One year post doc: We seek a post-doctoral scholar at NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business to develop research to understand the knowledge and experience investors and capital asset managers need to incorporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) into their work. This is a collaboration with Stockholm School of Economics.
The Research: In the financial sector, 1 in 4 dollars are invested with some type of ESG screen, yet many investors and capital asset managers receive little training on these topics in business schools. They are learning--on the job-- how to incorporate ESG into their work. We are interested in learning from investors and capital asset managers with global footprints. The post doc will identify the gap that exists between the ESG knowledge and skills needed for investors and capital asset managers, and what recent hires bring to their new roles. This may include identifying the potential benefits (e.g. more funds invested, higher returns generated, or higher-value investment strategies) that might accrue when asset managers gain more ESG knowledge and experiences. Also, the post doc's research may results in assessments and recommendation for ways in which business schools might address the current ESG knowledge and skill gaps.
