Insti­tute for Advanced Sus­tain­ab­il­ity Stud­ies - Research Area on Energy Sys­tems and Soci­etal Change

The Insti­tute for Advanced Sus­tain­ab­il­ity Stud­ies e.V. (IASS) is fin­anced by the Fed­eral Min­istry of Edu­ca­tion and Research and the Fed­eral State of Branden­burg. The IASS con­ducts research with the goal of under­stand­ing, advan­cing, and guid­ing pro­cesses of soci­etal change towards sus­tain­able devel­op­ment. In order to develop a com­mon under­stand­ing of sus­tain­ab­il­ity chal­lenges and gen­er­ate poten­tial solu­tions the IASS col­lab­or­ates with diverse act­ors from sci­ence, poli­cy­mak­ing and pub­lic admin­is­tra­tion as well as busi­ness and civil soci­ety. It pur­sues a research approach that is trans­form­at­ive, trans­dis­cip­lin­ary and co-cre­at­ive. Fur­ther inform­a­tion about the IASS can be accessed under

(Stu­dent) Research Assist­ant pos­i­tions in the Research Group „Path­ways to Sus­tain­able Energy“


Focus on global energy trans­ition policy and polit­ics & geo­pol­it­ics of hydro­gen

Work­ing field:

  • Con­duct­ing desk research in the field of cli­mate and energy policy, global energy trans­ition, geo­pol­it­ics of hydro­gen, green indus­trial policy
  • Com­pil­ing and cre­at­ing graph­ical rep­res­ent­a­tions of data
  • Sup­port­ing the organ­iz­a­tion, imple­ment­a­tion and doc­u­ment­a­tion of work­shops/events
  • Sup­port­ing the pre­par­a­tion of present­a­tions and pub­lic­a­tions
  • Admin­is­trat­ive sup­port
  • Sup­port­ing the imple­ment­a­tion of third-party pro­jects, such as “Geo­pol­it­ics of the Energy Trans­form­a­tion: Implic­a­tions of an Inter­na­tional Hydro­gen Eco­nomy” (GET Hydro­gen, and “Global Hydro­gen Poten­tial Atlas” (HYPAT,


  • Uni­versity train­ing in the fields of eco­nom­ics, social and polit­ical sci­ences, sus­tain­ab­il­ity stud­ies, innov­a­tion stud­ies, regional stud­ies or related fields
  • Very good know­ledge of Eng­lish; strong know­ledge of Ger­man is a plus
  • Know­ledge and/or interest in inter­na­tional issues related to cli­mate and energy policy, energy trans­ition
  • Exper­i­ence and/or interest in work­ing at the inter­face between research, policy and soci­ety
  • Exper­i­ence and/or interest in pub­lic policy ana­lysis
  • Exper­i­ence in the qual­it­at­ive or quant­it­at­ive ana­lysis of data is a plus
  • Strong degree of self-motiv­a­tion and abil­ity to work both inde­pend­ently and in a team envir­on­ment

What we of­fer:

(Stu­dent) research assist­ant pos­i­tions, approx­im­ately 15 hours per week

We offer a dynamic and inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research envir­on­ment focused on top­ics with a high degree
of soci­etal rel­ev­ance; access to a strong national and inter­na­tional net­work in the field of cli­mate and
energy policy; and a sup­port­ive and col­lab­or­at­ive work envir­on­ment within an inter­na­tional team.
