Natural Resources Defense Council Energy Research and Policy Analyst


The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is a non-profit environmental advocacy organization. We use law, science, and the support of 3.1 million members and online activists to protect the planet’s wildlife and wild places and to ensure the rights of all people to clean air, clean water, and healthy communities. NRDC was founded in 1970 and our staff helped write some of America’s bedrock environmental laws, including the Clean Water Act, and many of the implementing regulations. Today, our staff of more than 700 lawyers, scientists, economists, policy advocates, communications experts, and others work across the United States and internationally from our offices in New York; Washington, D.C.; Chicago; Santa Monica; San Francisco; Bozeman, Montana; and Beijing.

Position Summary:

NRDC is seeking an Energy Research and Policy Analyst to work with the International team and Climate and Clean Energy team in our Washington, DC office.  The analyst’s work will support NRDC’s campaign to address fossil fuel infrastructure investment overseas and scale up deployment of clean energy alternatives, by helping build global awareness of the research and data on stranded asset risks from fossil fuel infrastructure, informing the public of the high emissions impact of fossil fuel infrastructure (particularly LNG), and supporting advocacy to shift U.S. investments abroad to clean energy.

The analyst will be responsible for gathering data and publishing analysis on global energy trends, especially trends related to global LNG trade flows and U.S. LNG exports. The analyst will conduct research, produce materials, and coordinate with groups globally to identify resources and analysis on the impact of LNG on global decarbonization efforts. The analyst would also serve as an expert voice in front of select U.S. government agencies, such as the State Department or Export-Import Bank.

The analyst should have some familiarity with energy systems and planning, GHG accounting protocols and/or life-cycle analysis, project finance, and fossil fuel corporate supply chains and infrastructure. The analyst will work closely with a global coordinator on disseminating NRDC research abroad and identifying effective strategies for advocacy.
