Research Analyst, World Resources Institute (WRI)
As the Natural Climate Solutions Research Analyst II, you will conduct research on the transformational changes required across forests, land, freshwater, and ocean ecosystems to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C, halt biodiversity loss, and secure a more just, equitable future for all. Your analysis will be featured on Systems Change Lab’s data platform, the State of Climate Action reports (WRI’s most downloaded publication in 2021), and other knowledge products published by the Lab, WRI’s Climate Program, and partner organizations.
You should have a demonstrated track record of conducting independent research at the intersection of climate change and biodiversity; experience writing technical reports, working papers, and issue briefs, among other publications; familiarity with quantitative and qualitative research methods; and a deep commitment to using science-based research findings to inform the work of governments, corporations, and civil society organizations. With support from research staff within the Systems Change Lab and WRI’s Climate Program, you will play a critical role in developing policy-relevant, cutting-edge research.
