Tätigkeitsprofil:

The candidate will contribute to a long-term research project investigating how households in rural Mongolia adapt to climate change. Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the project evaluates the impact of two adaptation interventions on households with quantitative methods: (1) the provision of daily weather forecasts and medium-term projections of extreme weather events to households; and (2) an index-based weather insurance that provides indemnity payments to insured households in the aftermath of an extreme weather event. Both Randomized Control Trials (RCTs) and quasi-experimental methods will be used to establish a valid counterfactual. Moreover, the project will implement two additional waves of the Coping with Shocks in Mongolia Household Panel Survey, for which three waves were implemented between 2012 and 2015 (www.diw.de/mongolia).

Key responsibilities:

  • Contribute to designing the household survey questionnaire for waves 4 and 5 and assist in supervising its implementation in rural Mongolia. This also includes conducting a pilot survey in the field and training local project staff.
  • Assist in supervising the development and implementation of two RCTs on weather forecasts in the field in close collaboration with Mongolian project partners.
  • Analyze the data with micro-econometric methods, write scientific papers, and present results at scientific conferences.
  • Contribute to writing policy reports based on project results and participate in dissemination events targeting policymakers.
  • Contribute to project administration tasks.

Anforderungsprofil:

Requirements:
