ESG Researcher, ESG Analytics Lab

Job Profile Title
Temporary Employee - Non-Exempt

Job Description Summary
Within the last five years, the share of total global assets under management actively weighting Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors has doubled (to $30.7 Trillion or 39% of total AUM) as has the share of executives, board members, and investment managers who consider ESG issues to be material. At the same time, however, the confidence of executives, board members, and investment managers in the data available to evaluate the materiality of ESG factors has halved. ESG scores across proprietary data providers have been demonstrated to be unreliable and often lean on outdated information around relevant ESG factors—others omit pertinent factors in their scoring altogether.

The ESG Analytics Lab seeks to solve these problems by leveraging Wharton's demonstrated expertise in analytics. We focus on developing high-quality, replicable academic research and pedagogy resulting in insights that can help current and future investors, asset managers, and other ESG integrators make informed decisions.
