector to economic development and environmental sustainability across the globe.

The IEA seeks to recruit several energy modellers to work with the modelling team responsible for the Energy Technology Perspectives series to contribute to analysis of long-term regional and sectoral clean energy technology trends. The successful candidate will have a strong background in energy modelling with a focus on clean end-use technologies in particular those related to the manufacturing industry and buildings sectors. He/she will contribute to the modelling, analysis and drafting informing a range of projects, including but not limited to Energy Technology Perspectives, country net-zero roadmaps, technology roadmaps and sectoral deep dives, and across the whole range of technology aspects related to clean energy transitions of the manufacturing industry and buildings sectors.
