Job Description

Individuals with undergraduate training and limited prior work experience join IEc as Research Analysts (RA). Working with other IEc consultants, Research Analysts gather and evaluate data; perform analyses using a variety of economic, financial, or scientific methods; and communicate results in both written and oral form. RAs work with a variety of other IEc staff, and must be able to effectively perform as part of a project team. An RA's responsibilities require consistent exercise of discretion and judgment to work on projects of significance to IEc and its clients.

Research Analysts draw on knowledge from a wide range of specialized disciplines including economics, applied mathematics, public policy, engineering, chemistry, biology, ecology, and other environmental sciences; thus, academic training in any one of these areas may qualify a candidate for this position. Successful candidates possess a Bachelor's degree with high academic rank, have strong analytic and problem solving skills, and speak and write effectively.

Research Analysts are eligible for promotion to Senior Research Analyst. Research Analysts and Senior Research Analysts often return to graduate school after working at IEc to pursue training in management, environmental science, public policy, economics, or law.
