CLIR/DLF Postdoctoral Fellowship in Data Curation for Energy Social Science

This CLIR/DLF sponsored postdoctoral fellowship in Data Curation for Energy Social Science is hosted jointly between CREOS and the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research (CEEPR). The original research by the postdoc will be under the direction of Christopher R. Knittel, Ph.D, George P. Shultz Professor of Applied Economics, MIT, Director, Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, MIT and Chris Bourg, Ph.D, Director, MIT Libraries.

Postdoctoral Research Program in Equitable and Open Scholarship supported by the Mellon Foundation

The Mellon Foundation has generously funded a three-year program which will enable CREOS to bring three postdoctoral scholars to campus to work on CREOS question areas. Under the supervision of Chris Bourg, Ph.D, Director, MIT Libraries, Micah Altman, Ph.D, Research Scientist, and other MIT faculty and Libraries staff, these postdocs will develop a robust set of research projects under each of the areas of:

  • Incentives and barriers to open and equitable scholarship
  • Impacts of open and equitable scholarship
  • Economic models for open and equitable scholarship

Research on the Economic Impacts of Open Access Monographs

This project is a joint venture between the CREOS and Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT. Primary Investigators are Roger Levy, Ph.D Associate Professor in theĀ Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, and director of the Computational Psycholinguistics Laboratory, and Chris Bourg, Ph.D, Director, MIT Libraries. The goal of this project is to more fully understand and predict the economic costs and impacts of making long-form scholarly communications more openly available. There will be a UROP joining Levy, Bourg, and CREOS Data Scientist, Micah Altman, Ph.D for Summer 2020 as a part of this research.
