The Climate Program at World Resources Institute (WRI) works to advance practical solutions to reduce and remove greenhouse gas emissions, deploy clean energy solutions, improve resilience to climate impacts, and achieve a strong, clean economy that benefits all Americans. We do so through rigorous peer-reviewed expert analysis, consultation, convening, coalition building, and clear communications. We work at all levels of government and with leading businesses across the United States. Our experience, reputation and connections in the policy arena, the private sector and beyond place us in a unique position to help shape federal and state climate policy and generate new ideas and practices for low-carbon development over the coming years.
In this role, you will contribute to the research and analytical efforts of WRI U.S. and its mission of providing independent and authoritative evidence for how the U.S. can meet its short- and long-term climate commitments. This will include support across WRI U.S.’ portfolio of projects, including work on Climate Federalism, Renewable Natural Gas as a Climate Strategy, Carbon Pricing, and America’s Pledge, an initiative aiming to aggregate and quantify the impact of city, state, and business climate actions and examine how additional action can impact the nation’s ability to meet its climate commitments. You will help support this work by researching and compiling quantitative and qualitative information on state and local climate actions in the U.S. You will also contribute to research reports and communications materials as needed. This work will be done in close collaboration with project leads, technical partners, and other WRI programs. Strong consideration will be given to candidates with quantitative skill and familiarity with energy and climate related data in the U.S.
