The Center for Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Policy (3CSEP) at Central
European University (CEU), Budapest, is inviting Masters degree holders with
an interest in the research areas of the Center to apply for the PhD program

candidates will pursue a doctoral degree at the Department while taking part
in research activities of 3CSEP and working on a related dissertation topic
under the supervision of Prof. Diana Ürge-Vorsatz, Director of 3CSEP.
The research agenda will be developed to closely match the candidate’s
interests and capacities. Core areas of research currently undertaken at 3CSEP
include the contribution of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources to
climate change mitigation, with a particular focus on energy used in
buildings, as well as co-benefits of sustainable energy solutions (economic
impacts, alleviation of fuel poverty, etc.). Much of the research is
policy-related and contributes to the governance of international and national
decision-making processes related to climate change and sustainable energy.
For more details please consult the Center’s website at http://3csep.ceu.hu/,
especially the section on current and former research projects.
Candidates for this position must hold a Masters degree in an area relevant
for the interdisciplinary research conducted at 3CSEP, such as economics,
engineering, environmental studies or related subjects. Candidates should have
demonstrated academic excellence as well as a passion for research and
commitment to academic success. Strong quantitative analytical skills as well
as good writing abilities in English are a distinct advantage.
