The UC Berkeley Labor Center is seeking a new Director of the Green Economy Program to lead research, education, and policy projects in the intersection of climate, jobs, and equity.

The mission of the Labor Center’s Green Economy program is to advance solutions to the climate crisis that support workers in the transition to a low carbon and sustainable economy. Specifically, we aim to ensure that jobs in low-carbon industries are good, family sustaining jobs, provide workers from marginalized communities pathways into these jobs, support workers in declining industries, and empower unions and workers to influence the transition to a low carbon and sustainable economy.

The director will work with other staff and students to carry out new research, education, and field initiatives that seek to bridge the “jobs vs. environment” divide. This is a senior position, and includes developing and leading initiatives, supervising staff and student researchers, fundraising, developing and managing budgets, and contributing to organizational leadership. Outgoing director Carol Zabin can support the new director if needed.
