Research Associate

NMR is currently seeking candidates for a Research Associate position. We are a small but expanding consulting firm specializing in the evaluation of energy efficiency and renewable energy programs. Efficiency and renewables are burgeoning, providing excellent career opportunities for social scientists in a field that makes a difference.

NMR currently seeks to hire individuals possessing the knowledge, skills, and abilities typically gained through master’s level graduate education or prior work in policy, economics, sociology, or other social science programs. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Designing, implementing, and analyzing survey data
  • Conducting semi-structured interviews
  • Performing descriptive quantitative analyses using SPSS or similar data analysis packages
  • Writing clear and concise research summaries, memoranda, and reports

We prefer candidates with experience addressing energy-related concerns, and also those who understand the principles and practices of program evaluation. However, NMR will consider candidates with relevant skills and expertise gained in other fields.

The ideal candidate has recently completed or will soon complete a master’s degree in policy, economics, sociology, or another social science field. We will also consider candidates with bachelor’s degrees who have relevant work experience. Successful employees should have strong expectations of rapid advancement in this growing company and field.

NMR is committed to the environment and to minimal greenhouse gas emissions. Our carbon footprint is much smaller than similarly sized office-based businesses in the Northeast. We offer competitive benefits, including health, dental, disability, 401K, T passes for those who plan to commute via public transportation, and three weeks of paid vacation (up to five weeks after multiple years of employment).
