China is the world`s largest emitter of carbon dioxide. Thus, how energy decisions are made in China are crucial to the global progress against climate change. Two Penn State researchers, an energy economist and a political scientist, are engaged in a research agenda to examine how China`s national energy decisions are made. An undergraduate researcher position is now available to expedite this work. The successful candidate will have computer, data manipulation and data analysis skills to help manage the project`s substantial database. The position requires someone who is fluent in Chinese.
