Project Drawdown is the world’s leading resource for climate solutions.
Founded in 2014, Project Drawdown® is a nonprofit organization that seeks to help the world reach “Drawdown”— the future point in time when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline.
Since the 2017 publication of the New York Times bestseller, Drawdown, the organization has emerged as a leading resource for information and insight about climate solutions. We continue to develop that resource by conducting rigorous review and assessment of climate solutions, creating compelling and human communication across mediums, and partnering with efforts to accelerate climate solutions globally.
Cities, universities, corporations, philanthropies, policymakers, communities, and more turn to Project Drawdown, as they look to advance effective climate action. We aim to support the growing constellation of efforts to move climate solutions forward and move the world toward Drawdown—as quickly, safely, and equitably as possible.
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Project Drawdown is funded by individual and institutional donations.
Project Drawdown is currently recruiting for 1-2 research analysts for our Oceans project. The primary goals of the Project Drawdown Oceans project are to:
The result of this project is for marine climate solutions to be known widely and publicly alongside already prominent sectors such as energy and transport, just as Project Drawdown has highlighted the impact of the agriculture and food sectors. Ultimately, this will further global understanding of the potential for marine solutions and drive investment and implementation in this crucial area.
The ideal candidate will have experience in interdisciplinary science and modeling and a desire to build on this as a researcher. The candidate will also be creative in linking scholarship with practice. Candidates should be vitally interested in climate solutions.
This is a part-time, temporary position for 3 months.
Location: Work is conducted remotely, worldwide.
