Post-Doctoral Researcher, Energy Justice & Public Finance
With partners in a new community-driven research project from Little Big Horn College, University of Wyoming (R. Coupal!), and the Center for American Progress, I hope to recruit a post-doctoral researcher for an exciting 2-year position beginning in 2022. The position has been approved but is not yet posted on the MSU web site. I urge interested candidates to reach out to me if you wish to learn more.
The post-doctoral researcher will support a community-based participatory research initiative focused on the role of fiscal policy and public services in the challenge of "just transitions" for Native American economies and communities--here the case is the Apsáalooke (Crow) nation in Montana. The project involves qualitative research, fiscal and other public policy analysis, and supporting a public finance leadership institute. The entirety of the project is co-designed with and directed by a cohort of Apsáalooke community leaders.
We seek a scholar with a PhD or equivalent expertise in Geography, Community Development, Applied Economics, or other relevant fields. Most importantly, we seek a scholar who is passionate and knowledgeable about participatory methods and bi-cultural knowledge production as well as public finance questions. The scholar will have access to mentorship and engagement with the entire project team and will be co-located at Little Big Horn College and Montana State University.
This is a unique opportunity to do important and challenging work and I hope you will help us spread the word.
Interested candidates should send an email inquiry directly to Julia Haggerty; however, formal application materials are not requested at this time.
